DriveTest Centre Features
Centres across Ontario are designed to accommodate — and include — everyone.
Serco Canada Inc. has published accessibility standards for customer service [link opens a new window] that reflect Ontario Regulation 429/07 and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. Serco's policy applies to all DriveTest Centres and the Support Office to ensure equal access to its goods and services.

Driver Examination Services
- A variety of knowledge testing methods are available: verbal, handwritten, and computerized. People who have reading or writing challenges can take a verbal/audio knowledge test. Computerized knowledge tests have audio capabilities. If you require a verbal test administered by a DriveTest Centre employee, an appointment may be required. Please visit a DriveTest Centre for details.
- People who are deaf may use sign-language interpreters for their knowledge tests and/or road tests. To use sign language support, you must make an appointment for a knowledge test and obtain prior approval from a DriveTest regional manager for a road test. We will reimburse you for the reasonable and necessary costs of hiring a sign-language interpreter. Please visit a DriveTest Centre for details.
- For vision testing, screens can be moved as required, by simply unplugging the device and moving it into the desired location. Cameras can also be adjusted, if needed, by simply moving the device to the desired height.
