Driver Licence Renewal Reminders Coming Directly To Your Inbox

McGuinty Government Launches Convenient Online Service

Ontario drivers can now sign up to get email reminders for driver's licence and licence plate sticker renewals.

My Account is a new online service from ServiceOntario that makes it easy to remember when to renew by sending motorists email reminders in advance of renewal dates. The email replaces the paper notice sent by regular mail and could save up to $8 million per year in paper and postage costs if all eligible Ontarians sign up.

The new reminder service is just one of a number of services already offered online, such as renewing licence plate stickers and applying for birth, death or marriage certificates.

This is part of the McGuinty government's plan to make it easier for families to access important government services, when and where they need them.

Quick Facts

  • ServiceOntario offers more than 40 services online.
  • Ontario was the first jurisdiction in North America to establish money-back service guarantees for birth, marriage and death certificates ordered online, and now offers a total of nine online service guarantees.
  • The government meets its online service guarantee for more than 99.5 per cent of transactions.
  • There are about 11 million vehicles registered in Ontario.
