Cost Of A Driver’s Licence May Be Rising

Been a year since Queen's Park cancelled a planned increase

The cost of a driver’s licence may be going up.

The government last year cancelled an increase – from $90 to $97 – that had left by the former Liberal government.

This proposal talks of two per cent increases every year for five years.

“By doing a two per cent regular increase, the Ministry of Transportation is taking a measured approach to achieving fiscal balance, while providing Ontario residents the ability to predict annual increases, directly tied to inflationary pressures.”

Provincial Transportation Minister Jeff Yurek says the proposed increases have only been posted for feedback – nothing is cast in stone.

They could take effect July 1.
