Renewal dates for drivers licenses in Manitoba will soon be in line with Autopac.

Merlin Heppner is with Friesen Insurance Brokers in Winkler.

He says this will alter what some people pay for their licenses.

People renewing their licenses over the next few months will notice a smaller fee.

However, he says this is just a pro-rated short term fee to bring you up to your Autopac renewal date.

Heppner says they have had a few customers come in under the new format.

For the most part people were initially surprised to see the lower cost until the change was explained to them.
