Driver and vehicle licence fee increases come into effect on September 1, 2015 in order to help maintain Ontario’s road safety, support key services and improve crucial transportation infrastructure.
Fees for driver licences, renewals, replacements and commercial permits are among those increasing.
These changes support the recommendations of the Commission on the Reform of Ontario’s Public Services to cover the rising costs of maintaining provincial roads, bridges and highways, enhance cost recovery for the delivery of driver and vehicle licensing services, and to support quality public services Ontarians rely on every day.
- The Ontario government has committed over $19 billion since 2003 to design, repair and expand provincial highways and bridges across Ontario.
- There are about 12.1 million vehicles registered in Ontario.
- Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in the province’s history — more than $130 billion over 10 years – which will support more than 110,000 jobs per year on average, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals.
