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.
Dan London, for
The Fenderless Steering Committee:

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.
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.
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
See your ICBC Broker to correct the registration.
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.

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 email@example.com for posting

Fenderless collector cars are now legal on the B.C. roads
July 1/16 West Kelowna 2:45pm
Owners of qualifying specialty cars without mud flaps or fenders can now operate legally, thanks to an amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act Regulation, announced Premier Christy Clark.
“Whether they live here or are visiting, owners of these special, modified vehicles can now drive our roads legally,” Premier Clark said. “These owners take great pride in their cars and this summer, they can take them where they belong – the open road.”
This amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act regulation exempts qualifying vehicles from the requirement to have mudguards or mud flaps – as an alternative to fenders – on their cars. Now, owners of specialty cars can operate their vehicles without mudguards or mud flaps where the highway is dry and paved. Qualifying vehicles must have been built in 1940 or earlier, or be replicas of this vintage of vehicle.
“We heard from specialty car owners that this regulation was getting in the way of the legal operation of otherwise safe cars on our roads,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone. “This is a common-sense fix to unnecessary red tape that was making it difficult to attract collector car events to our province. Now, thousands of owners can travel to events, or simply take their cars for a spin without special consideration or concerns about breaking the law.”
Prior to this change, owners of these types of vintage or specially vehicles without fenders ran the risk of operating outside of the regulations of the Motor Vehicle Act, which required all vehicles to have mud flaps or fenders. These specific, 1940s-style cars did not have them as part of their design.
“This is great news for owners of specialty cars, both here in B.C. and outside of our province, especially as we get ready for a busy season of summer travel through this beautiful province,” said president of the Vintage Car Club of Canada, Okanagan chapter, Jim Carpenter. “With this change, I expect more event organizers will choose to have their next collector car show in B.C. with more to come in the future.”
This amendment is one of a number of motor vehicle-related amendments made in the past couple of years that provides clarity to regulations in the act. This includes providing more clarity regarding motorcycle parking distances, better language to improve the enforcement of Keep Right Except to Pass regulations and more information regarding requirements for winter tires.
More details to be released in coming days.
