Remote Area Registrations

The Highway Traffic Act and The Drivers and Vehicles Act allow residents in remote communities to register their vehicles for a special registration charge. To qualify for the special registration charge, applicants must live in remote communities which are not connected to the provincial highways system by a year round all-weather road.

Vehicles which qualify will display special licence plates, which restrict the vehicle to the roads in the community, and between one or more such remote communities. They may not be operated on any provincial highway in Manitoba.
