Ontario Removes License Plate Sticker Renewal Fees

The Ontario government announced on Feb. 22nd, 2022 (2/22/22) that the license plate renewal fees and sticker fees will end as of March 13th, 2022. This change applies to private passenger vehicles, motorcycles and light-duty trucks. During the pandemic the government has been investigating ways to make the license plate renewal plate process easier and to put more money back into drivers pockets.

Some Ontarian’s will also be eligible for a refund. In order to get the refund drivers need to make sure the address on their license is up to date by March 7th, 2022. If you need to update your address you can do so online here or by visiting Service Ontario. If there are any outstanding tickets or fines they must be paid in full as well to be eligible for the refund.

The refund cheques will be mailed out and are expected to be delivered by the end of April 2022 to all eligible drivers. The Ford government has announced they expect this refund to be delivered to just over 7.5 million vehicle owners. The amount is expected to be the full amount paid for any vehicle in ownership. For most of Ontario that amount is $120. For drivers in Northern Ontario that amount is $60. If you have paid for two years in advance your respective amount will be double in the refund.

License plates will still need to be renewed every one or two years. This is necessary to ensure the proper car insurance is in place for the vehicle. The renewal also picks up any outstanding fines or tickets. However, the renewal process itself will now be free and no sticker will be required. If you need to transfer your vehicle ownership that process remains the same only now you will not need to transfer or get new stickers.

The requirements and renewal fees for snowmobiles, ATVs and heavy commercial vehicles remain unchanged at this time.
