124. Despite the third paragraph of section 73 of the Act
(1) when an automobile deemed to be authorized under section 293 of the Act exceeds a limit provided for in section 75, its owner is not required to submit it to the mechanical inspection provided for in subparagraph c of subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 20 of the Act before the date that occurs 1 year after the most recent mechanical inspection to which it was submitted before 10 October 2020;
(2) when an automobile meets the following conditions, its owner is not required to submit it to the mechanical inspection before 10 May 2021: (a) the automobile is used by a driver who, on 9 October 2020, was registered with a remunerated passenger transportation service as part of the Pilot project concerning remunerated passenger transportation services requested exclusively using a mobile application (chapter S-6.01, r. 2.3);
(b) on 10 October 2020 the automobile was exceeding the limit provided for in section 13 or 75.
As long as the owner of such an automobile is not required to submit it to the mechanical inspection, despite subparagraph a of paragraph 1 of section 170 of the Act, a qualified driver may use the automobile to offer remunerated passenger transportation, despite section 56 of the Act; the driver, in such case, is not required to have possession of the most recent mechanical inspection certificate referred to in that section.
The automobile referred to in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph may be registered with the operator referred to in section 299 of the Act without having first been submitted to the mechanical inspection.
