In-vehicle Passenger DriveTest Cancelled during the Provincewide Lockdown

Published on December 23, 2020

On December 21, the government announced that a Provincial Shutdown will be in place as of Saturday, December 26 at 12:01 a.m. As a result, the government will be cancelling all in-vehicle passenger road tests across Northern Ontario until January 9 and for all 27 public health unit regions in Southern Ontario until January 23.

If you have a test booked at a DriveTest location, your road test has been cancelled. You will receive a credit on the system so that you can rebook your test once they are available.

All in-vehicle road tests for commercial drivers will continue to be available. This includes the resumption of in-vehicle roads tests for commercial drivers as of December 29 at DriveTest centres currently in Grey (Lockdown) regions.

By continuing and resuming in-vehicle road tests for commercial drivers, we can address the demand for fully licensed commercial drivers and support these essential workers by ensuring that qualified applicants can complete their testing.

All DriveTest locations will remain open for inside services, such as knowledge tests, with capacity restrictions and COVID-19 preventative measures in place.

We know these measures may result in some customers experiencing longer wait times for road tests. However, our number one priority is the health and well-being of Ontarians.

On the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, all Ontarians are advised to stay home as much as possible with trips outside the home limited to necessities such as food, medication, medical appointments, or supporting vulnerable community members.
