Questions regarding whether or not the vehicle is eligible for registration can be directed to SGI Vehicle Standards & Inspection at 306-775-6188
In most cases, the VIN plate on a vehicle is required to be located inside the operator’s compartment, adjacent to the left front roof pillar and must be visible from outside the vehicle without removing any part. If it is determined that a VIN can be assigned, the owner of the vehicle will have to make arrangements to have the windshield removed at time of inspection in order to have the VIN plate installed.
