The Ontario government is cancelling all in-vehicle road tests at the Windsor DriveTest centre.

The province also says people in lockdown areas including the City of Windsor and Essex County are also now prohibited from taking a road test at a DriveTest centre in another region, in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

They say if people living in lockdown regions have a road test booked in a different region, it will need to be cancelled, and that DriveTest will not honour road test appointments booked by residents from lockdown regions.

“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 the protection of the health and safety of individuals, families and workers.”

The province says road test cancellations in lockdown regions are “without penalty” and customers will receive a credit in the system so they may rebook their test when their region moves to a lower COVID-19 level.

The Ministry of Transportation says DriveTest centres in lockdown regions will be open for indoor services, such as knowledge tests, with capacity limits and COVID-19 preventative measures in place.
