Ontario hiring more drive test examiners to clear DriveTest backlog

CKTB - NEWS - Drive Test

The province is hiring 130 temporary drive test examiners to try and clear the backlog at DriveTest centres.

The long waits for road tests are a result of the centres closing earlier this year due to the pandemic.

Provincial officials hope to reduce the backlog of 350,000 road tests to pre-COVID-19 levels by next March.

Anyone going for a road test must wear a mask, submit to temperature checks, and complete other screenings.
