Rules eliminating front license plates in N.B. take effect Monday


Recent amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act eliminated the requirement of front licence plates in the province.

As of today all passenger and light commercial vehicles registered in New Brunswick will officially no longer require a front plate.

The change aligns the policy with the other Atlantic provinces and most of Canada.

However, there will not be a reduction in the cost of plates for consumers.

Fees from registration plates are used to cover the cost of the province’s motor vehicle program and computer system, the delivery of motor vehicle services by Service New Brunswick, and highway infrastructure and maintenance.
