Ontario is beginning to reopen its DriveTest centres. Starting August 4, 2020 the province will expand locations offering testing services to motorcycle drivers, and G2 license holders.
“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,” Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney said. As of Tuesday DriveTest Centres will be offering the following services:
- Class G2 road tests
- Class M2 and class M motorcycle road tests
- Commercial driver road tests availability will expand to 42 DriveTest locations across Ontario
- Part-time Travel Point locations will resume driver examination services as the shared facilities they are located in become available for the public’s use.
The province has decided to restrict availability based on the birthday month. Those with birthdays in January to June will be able to go one week, and those whose’ birthdays in the second half of the year will be able to go the following. “To those going to a centre please excerise caution and follow all of the public health guidelines,” Mulroney said.

DriveTest centres that have already reopened under phase 1 will continue serving customers based on their birthdate. They do ask for customers to wear face coverings, as all staff wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Examiners will be equipped with face shields, hand sanitizer, and seat covers for road tests.
