At East Calgary Registry, we make Alberta Licence Plate renewals quick and easy. You have two choices: you can come into our office or renew online. Our office is conveniently open 7 days a week (closed the second Sunday of each month for government system updates). View our hours and location here.
How much does registration cost for an Alberta licence plate?
The cost will depend on the term – for a passenger (non commercial class) vehicle for 12 months, it will be $93. 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.
Can I renew my Alberta licence plate online?
Yes! You can renew online through the Government of Alberta’s online renewal website. You will be asked to designate a Registry Agent. Please choose East Calgary Registry!
Renewing Alberta vehicle registration 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.).
What if I have fines?
If there are any fines on your account which are overdue, you will need to pay off the fines before we can renew your plate. The cost is the original fine cost, plus late fees, plus a $9 service fee per ticket for us to clear them for you. If you need to know the exact amount of your fines, please call the Fines Line at 403-297-2283.
Here's what you need to know before you register a new or pre-owned vehicle which you have purchased.
Renew Your Licence
Have you checked the expiry date on your licence recently? The Government no longer mails out reminders. Be sure your licence is valid.
