The Government of Alberta no longer mails out renewal notifications. Just come into Registries Plus with your previous registration, valid insurance (digital or paper copy is fine) and valid government-issued photo ID. Be sure to sign up for an automatic email or text renewal reminder.
What if I don’t have my previous registration papers?
Don’t have the previous registration certificate? No problem – if the vehicle is registered in your name, we can use your Driver’s Licence to access your motor vehicle file. Don’t forget to bring proof of insurance.
Renewing for Someone Else
If you want to renew someone else’s registration, we can do it as long as you have proof of insurance, a digital or paper copy of the registration, and your driver’s licence. If the registration has been expired for three months or longer, the owner of the vehicle will need to provide you with a Vehicle Authorization Form. Please note that you will not be able to make any changes to the account (address, etc.).
How much does registration cost?
The cost will depend on the term – for a passenger (non commercial class) vehicle for 12 months, it will be $84.45. If you are registering for less or more than the 12 month term, the cost will be prorated. To find out which month your personal or company licence plate will expire, refer to the Registration Month Expiry Chart. Call us at 403 272-5513 to find out the exact cost.
If there are any changes to be made to the account (i.e. address, phone, lease status etc.), the account holder must be present in the office to sign for the changes.
Here's what you need to know before you register a new or pre-owned vehicle which you have purchased.
Have you checked the expiry date on your licence recently? The Government no longer mails out reminders. Be sure your licence is valid.
