Province cancelling all road tests for the bulk of January as part of mass lockdown

Those who have already booked will get a credit with DriveTest

You might have been practicing for that big road test coming up in the new year, and at least now you’ll have more time to hone your skills behind the wheel. The province has announced it is cancelling all passenger road tests throughout Ontario.

As a result of the province-wide shutdown coming up on December 26, the Ontario Government will cancel all in-vehicle tests until January 9 for any region north of Sudbury and until January 23 for southern Ontario.

“We know that these measures may be a serious inconvenience for people waiting for a road test,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “However, these are unprecedented times and our number one priority remains protecting the health and safety of individuals, families and workers.”

Road tests are being cancelled without penalty to those who made the booking. Those who see their tests cancelled will receive a credit with DriveTest to be used at a future date.
