CHRISTINE Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, and Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation, said in a statement on Sunday that based on the advice of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all full-time DriveTest Centres and part-time Travel Point locations will be closed. The closures will take effect March 23 until further notice.
The decision to close was the result of a mutual agreement between the government and service provider.
They said: “Ontarians can rest assured they will not lose their current driver’s licences due to this decision and no driver’s licence applicants will lose test fees as a result of the closures. The current “Fail to Keep Appointment” penalty fee will also be waived.
“We have a responsibility to Ontarians to ensure that we take every possible step to enable social distancing and prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
