Register a New Vehicle in Alberta

In Alberta, all vehicles being operated or parked on public roads or property must be registered and insured. The law includes off-road vehicles, such as snowmobiles and dirt bikes. At Registrations Are Us, we can help you register a new vehicle, a used vehicle, an out-of-province vehicle, and we provide registration services for an antique vehicle or motorcycle in Alberta. If you’re unsure of the documents you need or have questions, we can help.

How to register your car in Alberta

If you are registering a brand new vehicle that has never been registered before, you will need:

  • The Bill of Sale or lease documents
  • Your proof of insurance (pink slip)
  • Personal Identification
  • The original New Vehicle Information Statement (NVIS)
  • Parental consent if you are under 18 years old

The first year’s fee will be pro-rated to correspond with your expiry date, which is based on the first initials of your last name. If you buy a used car that was previously registered in Alberta, you do not need the NVIS.

If a vehicle is being registered jointly, all parties should be named on the Bill of Sale and insurance, and all parties should be present. If this is not possible, the absent parties must sign an authorization form that gives their consent to be included in the registration.

Since January 1, 1997, all vehicles that were last registered outside of Alberta must be inspected by an authorized mechanic before being registered within our province. First, bring us your Bill of Sale. We’ll do a search on the vehicle to find out its previous status in the jurisdiction it was last registered in. Depending on that status, you will be required to either have an Out of Province Vehicle Inspection or a Salvage Vehicle Inspection done.

We will provide you with a Request for Inspection form that you must take to the mechanic before he can start to inspect your vehicle. Please note that not all mechanics in Alberta are authorized to perform these inspections. We can provide a list of some Alberta-authorized mechanics for your convenience.

After the inspection is completed, you must return to us the form given to you by the mechanic. This inspection form is only valid for 14 days from the date of issue. If you miss this deadline, you will have to start the process all over again. Then the vehicle can be registered, and the record from the previous province closed out.

If your vehicle is 25 years old or more, you may want register it as an antique. With this registration, you can use your antique in exhibitions and club meets and also going to and from those events. You can also drive it to and from a service station for maintenance.

You cannot use an antique vehicle for general transportation unless it is also registered as a regular vehicle (dual registration). To register your antique vehicle, you will be asked for the documents required in registering a regular vehicle.

If you’ve lost your vehicle registration documents, you’ll need to take steps to obtain replacements. Typically, this involves visiting Registrations Are Us or applying online to request duplicate documents. You’ll need to provide identification, vehicle information, and potentially pay a fee for the replacement documents. It’s important to replace lost documents promptly to ensure that you have the necessary proof of registration while driving.

Failing to register your vehicle in Alberta can have legal and financial consequences. Vehicle registration is a legal requirement that demonstrates ownership and ensures compliance with local regulations. If you don’t register your vehicle, you could face penalties, fines, and potential legal actions. Additionally, an unregistered vehicle might not be covered by insurance, making it illegal to operate on public roads. Driving an unregistered vehicle can result in traffic violations and further fines.
