Can I cancel a temporary registration issued through CARS e-Services?

Yes, but only within 24 hours of issuing the BFS-4 temporary registration.  The 24-hour period starts from the time of issuance and not the day of issuance.  For example, if the permit was issued at 6:00pm on Friday, it can be cancelled through your e-Services account until 5:59pm on Saturday. Please use these steps to cancel a BFS-4 temporary registration on e-Services.

All BFS-4 cancellations after 24 hours, follow this link and follow the process shown. 

Please note: The issuance of a BFS-4 is the last step in the vehicle delivery process.  The BFS-4 permit should not be ordered through e-Services prior to completion of purchase documentation.
