Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program (CVIP)



The Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program (CVIP) refers to a mandatory safety inspection program and is not a replacement for the ongoing preventive maintenance carried out by vehicle owners. An annual CVIP Inspection is required for any vehicle with a registered weight of 11,794 kg or greater when operating within Alberta, or 4500 kg or greater when operating extra-provincially.

If the CVIP expires current Alberta Legislation allows the vehicle to return to a facility to obtain the inspection. The inspection can be scheduled at any licensed CVIP facility, not necessarily the closest one. The vehicle cannot stop anywhere on the way as they must drive only to the inspection facility.

If stopped the following must be provided:
  • Phone number of the facility
  • Date and time inspection is scheduled
