     Written-off Motor Vehicles

Write-offs by insurance companies
3(1)  A motor vehicle that has been damaged becomes a written-off motor
vehicle when an insurance company under a contract of  insurance does one
of the following:

     (b)  pays an amount determined under the contract of insurance for

(2)  This section does not apply to a motor vehicle that

     (b)  has had its outer body sheet metal damaged solely from hail.


Write-offs by self insureds
4(1)  If a motor vehicle is damaged by a motor vehicle for which a
financial responsibility card under section 67 of the Motor Vehicle
Administration Act has been issued and the holder of the card is liable for
the damage, the damaged motor vehicle becomes a written-off motor vehicle
when the holder of the card does one of the following:

account the vehicle's value as salvage and does not acquire ownership of
the motor vehicle.

(2)  If a motor vehicle, for which a financial responsibility card under
section 67 of the Motor Vehicle Administration Act has been issued, is
damaged and section 3 of this Regulation does not apply to the motor
vehicle, the motor vehicle becomes a written-off motor vehicle when the

     (b)  decides to sell or dispose of the motor vehicle instead of
repairing it.

insurance for the stolen motor vehicle and acquires ownership of the motor
vehicle,

     (c)  the motor vehicle is damaged by collision or upset while it is
stolen, and

     (d)  the motor vehicle is recovered,

the motor vehicle becomes a written-off motor vehicle when it is recovered.

Written-off motor vehicles from outside Alberta
6   If a motor vehicle that has been damaged is designated by a
jurisdiction outside of Alberta as a written-off motor vehicle or assigned
a similar status and the motor vehicle is brought into Alberta, the motor
vehicle is a written-off motor vehicle under this Regulation.


Off-highway vehicles
7   A written-off motor vehicle does not include an off-highway vehicle as
defined in the Off-highway Vehicle Act.


Cessation of written-off motor vehicle status
8   A written-off motor vehicle ceases to be a written-off motor vehicle
when

     (a)  a subsisting written-off motor vehicle inspection certificate
for the motor vehicle is filed with the Registrar, or

     (b)  the Director notifies the Registrar that the Director is
satisfied that, even before the damage to the motor vehicle is repaired,
the motor vehicle is safe for operation on a highway.


Reinstatement of written-off motor vehicle status
9   If a subsisting written-off motor vehicle inspection certificate is
filed with the Registrar for a written-off motor vehicle and the inspection
certificate is later revoked under section 27, the motor vehicle becomes a
written-off motor vehicle.


Duty to notify Director
10(1)  This section is made for the purposes of section 58.1 of the Motor

motor vehicle inspection certificate for the motor vehicle, or

     (b)  the person provides the buyer with a written statement advising
that the motor vehicle is a written-off motor vehicle for which there is no
subsisting written-off motor vehicle inspection certificate.


Registering written-off motor vehicles
12   When a person applies to the Registrar or a licence issuer for a
certificate of registration for a written-off motor vehicle, the inspection

the security for that purpose.

(4)  Subsection (3) applies despite the fact that the approval holder or
registration holder may not have actually received the notice referred to
in subsection (2)(a).

(5)  Where the amount of the forfeited security exceeds the amount required
for conservation and reclamation, the Provincial Treasurer shall on the
direction of the Minister pay the excess amount to the approval holder or
registration holder.

the cost of conservation and reclamation, the approval holder or
registration holder  remains liable for the balance.
