Inquiry: Hi there, My friend received a seat belt ticket 2 years ago and still hasn’t paid it. How can he pay this ticket and is he able to take a G2 road test with this ticket’s existence?
Response: When a ticket goes beyond it’s payment due date, the MTO suspends the driver’s licence for the unpaid fine. Having a licence suspension on the driving history may cost your friend significantly more money in increased insurance costs than having just paid the original ticket. By attending a Provincial Offences Court, your friend can provide their driver’s licence number to a court clerk to track down the current amount owing to the Court. Once the fine has been paid, approximately one week later they can apply for a reinstatement of their licence at the MTO (about a $150 cost).
