WINNIPEG, Man. – Highways and Government Services Minister Steve Ashton has announced that the fee for a Manitoba driver’s licence will increase $2 to offset increased program and administrative costs.

The annual fee for driver’s licences being issued or renewed will increase from $13 to $15.

Drivers with July 2000 birthdays will be the first affected by this change.

“This fee has not increased in 10 years,” said Ashton. “Over the years the department’s revenues simply have not kept up with our costs for driver licensing. This increase will defray the increased costs of public safety programs and services that we deliver to Manitoba drivers.”

New licences or annual renewals currently cost $13. n
