Senior Driver Renewal Program

Changes to the Senior Driver Renewal Program

You can download information about changes to MTO's Senior Driver Licence Renewal Program in one of 18 languages.

Ontario's senior driver programs aim to keep seniors driving for as long as they can safely do so.

Once drivers reach 80 years of age, every two years they must:

  • Take a vision test
  • Undergo a driver record review
  • Participate in a 45-minute Group Education Session (GES)
  • During the GES, complete two, brief, non-computerized in-class screening assignments
  • If necessary, take a road test

You can download the in-class screening practice test (part of the education session) in one of the 18 languages (PDFs).

This entire renewal process will take a total of about 90 minutes.

Please note that this as is a licence renewal program. Existing and valid licenses will be not revoked but all requirements need to be met before your licence is renewed. Once you’ve completed the group session and screening components you may be asked to take a road test or submit medical information from your doctor.

Should you have questions about the new program, please call 1-800-396-4233 or GTA: 416-235-3579.
