Correcting an Application Guide

Last modified on February 02, 2024


PREPARE TO CORRECT THE APPLICATION

It is recommended that you have a copy of the current title to ensure you know the information it contains. Order a copy of the title for a fee before starting the application.

To file a corrective declaration, you will need the following information:

1.1 The downloaded copy of the original application. You may need to review the previously submitted application to understand where the problem is on the form and what needs to be corrected.
1.2 The "Action Required" email that includes a link to access and correct the previously submitted application. The LTSA will send you an email describing the problem and how to fix it. The email includes a date to complete the correction and a link to withdraw the application if you choose not to correct it.
1.3 BC Services Card app. You must login with the same BC Services Card app that was used to submit the application being corrected. The BC Services Card app is used to verify the identity of the applicant and to sign the online corrective declaration.
