Online Vehicle Registration Renewals Increase
More Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are choosing to renew their automobile registrations online. The Motor Registration Division has reported that in April over 62 per cent of registration renewals were completed electronically.
“This innovative service allows people to register their vehicles in a secure online environment,” said the Honourable Harry Harding, Minister of Government Services. “We are very pleased that so many automobile owners are choosing to use this safe and convenient option.”
Users of the online service also enjoy a 10 per cent discount on renewal versus other methods such as renewing at chartered banks and credit unions, or in person at various Motor Registration Division offices or Government Service Centres.
The online renewal option is another example of how the department continues to streamline its services.
“Since 2007 the department has implemented a new telephone service for the Motor Registration Division, strengthened online services through the addition of a debit card service and added further inspection and enforcement staff,” said Minister Harding. “In addition, activities are underway to co-locate Motor Registration Division offices and Government Service Centres across the province, to enhance the one-stop service experience for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.”
As a reminder, people without Internet access at home can get access by visiting a Canada/Newfoundland and Labrador Community Access Program Site. Individuals interested in using this service can call 1-877-929-1829 toll-free to locate the access centre nearest them. Internet services are also available at all provincial libraries.
