The automobile insurance board (SAAQ) is giving Quebec drivers a two-year break from paying the insurance portion of their license renewal fees in 2022 and 2023.

For the average driver, this means a savings of roughly $184.11 if you drive a car or van. If you have a combined car and motorcycle license, expect to save $338.15 over the next two years.

Drivers will only have to pay the fees and charges when they renew their driver's licence, a bill of about $23.

The SAAQ made the announcement on Friday, attributing it to a $1.158 billion surplus that it wants to "give back" to its customers. In total, Quebecers will save almost $1.16 billion.
