Guy's

I just wanna double check if anyone can confirm

When buying a used car from a car dealer, what "fees" do I pay.
from google I've found the below

D.O.T $399.00
Administration Fee $199.00
Gasoline $30.00
OMVIC Fee $5.00
License Fee $120.00

does this all get paid to the dealer?

what is the DOT fee for?

I know I have to also pay tax, does this get paid at the dealer?
do I register the car or the dealer?
if myself, what paperwork do I take to the drivers license office,

I also have a plate which would be good to transfer over to the car instead of paying for a new one.

any other advise on the logistics/legaility of buying a used car form a dealer would help

cheers

You only have to pay the purchase price and licence fees (fees charged for transferring ownership, plates and sticker) and HST.
Some dealers will try to charge you extra to certify and e-test others will factor it in the purchase price. Admin fee is just a cash grab.
The dealer goes to the ministry and transfers the car in your name and either buys plates and validation sticker for you or transfers your old plates on to the new car.
It's always a good idea to buy from a dealer that you know or is known by someone you know.
Purchasing a warranty from the dealer is also advisable (the warranty price is negotiable).

Of course the total purchase price is negotiable...

As ynotp says, that's a rip-off.

Are you kidding?!!!?! I've never heard of, or paid, for gas in the tank. Wow.

I suppose the DOT would be to get you brand new plates... but if you're trading-in and purchasing another car, it should just be to transfer the plates.

And BTW... if you go near the end of the month, a number of used car dealers try to move inventory off the lot around that time so you may have a chance of getting a slightly bigger reduction in your pricing. Ultimately, the total purchase price can be adjusted based on what you're willing to offer. One little trick I learned was, if they leave you in the room alone when discussing price, get up and walk out of the room. (There was a W-5 or Fifth Estate special in the 1990s that I recall seeing this in.) Worked great at the Honda dealer a couple of years ago: The salesman freaked, ran right up to us and we said "oh we're just talking about the Toyota Corolla... and Toyota Dealer 'X' is just over there..." Minutes later they sold us the vehicle for less than employee pricing, INCLUDING all of the fees.

haha have to remember that one RI.

all sorted out, less hassle than I thought,

$100 bucks for a full tank of gas :(

but all paperwork done, licence, sticker etc. I just surrendered the old plates for a rsticker refund.

got the price down, but I'm a shitty negotiator, could have done better.

txs foir all the great feedback
and yes I did get an extended w'tee and car still has about a year factory w'tee
