When you renew online you will need to:

  • Confirm your current mailing address
  • Confirm fees owing and provide insurance information.
  • Make payment with a Visa, MasterCard, Interac Debit Card, or Visa Debit Card
  • Print and/or save renewal confirmation receipt as proof of renewal.

If you choose to renew in person or by mail or fax you will need to provide your insurance company name and policy number on the back side of your registration document. The registered owner must also sign the insurance declaration. We cannot process the registration renewal without this information. Trailers do not require insurance information, but do require the signature of the registered owner on the renewal application.

If you choose to renew in-person, you will also be required to provide valid photo identification.

Please note: If you require a change of address you must make this request in person at a Motor Registration Division office and provide valid proof of your current address, or submit the request, including valid supporting documents, by email at: addresschangemrd@gov.nl.ca.
