Commercial vehicle operators in Ontario must have a valid Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration (CVOR) certificate and carry a copy. The CVOR system monitors commercial carrier safety to improve road safety for all road users.
CVOR OPERATOR RESPONSIBILITIES
A CVOR operator (carrier) is the person responsible for the operation of a commercial motor vehicle. Operators are responsible for all the drivers and vehicles in their operation, including:
- the conduct of the driver
employing qualified and licensed drivers
monitoring the safety performance of drivers, including hours of service
resolving driver safety issues when they are identified
- the mechanical safety condition of the vehicle
- keeping vehicles in good, safe condition at all times
- ensuring that daily and annual/semi-annual inspections are completed
the shipping of goods or passengers in the vehicle
- ensuring load security
keeping records on file (e.g. vehicle repairs, kilometres travelled per year, annual inspection reports, etc.)
How CVOR Works
The CVOR system monitors an operator’s safety record over a 2-year period.
The CVOR record contains information such as:
- operator information (e.g. fleet size, kilometres travelled, commodity transported, overall violation rate, Safety Rating)
- reportable collisions
- Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) safety inspections
ministry interventions (e.g. letters, interviews, audits and sanctions)
- The CVOR certificate identifies the operator and contains a unique 9-digit ID number. The certificate (or a copy) must be carried in each commercial motor vehicle operated under the CVOR certificate.
- Operators must surrender the certificate when requested by an MTO enforcement officer or police officer for inspection purposes.
Interventions and sanctions
- a fleet limitation
- plate seizure
- suspension or cancellation of a operator’s privileges

Attention Tow Truck Operators
All tow truck operators require 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.
If you only operate tow trucks, you must tell DriveTest staff you are a tow truck operator prior to writing the CVOR test. After you have fulfilled the application requirements and passed the test, your CVOR certificate will be sent to you.
I shopped around with a few known Traffic Ticket Paralegals and chose POINTTS™ Traffic Tickets because they listened to me and gave me clear options.

I will recommend POINTTS™ to anyone who has received a Traffic Ticket and wants to fight it.
