How to Transfer Your Vehicle Registration in Alberta

Transfer Your Vehicle Registration in Alberta

Transferring your vehicle registration in Alberta is a common process if you’re replacing an old vehicle with a new one or if you’ve got a vehicle you’re no longer using. This guide will help you understand how to transfer a vehicle registration.

Understanding Vehicle Registration Transfer

Transferring your vehicle’s registration means you’re moving the registration and license plate from one vehicle to another. This is a necessary process if you’ve purchased a new car. While the process is streamlined and relatively simple, it does require you to have the right documentation.

If your previous vehicle’s registration is valid, you have 14 days to transfer the plate to a new vehicle. Acting within this timeframe is important, or you may risk fines.

Required Documents to Transfer a Vehicle Registration

To transfer your registration to a new vehicle, you’ll need several documents in hand:

  • Proof of ownership: This can be a bill of sale or a lease agreement.
  • Proof of insurance: You must present a current and valid pink card in the same name as your vehicle registration.
  • Photo ID: Valid photo ID such as a passport or a driver’s license is required.
  • New vehicle information statement (NVIS): If you’ve just purchased a new vehicle from a dealership, you’ll need to provide the original NVIS that came with the vehicle.

If your previous vehicle was registered to more than one person, both signatures will be required to transfer the registration.
