Ontario Is Opening More Road Test Centres To Help With The Massive Lineups

Wannabe drivers struggling to take their road tests due to the COVID-19 backlog in Ontario just got some welcome news from the province.

The Ontario government announced on Monday that it will be opening three additional temporary road test centres in Markham, Burlington and East Gwillimbury. According to a press release, they're also hiring 251 temporary driving examiners to help solve the issue and increase the number of G and G2 tests available.

"These temporary road test centres will help increase testing capacity across the DriveTest network and help people who need a road test book[ed] sooner," reads the press release.

The new temporary road test centres at Burlington GO Station and Mount Joy GO Station in Markham will open on September 7 and will offer class G2 and G road tests seven days a week between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

The temporary road test centre at the East Gwillimbury GO Station will open on September 20 and will operate seven days a week between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m as well.

"Our government is making tremendous progress to clear the road test backlog at Ontario DriveTest centres," said Caroline Mulroney, minister of transportation.

"We're getting Ontario back on track with our aggressive plan to open additional temporary centres, hire additional temporary driver examiners, and offer road tests with extended weekday operating hours for passenger road testing, including weekends."

Four more temporary road test centres will be opening shortly in the coming weeks to aid Mississauga, southwestern Ontario, Niagara Region and Ottawa.

These are in addition to the other temporary road test centres that opened in Guelph and Oshawa in August.
