Ontario Launches Free Online Driver's Licence Check Service

Ministry of Transportation

Ontario's government is making it easier for people and businesses to check the status of an Ontario driver's licence by eliminating the $2 fee and modernizing the online Driver's Licence Check service.

The improvements to the online service will make it easier to use, including the ability to easily check a driver's licence by scanning the card on a mobile device. The changes will also reduce burden on businesses by expanding the number of licence checks entered at one time from nine to 100.
