Moving to prince Edward Island? How To Change Your Registration And Driver’s License

Welcome to Prince Edward Island, we are so glad that you decided to relocate to our wonderful province. As a local Insurance Broker we are often asked about getting your vehicle registered and obtaining a Prince Edward Island Driver’s license. 

“BEFORE YOU GO TO ACCESS PEI LOCATION, BE SURE TO SPEAK WITH YOUR BROKER TO ENSURE THAT YOU WILL HAVE AUTO INSURANCE COVERAGE”

Picture

We have prepared this post to provide you with the necessary steps in obtaining these important documents, while ensuring that you do not spend more time than is required at the local DMV. 

What should you bring? In speaking with one of the staff of the Access PEI Team they advised that you should have the following information with you:

  • Valid photo driver’s license from home jurisdiction.
  • TWO documents that show current address in PEI – phone, electric bills, rental agreement, mortgage papers.

Before you go to the Access PEI location, be sure to speak with your broker to ensure that you will have Auto Insurance Coverage the day you plan on changing the registration of the vehicle. At Higgins Insurance we can take care of this for you by getting your policy prepared in advance of your arrival to Prince Edward Island. Then, it is as simple as letting us know what day you will be going to the DMV, and confirming that you have a copy of your “Pink Card”.

The challenges people and families face when they move to a new province can be overwhelming. This white paper was written to help you navigate the governmental processes, and hopefully provide you some peace of mind. We would encourage you to call your local Access PEI office prior to going to the office should you have any further questions. They can be reached at 1-888-762-8600.


Once you are at the Access PEI Office you will need to:  

Complete the application for your Prince Edward Island Driver’s license. This must be done in person at the local Access PEI Office. Upon completion of the application you will need to surrender your old driver’s license to Access PEI.

Change the registration of the vehicle(s) to the province of Prince Edward Island. The application can be completed prior to your arrival, and a link is below for your convenience.

As mentioned earlier, you MUST display proof of insurance for your vehicle in Prince Edward Island. A fax copy, digital copy or hard copy will satisfy the Agent at Access PEI.

For Payment – Visa, Master Card, Debit or Cash are all accepted.
