Small trailer safety checks to cost more as of Aug. 1
By DAVID JACKSON Provincial Reporter Thu, Jul 28 - 4:56 AM The province is jacking up safety inspection fees for small trailers starting Aug. 1.
The new fees apply to trailers with a registered weight of less than 4,500 kilograms, such as camper trailers, small utility trailers and snowmobile trailers.
There are about 45,000 such trailers registered in the province, says Service Nova Scotia.
The fee for trailers without brakes goes to $15 from $10.71, a 40 per cent increase. For single-axle trailers with hydraulic or electric brakes, the fee will be $20.50, a 91 per cent increase from the current $10.71.
Trailers with more than one axle will cost an extra $10.50 per axle.
Service Nova Scotia spokeswoman Deborah Bayer said some outlets performing the inspections have complained that the fees were too low. She said the changes also bring the province in line with fees in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
The changes are among several amendments to the province’s vehicle inspection regulations.
Another change will allow New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island residents who have their vehicles inspected here to get a one-year sticker. Inspections in those provinces are good for one year, while it’s two for Nova Scotians.
Certified technicians from other parts of Canada will also be allowed to do vehicle inspections here.
