As a result of the Ontario Government’s expanded lockdown announced Dec. 21, the MTO announced all in-vehicle passenger road tests across the province will be cancelled, but all in-vehicle road tests for commercial drivers will continue to be available.
“The ministry recognizes that commercial drivers play a vital role in keeping goods moving and our store shelves stocked across Ontario,” the MTO stated.
This includes the resumption of in-vehicle roads tests for commercial drivers as of December 29, 2020 at DriveTest centres currently in Grey (Lockdown) regions.
By continuing and resuming in-vehicle road tests for commercial drivers in all regions across the Province, we are able to address the demand for fully licensed commercial drivers and support these essential workers by ensuring that qualified applicants can complete their testing.
“Our first priority is protecting the health and safety of individuals, families and workers. As such the requirements for face coverings, health screening and temperature checks remain in place. Moreover, DriveTest centres will be subject to strict health protocols and appropriate action will be taken in every instance it is determined protocols were breached.”
DriveTest centres will remain open for indoor services, such as knowledge tests, with capacity limits and COVID-19 preventative measures in place.
