If you are replacing a vehicle or simply have one that is no longer in use, you can transfer the license plate from your previous vehicle to the vehicle you will now be using.


If your vehicle registration is currently valid, you have 14 days to transfer the plate. Visit us in person to learn about transferring your registration.

What documents you need to transfer vehicle registration


  • Proof of ownership, such as Bill of sale or Lease agreement (if vehicle is leased)
  • Previous vehicle registration (if available)
  • Proof of valid Alberta liability insurance (current pink card in the name(s) to appear on the vehicle registrations)
  • Alberta Photo ID
  • If there is more than one name on either the current registration or the ownership document, both signatures will be required
  • If you have a brand new vehicle, we require the original New Vehicle Information Statement (NVIS) that you received from your dealer when you purchased the vehicle. A faxed or photocopied document is not acceptable
  • Will (if changing registration to the estate of the deceased)
  • Your odometer reading (optional)
