DriveTest centres will move into the second phase of its reopening plan on Tuesday, August 4th, 2020.

This phase will see road testing for class G2 and all motorcycle licences will resume and the number of locations offering commercial driver road tests will expand.

“As we continue to reopen our economy, resuming driver testing is another way our government is helping people get back to work,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “We are phasing-in these services to ensure important health and safety measures are in place at all DriveTest centres and our staff and customers are fully protected.”

All driver licensing services offered as part of phase 1 of DriveTest’s reopening, including knowledge tests and driver’s licence exchanges and upgrades, will continue to be available on a first-come, first served basis. To reduce crowding and support physical distancing, most DriveTest centres will continue to serve these customers based on the date of the customer’s birth. Customers who need road tests should visit DriveTest.ca to schedule a test.

People with birthdays between January to June will be allowed to visit a centre one week, and people with birthdays between July to December will have access to DriveTest services the following week.

“We have temporarily extended the expiration date of all driver’s licences, so we would ask that everyone hold off on visiting a DriveTest centre unless absolutely necessary,” said Minister Mulroney. “For those going to a centre please exercise caution and follow all of the public health guidelines.”

To protect the safety of Ontarians DriveTest requires customers to wear face coverings inside centres and during road tests, sanitize their hands when they enter the building and undergo temperature checks before road tests. All DriveTest staff wear appropriate personal protective equipment when serving customers and driver examiners will also be equipped with face shields, sanitizer packages and seat covers when conducting road tests.
