Expired Ontario Plate Stickers & Driver's Licences Officially Need To Be Renewed Again

Procrastinating drivers, beware! The provincial government announced on Wednesday that it's officially bringing back its renewal requirements for expired Ontario licence plate stickers, driver's licences, and health cards.

The government had previously extended the validity of the documents back in March 2020 to reduce the number of people visiting ServiceOntario centres and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Now, residents will have to get their driver's licences, cards and plate stickers renewed by February 28, 2022.

On top of this, "novice licence holders," including those who currently have their G1 or G2, will have until December 31, 2022, to upgrade their licence.*

"It's critical that drivers and vehicle owners have up-to-date documents for work, access to services and travel, and to keep our roads safe. I strongly encourage those who have deferred their renewals – approximately 17 per cent of Ontarians – to plan ahead and renew their documents online," Caroline Mulroney, minister of transportation, said in a press release.

Anyone looking to renew their provincial documents in the near future is encouraged to use ServiceOntario's online option. The government has announced that it has temporarily waived the need for residents to renew their licences in person.
