Ontario Begins Automatic Licence Plate Renewals

The provincial government is making life more affordable and convenient for drivers.

In 2022, Ontario 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 900,000 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, this 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.
