WINNIPEG, Man. — Truckers running with a Manitoba base plate in combination with an Ontario or Alberta PMVI sticker could find themselves in hot water.
As a result of the International Registration Plan (IRP), carriers may be in a rush to change their base plate licensing from Alberta or Ontario to Manitoba. However, the Manitoba Trucking Association (MTA) is reminding carriers that Ontario and Alberta have 12-month PMVI periods, while Manitoba has a six month period.
This means charges could be laid on carriers that make a simple oversight and forget to update their PMVI stickers on time.
Truckers who are confused about the requirements are encouraged to call the MTA or Manitoba Department of Transportation and Government Services at 204-945-7904.
