How Do I Cancel My Vehicle Registration?

You can cancel your vehicle registration in person at any AMA centre. When you come in, there are a few things you will need to bring with you:

If the vehicle registration is in two names, both signatures are needed to cancel the registration. There is a $8.40 fee for cancelling a vehicle registration. For more information, call toll-free 1-866-989-6370.

Why Return Your Licence Plate?

While that collection of licence plates hanging in your garage may make a great design statement, they can also be more work than they’re worth. That’s because licence plates that are not returned to a registry agent stay registered in the owner’s name forever. Yikes. That means any fines or investigations about the licence plate will always start with you — whether you’re the owner or co-owner — and even if you’ve misplaced the plate.

For safety, and to save yourself from headaches down the road, consider returning a plate you will no longer be using for cancellation.
