Renewing sticker through ServiceOntario.ca?

Has anyone been through hell when trying to renew your sticker through ServiceOntario.ca? That site is a pain to work with as alot of times when I submit info I get that E-Com-58 error. Finally got it working after a few hours. Don't think it's just my T400's problem, as I try a number of computers and got the same thing.

I filled in the survey afterwards:

I found it was very easy and convenient to do the sticker renewal online.
Replacement stickers came in the mail.

Better to renew for 2 years in case you get any kind of ticket / fine or 407 charges that you can't pay immediately. It will be longer before you are forced to pay in order to renew the sticker.

Maybe the site hates my car license plate then =p

I wanted to as well, but I can't since my car has to do Drive Clean in 2011...

Even checking against my licence plate number seemed too daunting of a task for the website. Luckily I have a Service Ontario kiosk nearby and got my new sticker easily.

I did it at the Kiosk.

The stupid machines charges you one dollar convenience fee.

So you do all the work yourself (taking away someones job
), input everything yourself, wait in line at the kiosk, and they charge you an extra $1 surcharge :(

Renewing online FTW. I did mine without any problems although I do not remember if there was a charge/admin fee (that's what they like to call it) for mailing it.

Mine came within a week every year i've done it (re-read thread so I don't have to waste my time retyping info.)

However you should really give this whole process 4-6 weeks to be on the safe side (considering it is the MTO.)

If you need the sticker quickly (ie. if you leave everything to the last day for some unknown reason,) then go to the kiosk!!!!

common sense FTW!

I actually prefer to do one year at a time, as in case the car gets written off or something, I dont have to try and chase them down to get a refund for the unused amount of the sticker (time).
But I always pay my tickets/407 bills.
Thanks for the memories, RFD.
Good-bye.

Resurrecting an old thread - does anyone know if you can renew your sticker through a self serve kiosk if a e-test is required for when you renew?

Yes, but you still need to e-test your car.
