Importing a Vehicle to BC

If you are planning to import a vehicle into BC from the US or another country, you will need to insure it for its trip to BC as well as after it’s been imported. To do this, you must follow the requirements set out by the Registrar of Imported Vehicles, Canada Border Services Agency and Transport Canada. Please visit for complete details on how to import a vehicle into BC.

Once your vehicle arrives in BC, you must get it inspected by a designated inspection facility, then bring all documentation your vehicle to Reliance Insurance Agencies so that we can verify the Vehicle Identification Number, do a physical inspection and insure it.

For more details as well as a list of designated inspection facilities, please visit the ICBC web site.
