Registration

Registration Classes

It is the responsibility of Manitoba Public Insurance, Driver and Vehicle Licensing to ensure that all classes of vehicles under The Highway Traffic Act, The Drivers and Vehicles Act, and the Off-Road Vehicles Act are registered correctly. In order to ensure that vehicles are registered correctly, they are broken down into vehicle classes based on type and use of the vehicle. Commercial vehicles registered under the International Registration Plan (IRP) and Public Service Vehicles (PSV) can be registered at a number of Manitoba Public Insurance locations throughout Winnipeg and Manitoba.

Vehicles registered as Antique Vehicle registration class can be registered at all Manitoba Public Insurance locations except at centres in Swan River and The Pas.

All other vehicles can be registered at any Autopac outlet or various Manitoba Public Insurance locations.
