Your licence plate number can feel like part of your identity, so we understand that you’d want to hold onto it! The good news is that you can transfer a plate registration fairly easily.
If your old vehicle’s registration is currently valid, come into any AMA centre to transfer your registration. When you come in, make sure to bring:
- Your AMA membership card.
- One piece of Government of Alberta-approved photo ID or support document.
- Proof of ownership, such as the original Bill of Sale (pdf), lease agreement, previous vehicle registration or will.
- If you have a brand-new vehicle, we’ll need to see the original New Vehicle Information Statement (NVIS) that you received from your dealer when you bought the vehicle.
- If there is more than one name on either the current registration or the ownership document, we require both signatures on the authorization form.
- Your valid pink card (proof of valid Alberta liability insurance) in the name(s) to appear on the vehicle registration.
- Your odometer reading (optional).
Why Not Also Renew your Vehicle Registration for Another Year?
Depending on your current expiry date, you may have the option to extend the term of your registration. You pay the renewal fee of $84.45 (for a regular passenger license plate), but receive an additional 12 months and save on the transfer fee of $22.45.
