** UPCOMING: Attention Tow Truck Operators

Effective January 1, 2017, all tow truck operators must possess a valid CVOR certificate.

This applies to tow trucks, including:

  • A motor vehicle commonly known as a tow truck;
  • A commercial motor vehicle with a flatbed that can tilt to load and that is used exclusively to tow or transport other motor vehicles; and
  • A motor vehicle that is designed, modified, configured or equipped so that it is capable of towing other motor vehicles.

All tow truck operators should allow sufficient time to prepare for and obtain a CVOR certificate, before the requirement comes into force on January 1, 2017.

When submitting an application, write the word “TOWING” at the top of the CVOR application or renewal forms to receive updates relevant to the towing industry in the future.
