Doug Ford's Government Just Proposed A Price Increase For Driver's License Fees And Ontarians Are Furious - 2019-06-19
Less than a year after freezing price increases, the Ontario government is now currently proposing to raise the price of driver and vehicle fees across Ontario. Under this proposal, these driver fees would be rising at a two percent increase over the next five years. Not surprisingly, this has gotten negative reviews from drivers around the province and Ontarians are furious with this decision.
According to CTV News, this proposal will allow for an annual fee increase of two percent for the next five years that will hike up the prices of 'various driver, vehicle and carrier products and services,". This means that if the proposal is agreed upon, Ontarians could be facing price increases on driver's license renewals, fees associated with taking driver's tests, and other related fees.
According to the proposal, Ontarians could see these increases in fees in less than a month. If this proposal is passed, fees will start to rise for divers on July 1 and continue to rise over the next five years.
