Effective October 1, 2013, all ‘new’ Ontario-based operators, who apply for a Ministry of Transportation (MTO) Commercial Vehicle Operators’ Registration (CVOR) certificate, must complete a written test. Operators will be required to demonstrate knowledge of Ontario’s safety laws by completing this test in person at a DriveTest Centre before MTO will issue a CVOR certificate. The test is a one-time requirement and must be successfully completed within six months of MTO accepting the CVOR application. To apply for a CVOR certificate, an operator must complete a Commercial Vehicle Operators’ registration and pay the required fee of $250.
