Return of In-Car Testing at DriveTest

Published on February 17, 2021

As of February 16, 2021, passenger road tests will resume in all regions except at centres located in regions that are still subject to the Stay-at-Home order, namely Toronto, Peel, York and North Bay Perry Sound.  

The DriveTest centres located in regions that are subject to the Stay-at-Home order:

  • Brampton, Downsview, Etobicoke, Metro East, Mississauga, Newmarket, North Bay, Port Union and St. Catharines.

If you have a test booked in a region that is subject to the Stay-at-Home order, or is in the Grey (Lockdown) level, your road test has been cancelled. You will receive a credit on the system so that you can rebook your test when your region moves to a lower COVID-19 level.

Applicants who reside in a region that is subject to the Stay-at-Home order, or is in the Grey (Lockdown) level, may not book a road test at a DriveTest centre in a different region in a lower COVID-19 level.

If you live in a region that is subject to the Stay-at-Home order, or is in the Grey (Lockdown) level, and try to attend a DriveTest location for a road test outside of your COVID-19 level, you will be turned away.

The Ministry of Transportation is taking these measures to restrict DriveTest applicants who reside in a region that is subject to the Stay-at-Home order, or is in the Grey (Lockdown) level from taking a road test elsewhere to limit the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus.

All DriveTest centres including those in a region that is subject to the Stay-at-Home order, or is in the Grey (Lockdown) level 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 people’s health and safety.
