A number of originally scheduled fees to be increased to come into effect on September 1 have now been frozen, so says the new provincial government.
The move announced by the Progressive Conservatives halts the price increases planned by the previous Liberal government.
What does this mean for drivers?
- A five-year drivers licence renewal fee that was scheduled to increase to $97 but will instead remain $90.
- All A, B, C, D, E, and F road tests fees will remain $96.75 instead of increasing to $100.25.
- Knowledge tests for those same licences will remain $23.25, rather than increasing to $24.
The fee freeze means the government will lose out on $1.6 million in revenue.
