Payment methods

At our service outlets, we accept payment:

  • in cash
  • by Interac (debit card)—not available in some service outlets
  • by one or more pre-authorized debits (a cheque specimen must be provided)
  • by cheque or money order

Payment by credit card is not accepted.

Payment of the QST

You must pay the QST when you register your vehicle, even in the case of a used snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. The SAAQ collects the QST, which is calculated on the agreed sale price or the vehicle’s estimated value, whichever is higher.

You do not have to pay the GST, however, because the sale is between individuals.

Additional fee for trail maintenance

In addition to the annual registration fee, you must pay an additional charge that will be used to maintain Québec's network of snowmobile and all-terrain vehicle trails.
