The SAAQ has implemented various means to protect individuals against the risks inherent in using the road. One of those measures is ensuring that vehicles travelling on Québec roads are in good mechanical condition. Therefore, certain vehicles are required to undergo mechanical inspection, on either a sporadic or periodic basis.
Mechanical inspection is a legal requirement. It is a visual mechanical inspection limited to the elements listed in the Mechanical Inspection Guide. To find out the general mechanical condition of your vehicle, we strongly recommend that you have your mechanic perform an inspection.
