Yes, it's indeed a license renewal from the MTO (Ministry of Transport of Ontario). And yes, they use such ridiculous names that make you worry it might not be legit. But it is, we just received our renewal by mail.

mto web site did not work properly, i applied twice because it was saying time expired, on my pending transactions looks like i will be charged twice for renewal sticker, how can i cancel one transaction?

Benny on May 09, 2018

MTO MEDICAL REVIEW SCAM Honestly if you really don’t know how I am yet, you soon will… Im Christopher Desjardins the Canadian citizen you keep on screwing. Your total disrespect to people is unfounded. You guys really have no idea of why or what you do things. Im 49 years old with 100% clean drivers record Ill l did was get sick over 2 years ago. There are horrible drivers and 16yrs driving, I avoid accidents. In 2014 my son and I got hit by two drunks, no settlement why, MORE LIBERAL SCREW UPS, MADE CHANGES TO ONLY SAVE THERE BIG COMPANIES MONEY RATES WENT UP. Your dept can’t answer direct questions because you out source tests for profit. Tests are inconstant and costs are too. 650-800$ is a rip off. I You can’t even give me a temp properly. YOU WREAKED MY COMPANIES AND FAMILY, AND HAVE DEPRESSION. Thank god for Doug Fords new gov’t. I am in talks with Ford to come in and totally reform your regime. For some dumb reason you made me do more medical forms 3 months back. You have not got back…guess your busy wreaking other peoples life. I told you guys another summer you will wreak, you did it ! Did the Minister of MTO lose her job too ? YOU WANT MY DRIVERS LICENCE NUMBER I DONT KNOW I DONT HAVE ONE, AND SOME ILLEGAL IMERGRENT STOLE MY WALLET. YOU LOOK IT / NOV/25/68 B-DAY l was speaking to Eric You should way any more fees as the testing is unfair to make more money. Last time I did not yield to a brick wall with one lane going one direct. I so can’t wait for a stand up Gov’t.

I tried to renew my licence sticker by visa 4 times each time the mesage was that my Payment was rejected. The next day I tried again and it went thru. How is it I was charged $240.00 five times on my visa. I hope it clears up itself very soon. Why did I keep getting the message , not accepted. I kept trying thinking I made an error doing the input. Seems like it wouldnt be a big effort on their part to explain.tThgNV

Peter on October 31, 2018

I had absolutely no problems with my experience

faryal on December 04, 2018

This is a legitimate charge from the Ministry of Transportation Ontario. It is not a scam - it is varying fees for your vehicle/licence. They have listed the fees on their website. Check it out : http://www.ontariolicences.com/16-vehicles/34-mto-fees-and-fines

Master of Disaster on March 01, 2019

Ok people, take a chill pill...this is legit. You went online and renewed your little plate sticker and were charged $120 (as of 2019) for it so you can drive on plowed roads and have safely patrolled streets. Please get checked for memory problems if you can't remember. Peace out my fellow GTA'ers, drive safe and buckle up buckeroo! Yeehaw!!

Lou on June 19, 2019

MTO online payment website is obvious flawed. A couple of years ago after using their website my credit card became compromised and I needed to replace my card. Today I tried to renew my "stickers" and once again I ran into problems, i.e. payment was decline so I tried again and again it was declined, tried a third time and the payment was declined. HOWEVER, when I checked my credit account online it showed all three (3) charges a pending. MTO needs to get its act in order in regards to their online driver services.

Simon on August 12, 2019

It is legit.. Not a scam.. It is Ministry of Transportation Ontario for online license renewal.

Blair on November 02, 2019

lol glad I checked this. The website said there was a "technical error" and I thought the payment didn't go through. Good thing I checked my credit card account online and saw this charge. The City of Toronto really fucks everything up, doesn't it?

Jazz on November 06, 2019

This is the service ontario charge, I paid for my license renewal.

YCollin on November 16, 2019

Ce titre correspond bien à celui utilisé pour le paiement de frais en lien avec le services en ligne de ServiceOntario.

Zere on May 01, 2020

I paid $24 for me and my wife's three year abstract.they took my money from my credit card(rejected my debit card).unfortunately it's been 20+ hrs,though i provide them my email they didnt send it so far.i even checked my spam so far nothing!very very sad.

