Importing a U.S. car into Canada? You need a recall letter!

Recall clearance documents verify that any defects identified by the manufacturer as a potential safety risk to the vehicle’s operator, occupants and public at large, have been corrected.

Recall clearance is required before a car can be registered and plated. The Registrar of Imported Vehicles (RIV) will not release the inspection form for your vehicle until confirmation that there are no outstanding recalls, has been received.

We have built strong relationships with key dealers and manufacturers, which allows us access to vehicle recall databases for most makes and models. It normally takes us 1-4 hours to process a recall letter and have it submitted directly to the regulators.
