All cars that are normally driven in Saskatchewan need to be registered here. To register a car in Saskatchewan you must be the owner of the car.
You can show you are the owner with a Bill of Sale. The Bill of Sale must include...
You can also register a car that you lease. In this case you will need the lease agreement.
Once you have registered your car you will be given a licence plate that you must securely attach to the rear of your car. It must always be visible. This means that it cannot be covered or be so dirty that the plate number cannot be clearly seen.
When you register your car you are also buying basic insurance. This insurance covers damage to your car. It also covers injuries to people from a car crash you caused and any damage your car causes to another car, person or property. If you are in a car crash that is your fault, you will have to pay a deductible. You must pay this set amount before the insurance will cover the rest of the cost for repairs and other damages.
Registration and basic insurance costs vary. The cost is based on the type of car being registered. Your age, sex or where you live are not factors in determining how much you will pay. You can use Saskatchewan Government Insurance’s rate calculator to find out how much it will cost per year to register your vehicle. You can also purchase extra insurance for added protection and to lower the amount of the deductible you need to pay if you are at-fault. You can pay the full cost when you register your car for the year or set up monthly payments. You can also register your car for less than one year.
