To cancel your vehicle registration, go to a registry agent and fill out the Licence Plate / Parking Placard Cancellation form (PDF, 180 KB). You will need to bring:

You can also find a registry agent and mail them the following:

  • a written request signed by all registrants shown on the registration certificate
  • a photocopy of your driver’s licence
  • your current address, so the refund can be mailed to you
  • a written verification issued by the jurisdiction you are surrendering your plate to
    • if you are outside of Alberta, and the jurisdiction doesn’t take your plate, mail it with your request
  • the registry agent service fee

A $10.00 (+GST) cancellation fee will be deducted from the refund.

If you are eligible for a refund, you will receive a cheque in the mail in approximately 4-6 weeks.

If you move to another province and exchange your licence plate, you can send a letter to a registry agent to cancel your registration and have the refund mailed to you.
