Safety Fitness Certificates

Manitoba requires all motor carriers and operators of regulated vehicles to have a safety fitness certificate (SFC). Manitoba Infrastructure issues SFCs to Manitoba-based motor carriers and operators.

Motor carriers and operators of regulated vehicles are:

  • a truck or truck tractor with a registered gross vehicle weight of 4500 kilograms or more
  • a passenger vehicle designed with a seating capacity of 11 or more persons, including the driver
  • a school bus designed with a seating capacity of 11 or more persons, including the driver

Farm trucks and vehicles used exclusively for personal use do not need an SFC.

Once you have acquired the proper insurance , you can apply for an SFC. The SFC is valid for one year and must be renewed annually when your vehicle registration is renewed.

You can apply for an SFC online or download a form and apply by fax, email or in-person (PDF).
