Full text
214. No person may put any of the following vehicles into operation:
(1)  a road vehicle intended to be operated on a public highway that has undergone alterations which may affect its compliance with the Motor Vehicle Safety Act (S.C. 1993, c. 16);
(2)  a road vehicle intended to be operated on a public highway that has undergone alterations, including to the chassis, the body, a system or a mechanism, which may reduce its stability or braking capacity, or that was transformed into another type of vehicle; or
(3)  a motor vehicle made by hand.
Despite the first paragraph, vehicles described in that paragraph may be put into operation if they have first undergone an inspection of the alterations made or, in the case of a vehicle made by hand, of its components and their assembly. For that purpose, the Société may also require any information that is necessary to determine whether the vehicle is safe.
The inspection shall be carried out before the mechanical inspection prescribed by subparagraph 8 of the first paragraph of section 521.
The Société shall issue an inspection certificate when it is proved to the Société’s satisfaction that the vehicle is safe.
The inspection prescribed by this section however is not required if the Société considers that the safety of road users is not compromised.
The Société has exclusive jurisdiction to carry out the inspection of altered vehicles or vehicles made by hand and to issue inspection certificates. The Société may, however, on the conditions it determines, appoint persons authorized to carry out the inspection of such vehicles on its behalf.
