AirCare test fees going down in 2014
In just over a year, AirCare will be no more. The vehicle emissions inspection program has a going-away present for B.C. drivers.
AirCare has announced that it's slashing test fees in 2014. On January 1, 2014, the fee for 1992-and-newer vehicles will be lowered from $45 to $36. Fees for 1991-and-older vehicles and for re-inspections will stay at $23.
The 1992-and-newer vehicles test fee will go down $2 each successive month, bringing it to $14 in December 2014. The fee for 1991-and-older vehicles and re-inspections will decrease by $1 a month, until it's $12 in December 2014.
AirCare says it's reducing fees in response to a provincial government request. In 2012, the B.C. Liberal government decided to phase out emissions testing for light-duty vehicles.
