$12 hike to licence plate fee to pay for infrastruture projects

As of Sept. 1 in southern Ontario you’ll pay a $120 for your licence plate renewal — up from $108. The fee is 62 per cent higher than five years ago when you paid $74.

The government says it needs more funds to pay for roads – new ones and maintaining older ones. And additional fees for reinstatements, replacements and commercial permits will follow effective January 1, 2017.

As of September 1, 2016:
The Driver’s Licence Original and Renewal Fee, including the driver licensing fee as part of the Enhanced Driver Licence, will change from $81.50 to $90
Vehicle Licence Validation in Northern Ontario will change from $54 to $60
Vehicle Licence Validation in Southern Ontario will change from $108 to $120.

New fee changes effective January 1, 2017:

The Driver’s Licence Reinstatement Fee after Suspensions and Administrative Monetary Penalty will change from $180 to $198
Driving Instructors Licence Replacement will change from $28 to $31
Oversize/Overweight (O/O) Permit Replacement will change from $28 to $31
Original and Replacement Plate/Permit Fee for Manufacturer motor vehicle and motorcycle and dealer plate will change from $20 to $25
Original and Replacement Plate/Permit Fee for Manufacturer motor vehicle and motorcycle and dealer permit will change from $10 to $32.

Since 2003, Ontario has committed over $25 billion to design, repair and expand provincial highways and bridges across Ontario. The more than 12 million vehicles registered in Ontario will now help pay for the Ontario government’s investment in public infrastructure – about $160 billion over 12 years with projects such as hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit.
