Type 1: disability that typically does not affect seriously the operation or safety of the vehicle.
Type 2: disability which seriously affects the functioning and safety of the vehicle, as well as its identification.
Type 3: very severe disability which means stopping the vehicle.

Vehicles are disapproved if:

They have more than five failures of type 1.

The deficiency or deficiencies previously noted aren’t corrected, except those relating to vehicle identification.

The vehicles with type 2 deficiencies in steering, suspension and braking systems, cannot carry passengers or cargo until they are approved.
