Unfortunately I recently received a ticket for an expired license sticker. Long story short the car used to be registered to someone with a birth day of July. The car was then transferred over to me, properly at a service Ontario, and my DOB is late August. I was always told that the license sticker expired on your DOB regardless of what the actual sticker said. Perhaps I should have investigated before taking the advice of a friend, but does this have any validity to it? Or should I just be paying the ticket? I don't think it changes anything but I did not receive a reminder letter as well to make things worse (seems there was a glitch for July renewal letters). Thanks very much.
Why do you still have the previous ownerÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s plates on the car? Was it a family vehicle where the plates were transferred to you as well? Your correct in that plates typically expire on the registered ownerÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s birthday, but for it to apply to the new owner youÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢d need to get a new validation sticker, etc.
