(ONTARIO) – Ontario’s Government for the People took the latest step to provide immediate relief for taxpayers and make life more affordable for Ontarians.
Today, Premier Doug Ford and Minister of Transportation John Yakabuski announced that Ontario is freezing a number of driver fees that were set to increase on September 1, 2018.
“People are fed up with paying more and more every time they need to renew their licence or take a driving test,” said Premier Ford. “This will make life more affordable for drivers right across the province. This is the latest example of our government putting money back where it belongs — in the pockets of hard-working Ontarians.”
The following fees are being frozen to directly benefit Ontario drivers and businesses:
- Road and knowledge tests for all driver’s licence classes.
- Fees to get and renew driver’s licences
This decision is part of the Ford government’s commitment to putting people first.
