Road tests to resume in July

The Government of Yukon’s Motor Vehicles Branch will resume offering regular road tests as of July 2.

As Yukon enters Phase 2 of A Path Forward: Yukon’s plan for lifting COVID-19 restrictions, regular driver testing will resume three days a week, from Tuesday to Thursday.

To access testing for Class 1 to 5 licences, drivers are required to:

  • thoroughly clean the interior of their vehicle prior to the test;
  • disinfect all surfaces that might be touched by the driver examiner;
  • maintain physical distancing of two metres whenever possible; and
  • wear a mask throughout testing.

The first priority upon resuming services will be to address commercial and regular driver testing that was postponed due to the pandemic. Motor Vehicles staff will be contacting affected individuals to schedule new tests.

New driving tests can be booked by contacting the Motor Vehicles Branch at 667-8743 or email road.tests@gov.yk.ca.

Quick facts 
  • Since mid-March, the Motor Vehicles office has only conducted road tests for critical and essential services workers. Regular road tests will resume on July 2.

  • Yukon Motor Vehicles is the only motor vehicles office in Canada that continued to offer regular services throughout the pandemic.
