The Spring/Fall Mandatory Inspections are held in May and October. Taxicabs are inspected twice yearly and all vehicles currently licenced as a taxicab in the City must appear. The only exemptions are for vehicles that have previously inspected or where a change of vehicle has taken place in the thirty days previous to the beginning of the inspection period. Taxicab Owners will be notified as to the time and date of their inspection by mail. As in years previous the inspection appointment will be made for a window of time during which the car must be presented for inspection.
At each mandatory inspection vehicles are checked for compliance with the by-law with regards to such things as vehicle condition, safety equipment and proper documentation.
