Ontario Expands Driver Testing Services Provincewide

Driver testing services across the province are expanding with strict protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Starting the day after Labour Day, you will be able to book class G road tests and access all classes of driver testing services at DriveTest centres across Ontario.

All full-time DriveTest centres will be offering 100% of their services with restrictions removed, such as knowledge tests being accessible only by birth month.

Some examples of resumed services include:

  • Class G1 and M1 knowledge tests
  • Driver’s licence exchanges and upgrades
  • By Appointment only:
  • Class G2 and class G road tests
  • Class M2 and class M motorcycle road tests; and,
  • Commercial driver road tests for all classes of commercial driver’s licences.
  • Part-time Travel Point locations will continue to reopen for driver examination services as the shared facilities they are located in become available for public use. People can visit to receive the most up to date information.

All services are first come, first served.

To protect the safety of Ontarians, DriveTest continues to require customers to wear face coverings inside centres and during road tests, sanitize their hands when they enter the building and submit to temperature checks and screening questions for those taking road tests. Exceptions will be made for those taking motorcycle road tests and for people with a medical condition or a disability.

All DriveTest staff will 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.

The government continues to ask the public to be patient when visiting DriveTest centres and is encouraging people who can wait to get a driver’s licence to delay visiting DriveTest centres in an effort to reduce crowding. Ontario has temporarily extended the validity of all driver licences so that no one will lose their licence as a result of COVID-19.
