DriverCheck to celebrate 20th anniversary in style


AYR, Ont. – DriverCheck is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer.

To commemorate this special occasion, DriverCheck is hosting a Customer Appreciation Party, on September 14 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at its Kitchener Medical Clinic.

DriverCheck said the event will include a BBQ lunch, prizes and a knowledge bar where people can ask physicians questions about the different medical services they provide.

Prizes to win include:

  • 50” TV
  • Rebel Creek Golf Course – 18 holes and cart for 4
  • Grey Silo Golf Course – 18 holes and cart for 4
  • 4 Blue Jays tickets
  • Variety of gift cards

Since DriverCheck began in 1996 by Dr. Chris Page and his wife, Dr. Mary-Jean Page it has conducted more than 2 million tests. Today, it has 140 employees located across Canada and more than 5,000 customers.

Dr. Chris Page started the business because he felt he needed a new challenge and knew that breaking into the trucking and transportation industry was a good opportunity for him.

“After practising emergency medicine for over twenty years, I was ready for a new challenge,” Dr. Chris Page said. “Emergency medicine is the most exciting form of medical care, and I absolutely loved it. But, I wanted to do something more, and wanted to start a business with my wife Mary-Jean. We became aware that the US DOT was going to legislate alcohol and drug testing, and I immediately knew this was a market to be in.”

“We have many fond memories from the early years,” added Dr. Mary-Jean Page. “We were two people with a vision. In 1996, we started the first DriverCheck office on our farm just outside of Ayr. We didn’t need much space, so we just moved the filing cabinets next to the tractor. We made it work.”
