Having had to postpone road tests for several months due to Ontario-wide lockdowns, the Province is opening additional testing centres in order to help address the backlog of appointments.

On Monday (August 30), the Province announced it will be opening three additional road testing centres in Burlington, Markham, and East Gwillimbury.

As of September 7, appointments will be available for class G2 and G road tests seven days per week between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. at Burlington GO Station and Mount Joy GO Station in Markham.

Additionally, as of September 20, a third, temporary road test centre operating during these hours will be open at East Gwillimbury GO Station.

Further, in the coming weeks, four more temporary road test centres will open in Mississauga, southwestern Ontario, Niagara Region and the Ottawa area.

Those who wish to book an appointment for their road test will be required to complete an online screening questionnaire prior to their test.

“Our government is making tremendous progress to clear the road test backlog at Ontario DriveTest centres,” Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation, said in a news release.

“We’re getting Ontario back on track 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.”
