Ontario Freezing More Driver and Vehicle Fees

The Ontario Government says it is taking another step to make life more affordable for taxpayers and businesses by putting a stop to driver and vehicle fees that were set to increase today on January 1, 2019.

This is the second round of driver and vehicle fee increases that the Ontario Government has cancelled. In September, fees for driver’s licences and road and knowledge tests were frozen.

“Families and businesses alike will benefit from the freeze on fees. We’re leaving money in people’s pockets, so they can spend it on the things that really matter to them.”

Jeff Yurek, Minister of Transportation

“Today’s announcement is more proof that Ontario is open for business,” Yurek said.

The following fees are being frozen to directly benefit Ontario drivers, vehicle owners, farmers and businesses:
