A driver's licence is made to last four years but payment of fees must be done each year to retain the driving privilege.
Driving with an expired licence is an offence punishable by a fine of $300 to $600. Other fees may be added to the fine provided under the Highway Safety Code (contribution to the IVAC crime victims compensation program, registry fees, etc.). You will have to pass knowledge and road tests if you want to get a licence again after three years or more from the date you no longer hold a valid licence.
There is a charge for late payment, on top of the amount shown on your payment notice.
The SAAQ charges additional fees for each cheque rejected by a financial institution for insufficient funds.
Advise us by phone before the due date shown on your payment notice. Otherwise, fees must be paid.
You will have to pass knowledge and road tests if you want to get a licence again after three years or more from the date you no longer hold a valid licence.
