What to Do in the Event of Death

Transfer of Ownership of a Vehicle to an heir

If you are the liquidator of a succession, transferring vehicle ownership to a new owner is one of your duties. You must go to a Société de l'assurance automobile (SAAQ) service outlet and bring with you the duly completed Declaration by the liquidator of the succession form. 

The new owner must also provide the following documents:

  • His or her driver's licence;
  • If the new owner does not have a file with the SAAQ, the original of his or her birth certificate, showing the names of the new owner's father and mother.
