Not police (RCMP) but commercial vehicle inspectors since ICBC may want the bus insured as a commercial vehicle.

Once you passed the hurdle of a classification change, they won't care. If you have the correct paperwork, they will accept the previous inspectors decision.


Obviously, if you were to rip out everything you did to pass inspection, put chairs back in and start carrying passengers, they will be interested again. But not because your classification as rec vehicle was incorrect.


With regards to not passing it, rules are rules. For each of the items described i meet what is defined there. Anyway, I'll probably be attempting this approach when I get that far, so we will see

on the path to get my skoolie - still lurking and learning - eyeing up where I may be able to get the best deal for my $, what motors/transmissions/rear end ratios, etc, etc - this morning I phoned my local (small town ) agent about a trip permit to bring a bus home - "get a permit from the province the bus is located in, phone my agent and pay for the insurance by cc" - simple! - she also advised that I get a transfer permit amply long in case I have trouble along the way - didn't sound like I'd have much of a problem changing the classification to motorhome, provided I abided by the rules

I just phoned an ICB office and asked what I needed to change the registration to MH - they were right back with a straight forward answer - I'd suggest giving your local office or franchise a phone call - took me 2 or 3 minutes to get the answer, then you know what's needed for sure
