What Information Can I Get From an Alberta Vehicle Information Report?

If you want to learn about the vehicle’s history, the Alberta Vehicle Information Report (VIR) is the report you want before you buy or sell a vehicle previously registered in Alberta. With a VIR you can find out whether there’s a lien on the vehicle (no details provided), the odometer reading (if reported), and the vehicle registration history (for Alberta cars only).

You can buy an Alberta Vehicle Information Report for $24.55 (GST included).

If the vehicle identification number (VIN) provided is incorrect, or if the vehicle has never been registered in Alberta, you will be charged for the VIR even though you will not obtain results.
