SUBSTITUTE VEHICLE:
An owner of a BC-licensed and insured vehicle may transfer the number plates to a newly-purchased BC vehicle and operate the vehicle for a maximum
period of 10 days from purchase date provided ALL of the following conditions are met:

commercial vehicle); AND
the newly purchased vehicle is a BC registered vehicle or is a new vehicle purchased from a BC registered dealer; AND
title or interest in the original vehicle has been transferred.
During the 10-day period the operator must carry all the following documents, and produce to a Peace Officer upon request:
