Vehicle Registration Renewals
Online renewals may not be available for all types and classes of vehicles. Gold Key Registry reserves the right to decline to provide online vehicle registration renewal for any reason. If your vehicle registration is not renewable online, you will need to visit a registry agent to have your registration renewed.
The information you provide to Gold Key Registry to facilitate the renewal of your vehicle’s registration must match the current information applicable to that vehicle in the Motor Vehicle System. If any of the applicable information has changed (for example, your address, name, or vehicle) you will not be able to use the Services without first visiting a registry agent for help.
Fees & Refunds
When you renew your vehicle registration online, in addition to the registration renewal fees charged by your registry agent (the “Renewal Fees”), you will be charged: (i) a processing fee of $7 for each vehicle renewal (the “Technology Fee” or “Processing Fee”); and (ii) if applicable, 4% of any outstanding unpaid fines and traffic conviction fees (the “Outstanding Fines”, and together with the Renewal Fees and the Technology Fee, the “Fees”).
Upon your payment of Fees, the following refund policies apply:
i) Renewal Fees refunds are at the discretion of the applicable registry agent, until your vehicle registration renewal has been sent to the Government of Alberta for finalization, at which point Renewal Fees are non-refundable.
ii) The Technology Fee or Processing Fee is non-refundable.
iii) Outstanding Fines are non-refundable.
