Province Offers Online Driver’s Licence Renewal

September 25, 2013

Ontario Making it Easier to Access Important Government Services

Ontario is now allowing drivers to renew their licences online ­– the first province in Canada to do so.Ontario drivers need to renew their licences every five years.  Now, eligible drivers who renew online at 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.

Offering more online services is part of the Ontario government’s plan to help people in their everyday lives and make it easier for them to access important government services, when and where they need them.


  • 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.
  • ServiceOntario processed more than 1.6 million driver’s licence renewal transactions last year.
  • Drivers can now use Interac® Online, in addition to major credit cards, to pay online.
  • ServiceOntario meets its online service guarantee for more than 99 per cent of transactions.



“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.”
— John Milloy, Minister of Government Services
