Driver Licensing

Changing your information

Changing your address

When you move within Manitoba you have 15 days to change your address on your vehicle registration and driver’s licence. If you don’t notify us we may refuse your claim if you need to make one.

To change your address, visit any Autopac Agent or Service Centre location in person. They will take a new photograph, update your address information and provide you with new documentation. There is a $10 charge for a replacement driver’s licence, and you will be issued a temporary certificate to carry with you until your new card is received in the mail.

If you’re moving out of Manitoba, you are responsible for following the driver licensing rules of the province, territory or state you’re moving to. Click here for more information on cancelling your Autopac coverage.

Changing your name

When your legal name has changed you have 15 days to update your driver’s licence and vehicle registration. To change your name, visit any Autopac Agent or Service Centre location in person. You must bring with you documentation that shows a connection between your previous name and the new name, such as a marriage certificate, a Certificate of Election of Surname or similar document from the Vital Statistics Agency.

Cancelling a Manitoba Driver’s Licence

To cancel your own Manitoba Driver’s Licence

Visit any Autopac Agent or Service Centre location in person to cancel your driver’s licence.

To cancel a Manitoba Driver’s Licence on someone’s behalf

You may cancel a driver’s licence of a deceased driver if you are the personal/legal representative of the deceased. You must provide a copy of the Death Certificate or an obituary notice.

You may cancel a driver’s licence on behalf of a driver who is under 18 years of age if you are that driver’s parent or legal guardian and if you originally provided consent for the driver when they obtained their license. You will either need to submit a written request to cancel the licence, or the minor driver must provide a co-signature.

For more information on cancelling a driver’s licence on someone’s behalf, please contact an Autopac Agent or Service Centre location.

When you move out of province

If you move to a reciprocal jurisdiction and obtain a new driver’s licence, your Manitoba Driver’s Licence must be surrendered to the new jurisdiction.

Once your new licence (in the new jurisdiction) has been issued, it is still your responsibility to request a driver’s licence cancellation in writing.

Your written request and a photocopy of your new driver’s licence can be sent to:

Manitoba Public Insurance

Basic Autopac Special Services

PO Box 6300

510–234 Donald Street

Winnipeg, MB R3C 4A4

Fax: 204-985-7670

If the jurisdiction you’re moving to does not have a reciprocal agreement with Manitoba, you should include your Manitoba Driver’s Licence with your cancellation letter.
