Proper Registration For an Alberta Vehicle

When you’re cruising around the province in your brand new vehicle, there’s one vital task that you must take care of. Proper registration for your Alberta vehicle is essential for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that it validates your ownership of the car and that you’ve paid all required taxes and fees. Without it, you could be at risk of fines and even the loss of your car.

The good news is that the process of registering your vehicle in Alberta is relatively simple when you understand what steps are involved. This article will guide you through the process, from start to finish, ensuring that your vehicle is properly registered and ready for the road.

You’ll Need Proof of Ownership

Proof of ownership is an essential part of the registration process, and can be provided in the form of a bill of sale, lease agreement, letter of administration, probated will, or a court order. In addition to this, you’ll need valid insurance in the name of the person who is requesting the registration.

Once you’ve completed all of the necessary steps, you’ll be issued a registration and license plates for your vehicle. This document is a vital piece of evidence that you own the vehicle, and should be kept in the vehicle at all times to prove this. It also serves as validation that you’ve paid all applicable taxes and fees, and is a deterrent against theft of the vehicle.

If you’re bringing a car into Alberta from another province, there may be additional inspection requirements. If the vehicle is new and not already registered in Canada, or if it’s coming from British Columbia, Saskatchewan or Manitoba, there may be an exemption for the inspection requirement. You should always check with your local registry for more information.

Whether you’re registering a new vehicle, or renewing an existing registration, the process can be easily confusing when you’re not familiar with it. To help make sure you’re prepared, and to avoid the stress of a potential ticket, we recommend signing up for a renewal reminder from your preferred registry. This service will send you a notification via email or text at the beginning of your renewal month.
