I will be building a vehicle from scratch and know it will be very challenging to obtain a road worthy certificate if I build it the way I want. Where I live, they actually have very good documentation on the process and what they will check. A while back I was in touch with an engineer from the government he he mentioned a few things that my vehicle had to comply with. A few are listed below: 1. Exterior lighting must comply with modern standards (e.g. Two headlights, signal lights front and rear, etc.). 2. Dash must comply with modern standards (speedo, idiot lights?, SAE symbols for signals, etc) 3. Windshield with wiper system 4. Interior heater 5. Adjustable seat with proper seat belt and anchors 6. Exhaust must not be exposed and must exit rear passenger door 7. Gas tank must be located in a "protected" area 8. Wheels must covered by fenders If I followed all of the above, there is no way my vehicle would be true to the design. What I don't understand is that there are plenty of vehicles out there that don't meet some or any of the specs above. I understand that there are likely huge variations across Canada and USA, but locally I've seen vehicles that have exposed/open headers, wheels with no fenders, non-compliant lighting/signals, etc. I would really like to get mine road certified, but will likely still go ahead with the build if I can't. Just curious what others have experienced getting their vehicles certified for the road where they live.
