Fender Less Update

Posted & filed under Uncategorized.

Fenderless on British Columbia Roads

An update from the Fender less Steering Committee May l, 2017

Since our last communique, we have continued ongoing discussion with staff of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, including the Commercial Vehicle Safety & Enforcement Branch, and Insurance Corporation of British Columbia.

The Manager of Policy Development for the Ministry of Transportation has completed a review of the requirement within the revised Motor Vehicle Act that fender less cars be registered into the Collector Plate Program with Insurance Corporation of British Columbia and Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement. All agree with the position put forth by the Fender less Steering Committee that this requirement is restrictive, unnecessary and therefore is to be removed.

The process is for an amendment to be drafted by the Manager of Policy Development, forwarded to the Fender less Steering Committee for review, then sent to the Executive Branch for approval following which it will be signed by the Minister of Transportation.

Given the provincial election, the amendment will be signed by the Minister of Transportation of the new government. We expect the timeline for completion to be September.

More to come.

ICBC Modified Collector Bulletin

Posted & filed under Uncategorized.

Collector Motor Vehicle Program Expansion UPDATE

Updated information regarding weigh slip requirements

All replica vehicles require a weigh scale certificate as part the BC Assigned VIN requirement (Application of BC Assigned VIN MV1325 form) with the exception of imported vehicles which already have an assigned VINS from another jurisdiction. 

Modified vehicles require a weigh scale certificate if the modifications alter the net vehicle weight.  Motor Vehicle Act s. 3(7) that requires ICBC to be satisfied that a description of the vehicle is provided for the purpose of vehicle registration, licensing and insurance fees/premiums.  Due to fee Regulations being structured into weight categories, sometimes a small change in net vehicle weight will require ICBC to charge a different licence fee.  A person making the modifications is responsible for the determination of if the modifications alter the net vehicle weight.

The net vehicle weight is that of an empty vehicle except for the maximum capacity of fuel, oil and coolant necessary for its operation (per MVAR s. Div. 1). 

For Imported Vehicles in Restoration, a weigh scale certificate is not required to register a vehicle in restoration (MV1458 – Registration Application for Vehicles in Restoration) but is required when applying to license an imported or out of province vehicle in restoration once the vehicle is completed (MV1459 – Application for Verification of Description of Completed Vehicle).


Below is a recap of the changes to the Collector Motor Vehicle Program as previously discussed if of any assistance with communications and/or answering any questions. 

·        BC’s Collector Vehicle Program has expanded to include modified vehicles from 1974 or earlier, from the current 1958 cut-off year and now includes replica vehicles that resemble production vehicles manufactured in or prior to 1942.  

·        The Application for Modified Collector Motor Vehicle Program (MV1426) has been updated to recognize the eligibility of modified vehicles with the model year of 1974 or earlier.   

·        A new form, Application for Replica/Constructed Collector Motor Vehicle Program (MV1427), was created for replica vehicles that resemble 1942 or earlier vehicle models.  Eligible vehicles will now be registered according to the make and model year they are built to resemble.    

·        ICBC began accepting collector vehicle applications on March 30th.   If a vehicle is approved, collector plates will be sent to brokers after the program changes take effect on June 30, 2017. 

·        Brokers can check the status (received, approved or rejected) of a collector plate application by checking notes in ICBC’s new insurance sales system.   

·        Customers should please ensure their vehicle meets all the eligibility criteria before applying and that their application is completed in full.  Incomplete applications will be rejected. 

·        Customers can visit ICBC’s collector and modified vehicles page for more information or contact ICBC’s Collector Vehicle Department at 604-661-2756.  

Replica Vehicles 

All BC registered replica vehicles including replica vehicles on regular (non-collector) plates will be registered as they resemble.  These changes will take place as soon as possible after June 30, 2017.  ICBC will be sending letters to vehicle owners regarding this change and providing information on eligibility and the process for changing their vehicle registration. 

All Modified and Replica applications require a current weigh slip.


Thanks, Gina

ICBC Collector Vehicle and Related Forms March 30/17

Posted & filed under Uncategorized.

There are a lot of questions out there, so here is a summary of the forms, hopefully this will make it clear.
Remember MARCH 30 is the application start date, for the Mod Collector and Replica change, so see your ICBC Insurance Broker for forms, at the this point in time they won’t be available on line.
Don’t use the old MV1426 form only use the updated form dated March 30/2017
MV1437 used only to change the Registration status of a vehicle to modified and is not a collector plate application form.
If one has a vehicle that is modified it must be registered as one regardless of how it is going to or is plated. Blue White, Collector or Personal.
The Registration form also includes a Insurance document, as such it is critical that everything describing the vehicle is correct or your coverage may be affected.
( colour, vin number, status stock modified)See your ICBC Broker for more information and to update the registration. 
MV1426 revised  application for Modified Collector 1974 and prior (dated bottom left corner)
MV1427 application form for Replicas 1942 and prior

Application for Replica/Constructed Collector Motor Vehicle Program (MV1427), for replica vehicles that resemble 1942 or earlier vehicle models

Eligible vehicles will now be registered according to the make and model year they are built to resemble.


If you have a Replica Home built or any such vehicle ICBC has changed the Registration form format to the following, so if it was described as

Year 2014 ,Make Replica, model Ford it will now show as

Year 1937



See your ICBC Broker to correct the registration.

GOV’T NEWS RELEASE Mod Collector change

Posted & filed under Uncategorized.

Great news this announcement gives the time line for applications.

This has been a long journey which started in 2013, with a lot of data collection from the Car Enthusiasts and other sources to assemble a business case to justify  the changes to the program. This journey included many meetings with ICBC, the Ministry of Transportation and Minister Stone, which included a lot of in depth discussion about the pros and cons of the age criteria and of course about Replicas. The extra time was not wasted, it produced some positive changes such as a broader range of inclusion for Replicas. A Special Thanks to everyone involved SVABC members , the car enthusiasts, for their input and support.

In Rememberance of Ron Peigl

Posted & filed under Uncategorized.


Ron Peigl played a huge role is assisting with the birth of the collector plate. He was the VCCC liaison with the SVABC and has never been given the recognition he deserved for assisting with the birth of the collector plate

The Minister Russ Fraser has B00-000 and Peigl B00-001

He constantly tried to stay on top of Collector plate cheaters and often contacted me when I was at ICBC

Our heart felt condolences to family and friends.

Collector Car Appreciation Day

Great news, as a result of the Specialty Vehicle Association of BC request;  the Province of British Columbia has issued a Proclamation declaring July 8, 2017 and the month of July 2017 as Collector Car Appreciation Day and Month.  We are extremely happy to see this program continue, this is the fourth year and the enthusiasm continues to grow, some groups already have plans in place for 2017. Some say why, well it recognizes car enthusiasts, and their hobby  for what they give back to the community through charities, volunteering, helping the less fortunate, and the economic value it brings to their communities. Also introduces the hobby to new car enthusiasts allowing them to grow into a rewarding hobby.

Giving credit where it is due

Special Thanks to lifelong Car Enthusiast and long-time SVABC member, dating back to the late 70’s, Keith Jackman. Keith championed the Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) program request in 2013 in preparation for the Proclamation in 2014. We worked together on the justification and he continues to play an active role.  Keith’s career includes many positions one of which was Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, so he has a vast knowledge of regulations and policies.  

The SVABC will place your Collector Car Appreciation Day event information on the SVABC Web site.  Please submit to Bob Kelly  for posting

To view the Proclamation go on the SVABC Web Site to “news” scroll down and click on Reports, click on 2017 Proclamation CCAD. The same pass word as the newsletter.
