A car that’s “not for sale” in Canada may not be allowed to sell in Canada if it’s covered by a car licence plate that was issued by another country, says a car buyer’s group.
The car industry has been struggling with the introduction of more and more licence plates that don’t fit in with the current standards.
The plates, typically called “A” plates, are intended to help protect the identity of the vehicle owner.
They are issued by the Vehicle Registration Division (VRD), a division of the Canada Revenue Agency that manages Canada’s automotive industry.
Under the new system, the plate’s value is based on a combination of the number of years of the car’s registration and the year of the license plate, plus a minimum of three digits.
The plate is issued for vehicles with an average of at least six years of registration and a maximum of at most 17 years of total registration.
Under this system, a vehicle with a “not-for sale” license plate can’t be sold in Canada unless the plates have been issued by a country that’s listed as a destination for Canadian vehicles.
In order to sell a car in Canada, the owner must meet the criteria set out in the VRD’s requirements, such as meeting a certain weight limit or meeting certain safety requirements.
The requirement that a vehicle meet the safety requirements applies only to cars and trucks registered in Canada.
The requirements also apply to vehicles manufactured in Canada that have been registered in that country.
“These requirements are set out by the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards Agency and do not apply to certain passenger vehicles, motorcycles, boats and other vehicles that are manufactured or imported in Canada,” the VDRSA said in an email.
“This is a major concern for our customers and has affected our ability to sell our vehicles in Canada and we are working to change this requirement so that we can continue to sell and promote vehicles with these types of standards in the future.”
However, car buyers are concerned about the new regulations, and say that even with a valid plate, the system doesn’t ensure the vehicle’s safety.
In a statement, the VDRSSA said that under the new rules, the agency will be able to revoke the licence plate, or require the owner to give the car back if they fail to meet safety requirements, including maintaining a weight limit.
The VDSA said it will not issue licences to “dishonest” vehicles that don, however, take advantage of the new requirements.
“We are not going to issue a vehicle licence to a vehicle that is not properly registered,” the agency said.
“If a vehicle is not registered, the licence will not be issued for that vehicle.
We will require the vehicle to provide proof of registration.”
The VDRS said it was working to make changes to the VRDSA regulations to allow vehicles to be sold without having to meet certain safety standards.
The agency said it would also be working to introduce a mechanism to allow a vehicle to be registered with a non-Canadian country, such a Hong Kong, or the Cayman Islands.
The new rules are expected to go into effect in the next two months.
