Mechanical Fitness Assessment In Edmonton Alberta
All AMVIC-licensed businesses must provide customers with a completed Mechanical Fitness Assessment (MFA) form before entering into a sales agreement/purchase contract for any used vehicle—it’s the law. AMVIC enforces the use of the MFA form. This standardized form ensures a uniform process for assessing all used vehicles.
Does a MFA expire?
An MFA is valid for 120 days after the date it was issued. Once it has expired a new assessment must be completed prior to entering into a sales contract.
What is an MFA ?
Mechanical Assessment Form is an assessment and not a pass/fail inspection. If the vehicle does not comply with the items listed on the form, the business can still sell the vehicle to the buyer, provided it is fully disclosed to the buyer with the details of the items that are missing or does not comply.
