Reinstating Renewal Requirements for Driver and Vehicle Licences

Published on September 02, 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the first priority has been the health and safety of Ontarians. In March 2020, the government acted quickly to extend the validity of driver’s licences, licence plate stickers, and Ontario Photo Cards and health cards to reduce the need for people to visit a ServiceOntario centre, prevent the spread of COVID-19, and provide immediate relief to Ontarians.


Ontario is now reinstating the requirement for people to renew these documents. It’s important that Ontarians have their documents up-to-date for work, access to services and travel, and to keep our roads safe.


Reinstating the requirement to renew will also bring Ontario in line with every other jurisdiction in Canada and the U.S. and keep our economy moving. 


We strongly encourage those who have deferred their renewals – approximately 17 per cent of Ontarians – to renew their documents online at It’s convenient, quick, and safe.


Reinstating renewal requirements also guarantees a level playing field for businesses and fairness for all drivers and vehicle owners in the province.
