The Conviction Code Table lists offences applicable to commercial motor vehicle operators and their drivers.
An officer may lay a charge against a driver or carrier/operator. Convictions resulting from charges are recorded on a carrier's CVOR abstract with point values based on severity. Point values have been determined in consultation with a wide range of industry/insurance/provincial and federal committee representatives/predictive studies. The primary objective is to monitor the safety performance of carriers most likely to become involved in future collisions. Point values for those convictions that have occurred in Ontario can be found on the Ontario Convictions sheet.
Convictions for offences that occurred in other Canadian jurisdictions are received by MTO via a data exchange system with a CCMTA code and a general description of the offence grouped in this code category. Only those out of province convictions that occurred after April 1, 2007, will appear on a CVOR carrier abstract. These convictions groupings can be found on the CCMTA Equivalency sheet.
All convictions that are administrative in nature are zero pointed.
