Storing a Vehicle

Storing a vehicle means removing it from road use for licensing at a later time. You can request to store a vehicle on the same day that you remove it from the road, or in advance.

Before you start

Have on hand the most recent registration certificate for the vehicle to be stored.

Who can use this online service?

  • Individuals who want to store their vehicle.
  • Individuals who wish to store a vehicle registered under more than one name (co-ownership or co-leasing).

Important information

  • Leave the licence plate on the stored vehicle.
  • It is prohibited to park a stored vehicle on a public road.

No refund is given for storing:

  • a motorcycle after September 30
  • a snowmobile after March 31

If you want to license a stored vehicle for road use and store another one on the same day

To avoid having to pay registration fees twice for the same month, follow these steps:

Step 1 – Store the first vehicle.

Step 2 – License the second vehicle for road use and pay the registration fee until your expiry month.
