To close the account of a deceased person, you can:

  1. Make a payment for the full account balance
  2. Return any transponders from the account
  3. Return or transfer any plate(s) (including trailer plates) by visiting a Service Ontario location (this is important to ensure there are no future bills sent to this account)
