New: Schedule Appointments for Select Over-the-Counter Transactions

DriveTest now has the option for customers to schedule appointments for select over-the-counter transactions.

These transactions include:

  • Out of Province Driver
  • Out of Country Driver

To book an appointment for your DriveTest transaction, email your appointment request indicating the transaction type, your country or province or U.S. state of origin, and preferred appointment date (indicating a.m. or p.m.) to LicenceExAppt@drivetest.ca. In response, you will receive an email confirming your appointment information and advising you of the documents required to complete your scheduled transaction. We will make every effort to accommodate your preferred appointment date. If this cannot be accommodated, the next nearest date will be offered.

Note:  This scheduling process is currently only available at the Downsview DriveTest Centre while we assess our customers’ interest in this new initiative.
