What Documents Do I Need to Register My Vehicle?

To register a newly acquired vehicle, you need a completed Bill of Sale, a current Certificate of Inspection, and the Transfer of Ownership (TOD) document. Manitoba Safeties are valid for one year, so it doesn’t always need to be a new safety, but it needs to be current. The TOD is not a requirement for registration anymore; however, it is a good idea to have it, as it makes the registration process go faster and you can confirm ownership. 

Can I Change My Vehicle Insurance over the Phone?

Can You Take Pictures for Passport or PAL?
