License Plate Sticker Refunds
If you paid renewal fees for your licence plate sticker for an individually owned passenger vehicle, light-duty truck, motorcycle or moped for the period of March 1, 2020 to March 12, 2022, you will receive a refund cheque in the mail starting at the end of March and throughout the month of April.
To get your refund, you must do the following by March 7, 2022:
- check the address on your driver’s licence. If you see:
- your current address, you do not need to update and will receive a cheque in the mail
- the incorrect address, update it now to receive your refund cheque
- pay any defaulted fees, fines or tolls
If you have any questions about your refund, contact ServiceOntario at 1-888-333-0049.
