Ontario hiring more drive test examiners to clear DriveTest backlog
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.
