This MTO website provides complete details on annual safety inspections.
Pickups that weigh and are registered for 4,500 kgs or less are not subject to daily vehicle inspections, hours-of-work (log books) or commercial vehicle operator registration (CVOR).
Pickups that weigh or are registered for over 4,500 kgs and are only ever used for personal purposes or are only ever used to tow personal use trailers, including house and camper trailers are exempt from the requirements to have a commercial vehicle operator registration certificate, from conducting daily vehicle inspections and from drivers being subject to the hours-of-service requirements.
In order for a pickup to qualify for the above exemption it must have a vehicle weight rating of 6,000 kgs (13,227 lbs) or less and be fitted with either, the original unmodified pickup box that was installed by the manufacturer or an unmodified replacement box that duplicates the one that was installed by the manufacturer.
Pickups that weigh or are registered for over 4,500 kgs and used for both personal and business purposes may be subject to certain requirements or exemptions. For details please visit the following ministry websites:
