Pay registration in person

To avoid a late fee, make sure you pay on or before the due date listed on your registration notice. If your payment is received after the due date, your next registration renewal date may be adjusted to allow for the late fee.

It's important that your registration remains current as it is an offence to drive an unregistered vehicle.

Some vehicles, such as heavy vehicles or passenger transport vehicles, may require a certificate of inspection to be provided before you can renew. Your registration notice will advise you if this is needed.
