Province extending validation of drivers licences, photo ID, health cards and more

In an effort to reduce person to person contact

Don’t worry about that trip to Service Ontario.

The Ontario government has announced that extra time to validate drivers products, services and health cards.

It’s in effort to minimize the need for in-person visits to ServiceOntario, International Registration Plan offices and DriveTest centres during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This includes extensions for driver licences, licence plate validation, Ontario Photo Cards, and Commercial Vehicle Operator Registration certificates, among others.

If your health card expires you will still be provided access to health services.

In addition, The Ministry of Transportation is also automatically extending the due dates for medical or vision reports.

People are encouraged to complete transactions online or use the extended validation period, and to follow the advice of our medical professions and stay at home.