William Stewart on June 11, 2020

I would really like to know where my license sticker is. It has been over two weeks since it was charged. You have two choices: you can express ship my sticker or you can refund my money. YOUR CHOICE Expecting to here from someone ASAP.

Tahani on June 22, 2020

It’s Ministry of transportation transaction for license renewal

Dan McCulloch on June 30, 2020

CVOR Abstract . You took my money , now where is my abstract . Don't use this service ! Rip OFF

Sandy on July 28, 2020

I got charged $12 in April 2020 in my credit card and $302 in July 2020. What is this??? If it's a charge for license or sticker renewal, my sticker doesn’t come up till October and my license not till 2021. I DID NOT authorize any payments or was ever on MTO website since a year ago. This is ridiculous!!!

Aina on August 02, 2020

When your Ontario Drivers' License is renewed online, your credit card transaction will show the transaction details as: MTO RUS SO ECHANNEL DOWNSVIEW CA

Colin on August 11, 2020

This is a Ministry if Ontario charge for plate renewal stickers. Not a scam (well in a sense!)

William on October 03, 2020

they should use a name everyone can understand

Anish Patwari on October 22, 2020

The name look absurd as it appear in my statement online but as I have gone through and found that I renewed my plate last night.But still shocked with transection name given

Loopy on October 26, 2020

This is a government (Ministry of Transportation) charge for your driver's license renewal. I thought at first it might be a scan also then quickly clued in on what it was. They aren't even renewing plate stickers yet and tell you to just use the one you are using.

Acdcmike on October 27, 2020

Sorry to bust everyone's bubble here but this is the fee that the ministry charges when a drivers abstract has been requested.

Acdcmike on October 27, 2020

Sorry to bust everyone's bubble here but this is the standard fee from the Ministry when a person requests a driver's abstract.

iNaix on December 16, 2020

The name MTO RUS- SO ECHANNEL is really ridiculous and inappropriate for the official gov institution. I thought that some Russian hackers compromised my credit card. lol :) But it is really the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario.

ACS on January 29, 2021

Same thing here. Error message on first attempt so did it again. Charged twice. Trying to get reimbursed now is like pulling teeth. Absolutely ridiculous. At the end of my conversation with the CSR he's like well maybe you should contact your member of parliament.

Lairdus on April 03, 2021

Didn't recognize this charge initially, thought it might be a Channel charge, like the perfume, which is not my speed at all. In thinking about it I came to the conclusion that I paid for a Drivers Abstract online, and seeing this listed on scamcharge.com as a Ministry of Transportation joint connected the dots. maybe it's Ministry Transportation Ontraio (MTO), and ECHANNEL might just be Electronic Channel? to differentiate payment types? totally a bonkers name, looks very sus.

WebsiteGuru.ca on July 13, 2021

It's a charge from Service Ontario. You renewed your license or your plate sticker. Not a scam

AHMED on August 08, 2021

MTO Ecommerce drive test site is scam or may be poor management of website

Fari on September 29, 2021

This is NOT legit. I only use a particular credit card to renew my sticker every May. I got charged on another credit card in August, A credit card i never use either. Just coz the name states MTO does not mean its the actual MTO that is charging ur card. I filed a dispute with my CC company. better to be safe than sorry.

Scott J on October 08, 2021

"MTO RUS- SO ECHANNEL DOWNSVIEW ON" appeared on my credit card. It was the renewal fee for an Ontario Id card. I renewed on line through Services Ontario. It is legit.

Robert B on October 21, 2021

This was a legitimate charge by the MTO. I now live in NB but needed a driver's abstract for insurance. This $12.00 charge is standard.

Rob Lopez on October 22, 2021

I got a charge from this vendor and found out it was a car seller package from Service ON. It was legitimate

Felix on April 05, 2022

It is any charge by Ministry of Transportation Ontario, including driving licence renewal and driving licence record.

afshar on April 10, 2022

they charged me 10.50 $ I do not drive and i have not driver licanse. why they charge me . if i have not this plan. this government is scam . when they need money puting hand in people pockets

DPEACHEY on June 17, 2022

I would have been really nice if a letter arrived in the mail saying they were adding a charge to my credit card. I am retired and have to budget so every expense has to be planned for on an already very tight budget. Not all of us have the spending account our present Prime Minister has, some of us actually are at poverty level and below.
