Effective January 1st, 2017, all two truck operators will be required to possess a valid Commercial Vehicle Operators Registration (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.
These changes were brought forward following significant government consultations administered by Deloitte that involved AMCTO and other municipal partners that has now led to greater provincial oversight of the towing industry.
