The MOT does not govern the cost of either inspections or any repairs required usually. Your best bet is shop around/call shops around your area to compare prices.
As for places that are not strict...well unless your buddy owns a shop it'll be hard to get them to turn a blind eye for you.

2nd Request is, Do you know any places that are not very strict in the safety certification that can help me out?

Thanks. So far I've found a place for $75. If you know any place lower than that then let me know please.

$75 is good, I don't know if you can get any lower especially if you're looking for them to be "lenient"

$75 is the going rate for a legit.

$450-$500 for a non-legit. Don't PM me cause I won't forward the info.

You're getting ripped for 450-500 for an "altered" one. More like ~200...same price as an "altered" e-test.

^ that. However the guy is going to tell you to eff off if it's less an $200 cash in said envelope.

However the etests are going be harder fudge when the new rules comes in. Odb2 ports and being under a random eye via webcam with MTO.

For cheap and illegitimate the only place that might challenge Scarborough is Brampton. Otherwise you may have to resort to owning and operating your vehicle legitimately.

Whoa 450 is too much lol. I have done it before for $120 but that friend is overseas right now so I am looking for another person to get it done this month.
I am either looking for a regular test for under $75 OR regular test that can "Help me out" for under $300.
I already have e-test done for the car, so dont worry about that.

Especially one that has a shipping container or trailer as an office.
But it has to have wood panels on the inside.

Bring a brown envelope and tell them your proposition... they'll help you out!

Yes it will be harder to get an altered e-test but for a legit e-test it will be easier because they wont check "NO ppm" (the reason most cars fail e-tests)

Why would anyone want your uncertified car sharing the road?

Get it fixed or a get a Metropass.

Because certain things are just silly for the car to fail safety such as:

Cracked taillight lens
Driver side window not working
Muffler rusted
Crack in windshield

So think about how many cars on the road already have these "issues" and driven daily.

Exactly. Thanks for clearing that up.

I have really small cracks on the windshield, smaller than a dime and maybe some other minor issues. Brakes and everything else are brand new.

Non of those are silly things and every three years they have to consider getting it fixed. Seriously is the OP too broke to drive? How do they afford auto insurance, it's not exactly cheap.

I remember driving before they pulled oil burning scrap off the road. Although the drivers seems to be getting worse at least the cars are in better shape.
