Niagara Falls is getting a temporary drive test centre in a bid to clear out the backlog of road tests caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Niagara West MPP Sam Oosterhoff made the announcement today (October 13), saying, “Our government has a strategic plan to reduce the backlog of novice road tests, and I am pleased that we are delivering additional testing for people in Niagara.”
The temporary centre, which is located at 6080 McLeod Road, will open Monday (October 18) and offer class G2 and G road tests seven days a week between 7 am. and 6 pm
Customers will be able to book road tests online beginning tomorrow (October 14).
In a statement, provincial Minister of Transportation Caroline Mulroney said, “By opening temporary road test centres, hiring additional driver examiners, and extending weekday operating hours for passenger road testing, we’re getting Ontario back on track.”
The government added that the public should only book road tests at DriveTest.ca, and avoid booking through third-party websites.
