Ontario Begins Automatic Licence Plate Renewals

  • Our government is making life more affordable and convenient for drivers.
  • In 2022, we eliminated licence plate sticker fees for passenger vehicles, saving drivers $120 a year for every car they own.
  • Now, we’re saving vehicle owners more than 900 hours every year by becoming the first jurisdiction in North America to introduce automatic licence plate renewals.
  • Starting July 1st, licence plates for passenger vehicles, light-duty trucks, motorcycles and mopeds will renew automatically 90 days before expiry if the vehicle owner has valid insurance and no outstanding fines or tolls.
  • If a licence plate cannot be renewed automatically, the vehicle owner will be notified and required to manually renew online or in person at ServiceOntario.
  • In May, our government passed the Get It Done Act enabling the transition to automatic renewal of licence plates, banning new tolls on provincial highways and giving Ontario voters a veto over any future provincial carbon tax.
