Ministry of Transportation Ontario Extends Deadlines

The MTO has announced that they will be extending the validation period for driver’s licenses, medical and vision testing, license plates, CVOR renewals and other products and services that may expire in the next few weeks.

You should still attempt to use the online renewal system if you qualify.

Service Ontario (which processes many of these renewals) also deals with health cards which are also having the same extensions.

There is no fixed timeline for these extensions, but the recommendation of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health will guide the ministry’s decision.

Time sensitive products such as single trip oversize/overweight permits and MVIS stock orders will still be made available during this time.

The notice did not mention what will be done with new applications, upgrades of licenses, etc.

For more information see the announcement.
