Some changes are coming to vehicle registrations in the Northwest Territories.

The Department of Transportation is doing away with the little sticker that goes on the corner of licence plates.  

Instead, all vehicle registrations will be recorded and monitored electronically. People will also soon have the option to register their vehicles online.  

Steve Loutitt, director of road licensing and safety, says the changes should mean shorter wait times at vehicle licensing offices.

"It will drop them, we're confident of that.  How much it will drop them I would say it's going to be fairly significant. Registration, renewals are the biggest volume of service that we provide," he said. 

People who don't want to use the online option can still go into their local office to register their vehicle.  

The changes begin February 1.
