Ontario’s DriveTest centres reopen today with ‘limited service’

Full service is not likely to be restored until September

Ontario’s 56 DriveTest centres restart their engines today with ‘limited service’ for G1 and M1 knowledge tests, driver’s licence exchanges, and commercial driver’s licence applications and upgrades.

Commercial road tests can only be booked by appointment at 28 locations.

Customers with birthdays between January and June will be allowed to access the centres this week and customers born after that will get their turn next week.

The Ontario government expects the alternating system to continue until full services are restored in September.

Customers will be required to wear face coverings inside the centres and during road tests. Prior to road tests, customers will have to undergo temperature checks.

Driver examiners will wear face shields and will have seat covers when conducting tests.
