As you may be aware, the Ontario Government has extended the validity of many ServiceOntario products, including the Ontario Photo Card, Health Card, and Driver's Licences, untl furthern notice. This measure applies to all products expiring on or after March 1, 2020 and was put in place to reduce unnecessary visits to ServiceOntario locations.
While the extension remains in place, the Ontario Government has now expanded ServiceOntario's online services to make it easier and safer to renew driver's licences from home.
The Ontario Government is temporarily allowing senior drivers aged 80 and above to renew their driver's licences online, without completing a Group Education Session. In addition, drivers who would normally be required to visit a ServiceOntario centre to update their driver's licence photo may now renew online using their current driver's licence photo.
It is strongly encouraged that everyone renew their driver's licence and licence plate stickers online, especially those who need to travel outside Ontario this winter for essential purposes.
For those who choose to renew their licence in person, appointments can be booked online in advance for services at 43 ServiceOntario centres. Please visit Ontario.ca/Appointment for more information or to book an appointment.
