For the first time this fall, drivers in Ontario will be dealing with a redesigned driver’s licence.
According to the provincial government, urgent change is needed in order to help combat fraud and identity theft. The last update was 12 years ago.
The new card design will shift from the current mix of blue and green to a look that is largely blue and white with the province’s redesigned trillium logo.
The new licence plates, which were unveiled last week, will be available in February 2020 after the current supply of plates is exhausted.
The province says it has resolved the problem that led to licence plates peeling and flaking and will now guarantee the plates for life.
These plates will remain on both the front and back of vehicles across the province. Those who were afraid having them only at the back of the car and not the front can now breathe a little easy knowing it will be easier to fight crime. -CINEWS
