Registry of Motor Vehicles - Driver's Licence Refund

Refunds on a driver's licence may be given:
  • If the driver leaves the jurisdiction,
  • If the driver is deceased, or
  • If the driver voluntarily surrenders licence and the Registrar is satisfied that the driver's licence has been returned to the Registry for the reason of incapacity or inability.
The refund amount shall be based on the number of full unused months remaining in the licence period, less an administration fee of $15.15 (includes $1.98 HST).

No refund will be made where the applicant is entitled to less than $3.00.

The $11.90 fee for the production of the photo licence is non-refundable.

Procedure For Refund:
A driver's licence (or proof that your licence was surrendered to another jurisdiction) accompanied by a refund application may be deposited at any of the Registry of Motor Vehicle offices throughout the province of Nova Scotia or mailed to:

Refund Section
Registry of Motor Vehicles
P.O. Box 1652
