If your heavy commercial vehicle licence plate sticker was expired for one month or more at any point from March 1, 2020, to December 31, 2021, we contacted you by mail to pay outstanding renewal fees.

To provide financial relief to owners of heavy commercial vehicles, including buses and farm vehicles, we offered payment plan options and exemptions for vehicles that were not operating.

Applications to apply for a payment plan or exemption opened on February 17, 2022 and closed on December 31, 2022.

Estimate your renewal fees using the validation fee calculator.

If you applied to the program

If you applied for the program before the application deadline and still owe fees, you will receive invoices in the mail according to the payment schedule you selected.

The invoices will include information about payment deadlines. 

Drivers who did not enroll

If you did not enroll in the program, you will receive an invoice for unpaid fees owed from the covid-19 extension period (March 1, 2020 to December 31, 2021).

Payment will be due within 30 days from the date the invoice was printed. Instructions for how to make payments will be included.  Payments cannot be made at ServiceOntario. 

If you have received a letter from the Ministry of Transportation stating you owe fees, it means that there are still fees owing from the COVID-19 extension period, even if you have recently updated your licence plate sticker at a ServiceOntario. 

International Registration Plan (IRP) carriers

Carriers who are registered in the International Registration Plan had the opportunity to access the Deferred Payment Plan between September 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.

If you applied for the Deferred Payment Plan you will have received an invoice by mail with instructions about how and when to make payments in early 2022.
