TORONTO, Ont. — Following the Ontario Public Services Employees Union (OPSEU) strike, the Ministry of Transportation’s (MTO) computer system has finally been restored enabling licences to be issued.
All driver and most vehicle transactions are now available reports the MTO. As previously announced, the province has automatically extended driver licences and some specialized permits expiring Mar. 13, or later, to Aug. 2, to give people extra time to renew and avoid line ups.
As well, priority continues to be given to drivers whose road tests were cancelled because of the eight-week OPSEU strike. Call 416-325-8580, or call or visit the Driver Examination Centre where your test was booked to arrange a new time.
