Coronavirus (COVID-19): government service changes

Keep up to date on government closures, what services have changed due to COVID-19 and new tools and services that are available to help you access services and information online.

Access Nova Scotia

As a result of COVID-19, there are changes to services. Deadline extensions are in place for some Registry of Motor Vehicles services (like driver licence renewals). You can also access some services online (you might not need to visit Access Nova Scotia in-person) or make an appointment. Check which services are available at Access Nova Scotia, including hours and what services you can access online.

Closures, cancellations and service changes

Renew your driver's licence online (class 5, 6 and 8)

You don’t need to renew your driver’s licence in person. For a class 5 (passenger vehicle), class 6 (motorcycle) or class 8 (farm tractor) driver’s licence, you can renew online if your licence expires on or before 31 December 2020.

Registry of Motor Vehicles online inquiries service

If you have questions about services at Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), check the Registry of Motor Vehicles online inquiries service. This service covers some of the most common RMV questions people have during COVID-19.
