Motor Vehicle Registration Fees

The Government of Prince Edward Island is returning all of the federal carbon levy back to Islanders. As a result, transit fees and vehicle registration fees have been reduced and driver's licenses are now free. For more information on these changes, visit Saving You Money While Helping Environment.
