Modified Collector Insurance

Post by CP » 24 Mar 2018 19:03

I just found out there was such a thing as modified collector insurance. It would seem to me most of the cars I see would qualify under this with all of the various alterations and performance adds that have been done. The only negative I see is the no driving to work thing, but I don't how much of a problem that is for most. The rate is soo much cheaper than regular insurance, are there any other restrictions I am not aware of?

As the vehicle has to go through an inspection...it would not work for me say.

I have NO E-brake and no front bumper, that would blow me out of contention. While I could maybe mount some form of front bumper, the e-brake situation is a no go. Unless I get stopped in some way and am ordered for an inspection, I do not want to red flag my car in any way.

Just make sure you are aware of what is required before you embark on maybe unleashing something you wished you had not brought up.

My KA swapped car passed provincial inspection a few years back. As long as the car ticks all the boxes, it should be good to go as far as passing the modified collector inspection.

Got modified collector plates late last year. You need to have another insured vehicle to qualify but very easy process otherwise. $325.00 a year for insurance.

Thanks for the responses. Looking further I think we would not pass on a couple of points, one being the working parking brake and the other possibly the seat belts. I think Keith you have the right idea, don't open a can of worms as you might end up with the result you don't want.

Thanks again
