Step 2 When you register your vehicle

Documents required

The buyer and the seller – or their representatives – must present:

  • their driver's licence or another official photo ID document
  • the vehicle sales contract

Other documents, such as a valid mechanical inspection certificate, may be required depending on the type of vehicle to be registered.

If the vehicle is new

A buyer must also present the Attestation de transaction avec un commerçant and Description du véhicule neuf forms provided by the dealer.

If the vehicle is used

A buyer who purchases a used vehicle from a dealer must also present the Attestation de transaction avec un commerçant form.

If the person registering the vehicle does not have a driver's licence

Phone us to find out what documents to bring when registering the vehicle.

If none of the business's directors can come to the service outlet in person

The person registering the vehicle will have to present the original copy of a document authorizing the person to act on the business’s behalf.

If the vehicle comes from outside Québec

It is considered to be an imported vehicle. In that case, there are other documents that the buyer has to present so that we can verify whether the vehicle is authorized for road use in Québec. To find out more, visit the Registering a vehicle from outside Québec web page.
