As VHF said, taking 35 hours off work is a lot to ask. Add in an annual vehicle inspection and it isn't worth the hassle for a lot of people.
I'm also not sure the validity of annual (costly) inspections. If it's a late-model car, what's to check? Tire tread is about all you can cheat. I guess you could run with faulty brakes for a bit, but that seems reckless to your own car. Remember, on the whole these cars belong to people as their main ride, they are not cabs or rental cars. Not many people would want to drive a car in lousy shape. Fiscally it's not a good idea.
EDIT: Uber already makes you get your car inspected annually in Montreal, at Canadian Tire or M. Muffler. . Maybe the government wants to add another layer to that. Also car has to be 2008+ and max 350,000km.
To drive with Uber in Montreal, your vehicle must meet the following minimum requirements:
- 4-door vehicle
- A solid roof
- 2008 models or more recent
- Maximum of 350,000 km
To drive with Uber in Montreal, your vehicle must pass an inspection. Get the details here.
