    Just a FYI, Transport Canada and Customs have recently gone Less paper.

    So the form 1 that we have used, are now no longer in existence..

    So the issue i see here is ICBC, cause they "Require" a form 1, so im wondering if they got the memo about the form 1.

    I will post here when i got the info.

    Interesting...That's also what the broker used to refer to for the vehicle info. Maybe more reliance on the translated export certificate now?

    Ya im guessing ICBC wont have been informed... sooo it will be a headache.

    But maybe i will be surprised.

    Have you figured out whether the Form 1 is still used? I contacted Halifax customs and MTO just a couple weeks ago and they both told me to use the Form 1.

    Thanks

    For my understanding it was as of April 1st it was going 100% but maybe thats the BC roll out..
    I have done some cars now and no form 1.

    Thanks Dah_Hunter.

    I'm sure it will be paperless across the country by the time I purchase my vehicles. Thanks

    Its all in the computer now..

    ICBC doesnt ask for it.

    you still get the B3 from customs, dont worry the government wont let you avoid tax;s.
