What is a Notice of Disposal Form?
In a brief explanation, A notice of disposal is a document you need to complete to inform those who holds the authority (Roads and Maritime) that you have sold your car. This notice of disposal should be submitted to Roads and Maritime immediately after selling or disposing of a vehicle.
The notice of disposal slip is usually contained on the bottom part of your registration papers. If you have lost your registration papers, you don’t need to worry because a notice of disposal is available on Roads and Maritime website and you can download it without a hassle.

Why Is It Important?
As explained, a notice of disposal will act as a form of your confirmation to Roads and Maritimes that you have sold your vehicle. Without a notice of disposal, the authorities wouldn’t know whether the car is still yours or not. This can easily confuse the officers to blame you, instead of the new vehicle’s owner, for the bad driving. In other words, this will help you avoid paying the price for someone else’s bad driving.
Moreover, If you don’t pay, enforcement agencies may send enforcement notices to either the last registered operator, or the new operator on a recorded notice of disposal. However, you would also normally have an opportunity to advise enforcement agencies that you are no longer responsible for the vehicle, usually in the form of a statutory declaration.
