Vehicle Registration Renewal

WHAT IS a vehicle registration renewal?

In Alberta, vehicle registration renewal must be done annually. The Alberta Government sends out a Vehicle Registration Renewal notice to your registered address about two months before your registration becomes due (the due date is the last day of the month determined by the first letter of your last name – see Vehicle Registration).

If you do not receive your renewal notice in the mail, you are still required by law to renew your vehicle registration. When you come into Richmond Road Registry to renew your vehicle, we will give you new stickers to put on your Alberta vehicle licence plate which are valid for one year.


Sign up for an email or text reminder and you’ll be notified before your vehicle registration, ID card or driver’s licence expires.

This Option Pay online renewal notification service is free and you can unsubscribe at any time. Please have your Alberta Driver Licence or Alberta Identification and Vehicle Registration in front of you. Click the image below:
