FREDERICTON (GNB) – People with licences, registrations, certificates and permits that had their expiration dates extended until the end of June due to the COVID-19 pandemic are being encouraged to renew their documents now.

“The majority of licences, registrations, certificates and permits can be renewed online or through Teleservices,” said Service New Brunswick Minister Sherry Wilson. “Waiting until the end of June may cause delays, especially for things like driver’s licences which take two weeks to process and be mailed out.”

Service New Brunswick has been increasing the number of services it offers online and through Teleservices, especially for some of its most requested renewals such as driver’s licences.

“Online and Teleservices are the most accessible, safe and convenient service methods,” said Wilson. “Based upon the significant increase in these methods, we believe New Brunswickers are embracing them.”

Currently there are 12 centres offering in-person services, by appointment only, that cannot be completed online or through Teleservices. A list of services offered at the centres is available online. Appointments can be booked by calling Teleservices at 1-888-762-8600 (Option #6) Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
