Driving Instructor Licence Application Fee Increases (O.R. 173/12 amending O.R.473/07)
Regulation - Minister
Bill or Act:
Highway Traffic Act
Summary of Decision:
The regulation was filed on June 22, 2012. The regulatory amendments will introduce increases to driving instructor licence application fees effective September 1, 2013.
Summary of Proposal:
The costs of maintaining roads, bridges and highways have risen over time. Most driver and vehicle fees, however, have not changed in over 15 years. This driving instructor licence application fee increase is part of a broader government initiative to introduce modest and gradual increases to driver?s licence and testing fees, as well as vehicle validation fees and permits. The revenue generated from the fees will help support the maintenance of Ontario's transportation infrastructure and ensure that provincial roads and bridges are in good repair and safe for Ontarians.
The fee increases, including the effective dates, were publicly announced by the government on March 13, 2012, and were also addressed in the 2012 Ontario Budget, tabled on March 27, 2012.
