Gas prices step aside, as the cost to renew your license plate sticker continues its annual rise in Ontario.
The Ministry of Transportation has confirmed the cost of a one-year vehicle license validation will set southern Ontario residents back $120 starting September 1st, up from the current cost of $108.
For people living in northern Ontario, the cost will be $60, up from $54.
The province attributes the rise to the increased cost of maintaining highway infrastructure across Ontario.
Drivers with a birthday after September 1st will have to shell out 60 per cent more cash than they did just five years ago.
The cost of updating licence plates in southern Ontario rose from $74 to $82 in 2012, to $90 in 2013, $98 in 2014, and $108 on the same day last year.
Driver’s licence original and renewal fees will remain at $81.50.
