Driver's license fees to increase July 2, 2017
June 30, 2017
On June 22, it was announced that the Liberals have quietly implemented a regulation that will make drivers’ license tests more expensive starting on Canada Day. This adds to the burden of other fee hikes this government has saddled drivers with over the past few years.
Everyone writing driving exams, including first-time drivers hoping to get a G1 license, will find themselves spending more, as this fee will increase to $23.25 on July 1. This represents a roughly 133 percent fee hike since Kathleen Wynne became Premier in 2013.
On top of that, the cost of drivers’ road tests for Class A through F licences will increase to $96.75, which represents a 29 percent increase since 2013. This fee hike will affect truck drivers, school bus drivers, ambulance drivers and many others.
Last September, the Wynne Liberals jacked up vehicle sticker renewal fees for licence plates to $120, which is 33 percent higher than in 2013.
