I did this today. Told the woman the number on my old plate had a hex on it. Saved 40$.

So that's why I wasn't charged the $60 when I got plates for the benz... I thought the woman just forgot.

Anyone know if this still works? I have to renew my stickers this week.

If you were to pay for 2 years of registration, would you in fact be saving $80 per car?

I have mention this before in another thread, but not as a way to get around paying the sticker. Although I don't live anywhere near Toronto, I was able to only pay for my plate when I got my car running last year. It would have cost more if I had to transfer my plate, and renew the sticker, so I got a new plate. As far as I know, if the clerk is nice enough, you should be able to give them an excuse, as to why you need a new plate, and then, you save money. This should still work.

only if you're renewing two cars for one year.

You save 40$ per year that you do this. This means you can't renew for two years (the second year's renewal will include PVT).

Do it one year at a time.

"However, if you also purchase an advance renewal of your vehicle registration at the same
time as you purchase your plate, then the renewal will trigger the appropriate PVT amount"

Well that answers my question, so you'd have to do this every year.

Edit: Ahh the Propie got it before me. Where the f are you man?

In July I managed to get 2 years at once without paying PVT on either. She asked if I wanted 1 year or 2, so I asked what the price difference would be. Once I realized she wasn't adding the $60 for the 2nd I calmly said "2 years please."

They don't ask you to bring the old plates back? My dad called to ask what the price would be with new plates and they told him he has to bring in the old plates, $20 for plates, $74 regular, $60 PVT, lol... But I'm sure it will work when he or I go in to do it.

how does this one year sticker work? if you get the one year sticker, are you good up to your birthday? What if you get the new plates, say, 1 or 2 months before your birthday? When are they up for renewal?

The only purpose for bringing back the old plates, so to get a credit for any remaining time until the sticker expires. (and also, so that someone else doesn't use your plates in the future...)
