Auto Fund fees changing effective Jan. 1, 2017
Dec. 20, 2016
SGI is changing a number of Auto Fund fees to better reflect the costs of delivering the services.
Administrative fees for services such as driver testing, driver licensing, appeals and vehicle inspections have not been updated in more than 10 years. Fees are changing so that costs are primarily being covered by customers using the service or completing the transaction, instead of being subsidized by all vehicle owners.
This moves fees further towards a cost-recovery model, but increases will be capped at $75/fee to limit any financial hardship on customers. Most fee changes will be implemented Jan. 1, 2017, pending regulatory approval.
A list of fees and the associated changes can be found in the attached media backgrounder (pdf, 49 kb).
The Auto Fund is self-sustaining, and operates on a break-even basis over time. It is not profit-generating.
