In Newfoundland and Labrador, licence plates usually remain on the vehicle and registration is transferred between owners, with the issuance of new licence plates for new vehicles. The exceptions are veterans`, firefighters` and radio amateurs` plates. Quebec has a similar pattern. Prefixed “X” plates, followed by five or six digits, can be used for any vehicle that is part of a dealer`s inventory. Most validation stickers are either serialized (with the serial number registered on the registration) or printed at the time of registration or extension by a special printer bearing the vehicle`s license plate, in order to avoid fraudulent use of stickers, as the sticker is only valid for the license plate for which it was intended. On April 1, 1981, British Columbia, along with Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick, implemented the Canadian Vehicle Registration Agreement (Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland followed on April 1, 1982). At that time, the CAVR was a registration agreement aimed at reducing and making fairer the taxation of charges imposed by participating provinces in the transportation industry and increasing the efficiency of the use of devices. The official vehicle for the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia does not have a licence plate and, instead, a coat of arms marked with British Columbia is placed on the licence plate. The proposed amendments would impact commercial vehicles from new West Partnership jurisdictions, which include British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. The amendments will come into force on January 1, 2018. Reciprocity is limited to a segment of vehicles, including those used for the transport of goods, having two axles and having a total permissible weight of less than 11 794 kilograms. This could include cube carts, delivery vehicles, and craft vehicles used by electricians, carpenters, and welders. License plates are often referred to as license plates (drivers are licensed, vehicles are registered), but the term “license plate” is common in informal use.
On most license plates is a small sticker indicating the month and year of renewal of the license plate that the driver is stuck to the license plates. Prior to June 14, 2019, license plates were officially mentioned in New Brunswick.  Vehicles owned by the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of Defence are also specially paved and permitted to operate on all highways and roads. . . .
