DriveTest Enters into Phase 3Published on September 04, 2020
As Ontario continues down the path to economic recovery, it is critical that supports are in place so people can return to work. The Ontario government and its service provider, DriveTest, have slowly and gradually reintroduced driver testing services across the province throughout the summer with strict protocols in place to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Starting on Tuesday September 8, all classes of driver testing services will be available at full-time DriveTest centres, including:
- Class G1 and M1 knowledge tests
- Driver’s licence exchanges and upgrades
- Class G2 and class G road tests
- Class M2 and class M motorcycles road tests; and,
- Commercial driver road test for all classes of commercial driver’s licences.
Part-time Travel Point locations will continue to reopen for driver examination services, as the shared facilities they are located in become available for public use. Starting September 8, all services offered by DriveTest, with the exception of road tests, will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The current practice of serving customers for knowledge tests and other services offered inside DriveTest centres by the customer’s month of birth will be discontinued.
Road tests will continue to be available by appointment. Please visit www.DriveTest.ca to plan your visit prior to arriving at a DriveTest centre. We ask the public to be patient with the requirements for physical distancing and enhanced sanitation at DriveTest centres. These health and safety protocols are necessary to protect pubic and employee safety during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
We continue to encourage people who can wait to get a driver’s licence to delay visiting a DriveTest centre to help maintain physical distancing and reducing crowding as the centres reopen. We have temporarily extended the validity of all driver licences – no one will lose their licence as a result of COVID-19.
