If you are renewing, or getting your first drivers license in Quebec, three main factors factor into the cost. They are:
- Insurance Contribution (including tax)
- Charge (the actual cost of the license)
- The fees that are paid to the Ministère des Finances et de l’Économie
Note that in some cases there is also a cost of $8.95 to cover the photo and plasticization.
As you can see in the table below, the only cost that varies with the number of demerit points (given by law enforcement for driving infringements) is the insurance contribution. Demerit points that are put onto your driving record cause the insurance contribution fee, which you pay when you renew your license, to increase. If you hold a license in both Class 5 (passenger vehicle) and Class 6 (motorcycle), the SAAQ assume that if you drive unsafely in one, your behavior will be similar in the other. This increases your risk, and the insurance contribution for your Class 5 and Class 6 licenses will be added together.
