Registering a Vehicle

Before registration

The vehicle cannot be registered…

If the buyer or the seller has an unpaid fine for an offence under the Highway Safety Code or under a municipal traffic or parking bylaw.

The Bureau des infractions et amendes and the municipal courts are responsible for collecting fines. You cannot pay a fine at an SAAQ service outlet.

To check whether the vehicle can be registered, you can use our online service. You will be charged a fee for this service.

If the motorcycle is not authorized for road use or has been stored for one year or longer

It cannot be re-authorized for road use until it has passed a mechanical inspection carried out by a certified business and a valid mechanical inspection certificate has been issued.
