Ontario's DriveTest centres will expand operations on Tuesday.

Starting Aug. 4, road testing for class G2 and all motorcycle licences will resume, and the number of locations offering commercial driver road tests will also expand.

To reduce crowding and support physical distancing, most DriveTest centres will continue to serve these customers based on the date of the customer’s birth.

Customers who need road tests should visit to schedule a test.

People with birthdays between January to June will be allowed to visit a centre one week, and people with birthdays between July to December will have access to DriveTest services the following week.

Everyone is asked to hold off visiting a Drive Test Centre unless absolutely necessary.

DriveTest requires customers to wear face coverings inside centres and during road tests. Customers will also need to sanitize their hands when entering the building and undergo temperature checks before road tests.

Staff will wear personal protective equipment, and driving examiners will have face shields, sanitizer packages and seat covers when conducting road tests.

On June 22, DriveTest centres in Ontario began offering limited services across the province.

This first phase opened 56 full-time DriveTest centres for G1 and M1 knowledge tests, driver's licence exchanges and commercial driver's licence applications and upgrades.
