If you have recently bought a new vehicle, you are legally required to have it registered. This law also applies to off road vehicles such as dirt bikes and snowmobiles. At Ardiel Agencies, we have the experienced staff and forms required to guide you through the process.
If a vehicle is to be registered jointly, all parties should be named on the Bill of Sale and be present at the time of registration. If this is not possible, an authorization form is available for the person(s) who are not present to give permission to register the vehicle on their behalf.
All outstanding fines must be paid before we can register your new vehicle.
To renew your registration you need come into the offices of Ardiel Agencies. You will need to bring photo ID together with proof of insurance for the vehicle.
If the original copy of your insurance is unavailable you may contact your insurance company to obtain your insurance information: policy number & expiry date. Alternatively, your insurance agent can fax a copy to our office 403-995-3039.
Government regulations require that all outstanding fines be paid before your registration renewal can be processed.
Alberta is involved in the International Registration Plan, a registration reciprocity agreement among Canadian provinces and US jurisdictions. Rather than obtaining and paying for plates and registration in each jurisdiction, prorate offers the advantage of proportionate licensing in Alberta.
Ardiel Agencies is authorized to collect the amounts specified on Fee Notices, and issue the necessary plates, validation tabs, prorate registration and cab card.
A disabled placard enables those with the greatest need to use parking facilities that have been specially designated. Disabled placards are issued to persons who provide proof of eligibility.
To apply for a placard, an application form must be completed by a physician, occupational therapist or physiotherapist then simply bring the completed form with an item of identification into the offices of Adiel Agencies.
Before buying a used vehicle it may be a good idea to obtain a Vehicle Information Report which will provide the following:
The Vehicle Information Report only shows information from the Alberta Motor Vehicle System. To obtain a report, simply call into Ardiel Agencies with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
In order to move an unregistered vehicle from one location to another within Canada you will need an Intransit Permit. For travel within Alberta, proof of insurance and identification are required for a permit of 3 days maximum duration.
If the vehicle is being moved outside of Alberta, proof of valid insurance and a Bill of Sale are required. The duration of the trip will determine the length of time of the permit up to a maximum of 7 days.
An intransit permit may also be used during vehicle servicing or for test driving purposes.
