TORONTO, Ont. – Ontario is closing the Drive Test Centres and part-time Travel Point locations effective immediately.

“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, 2020 until further notice,” Deputy Premier Christine Elliot and Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney say in a joint statement.

They confirm that no licence applicants will lose test fees as a result of the closures, and the “fail to keep appointment” penalties will also be waived.
