Can I Register My Vehicle in Alberta Without a Driver’s Licence?

registering vehicle information

Did you just recently buy a vehicle but don’t yet have a valid driver’s licence? Are you wondering if you can you register your car in Alberta? The answer is yes. You can indeed register your vehicle in Alberta even if you don’t have a driver’s licence. However, there are several documents you must provide. Here’s what you need to know.

Required Documents

To register a vehicle in Alberta, you must provide a few essential documents. Here’s an overview of what you need:

  • Proof of ownership. This can be in the form of a bill of sale, lease agreement, gift letter or will.

  • Proof of valid insurance. You must provide proof of insurance for your vehicle. The “pink card” must bear the names on the vehicle registration, vehicle information, issue and expiry date.

  • Proof of identification. While you don’t need a driver’s licence to register a vehicle, you must still provide valid identification. Acceptable forms of identification include a valid passport, a permanent residency card or a Canadian citizenship card.

  • Vehicle information. You must provide the necessary information about the vehicle you’re registering, including the make, model, year and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Once you’ve gathered these required documents, you can visit an authorized Alberta registry agent to complete the registration process. Passenger, motorcycle and off-highway vehicle registrations are issued for a minimum of one year to a maximum of two years.
