The Government of Ontario announced this morning that drivers will now be able to renew their licences online.

Ontario drivers need to renew their licences every five years. Now, eligible drivers who renew online will be able to use their existing licence photos for an additional five-year renewal cycle, meaning they will only need to renew in person every ten years.

When drivers renew their licences online, they can also get licence plate stickers, driver abstracts and other driver and vehicle products in the same transaction.

“With the launch of the new online driver’s licence renewal service, Ontario becomes the first province in Canada to provide drivers with the option to renew their licence online. We are committed to making it easier and more convenient for the people of Ontario to access important government services.” said John Milloy, Minister of Government Services.

The new online driver’s licence renewal service is added to the more than 40 services already offered online. These include renewing licence plate stickers, changing addresses and applying for birth, death or marriage certificates.
