“Ontario is making tremendous progress to clear the road test backlog at DriveTest centres across the province,”  said Minister of Transportation, Caroline Mulroney. “With our aggressive plan to open additional temporary centres, hire additional temporary driver examiners, and offer road tests with extended weekday operating hours for passenger road testing, including weekends, we're getting Ontario back on track.”

Throughout efforts to clear the backlog, the health and safety of DriveTest customers and staff has been at the forefront of Ontario’s plan. Customers will be required to wear face masks inside centres and during road tests, sanitize their hands and complete the Patron/customer screening.

In addition to opening temporary centres, the province is also hiring an additional 251 temporary driver examiners, extending weekday operating hours for passenger road testing and offering passenger road tests on Saturdays and Sundays at select locations to clear the backlog of road tests.
