Do you own a passenger or light commercial vehicle that's been modified? If so, you'll need to register it as a modified vehicle. Then you can get plates and insurance, and put it on the road.
For registration purposes, a modified vehicle means a motor vehicle (passenger or light commercial) of a manufacturer's make that:
Collect and photocopy your receipts, bills of sale or invoices for the major components of the vehicle.
Obtain a "passed" vehicle inspection report from a designated inspection facility. (external)
Find out the market value of your motor vehicle.
Locate an original manufacturers' Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the vehicle. The VIN must be clearly visible for sighting by an enforcement officer at the roadside. A VIN that can only be seen, for example, by crawling under the vehicle to inspect a frame rail is not an acceptable 'public' VIN. If you can't find an original manufacturers' VIN, find out how to apply for a VIN.
Fill out an Application to Register a Modified Vehicle.
Take the completed application(s) and related documents to an Autoplan broker or mail them to ICBC.
