Armoured Vehicles

Vehicles manufactured or adapted to protect their occupants from explosions and gunshots are considered armoured vehicles. Under British Columbia’s Armoured Vehicle and After-Market Compartment Control Act and Regulation, you must have a permit to operate an armoured vehicle.

A business that operates an armoured vehicle without a permit could face a fine up to $100,000. An individual who operates one without a permit could face a fine up to $10,000 and six months in jail. Additional fines can also be issued under the Offence Act.

Under the Armoured Vehicle and After-Market Compartment Control Act, it is also illegal to own, operate or use a vehicle that contains a concealed compartment that was installed after the vehicle was made.
