CVOR tickets

Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration System

The Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration (CVOR) is a unique system established in Ontario to ensure the safe operation of commercial motor vehicles. Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration holders are responsible for all safety-related aspects of operating commercial vehicles, including adherence to traffic laws.

If you are operating a commercial motor vehicle in Ontario, you will need a valid Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration certificate. However, along with the privileges of operating these vehicles come responsibilities and potential risks such as receiving CVOR tickets.

Traffic Tickets for Commercial Motor Vehicles, Drivers and Carriers

For operators of commercial vehicles, CVOR tickets are far more than a simple inconvenience; they are a direct threat to your business operations. Not only do they carry potential fines, but they also increase the likelihood of a poor Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration rating which could, in turn, lead to increased inspections or even the suspension of your CVOR certificate.

CVOR traffic tickets may be issued for various infractions such as speeding, unsafe lane changes, logbook violations, and equipment violations, among others.

Impact on Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration Points

Unlike regular drivers, commercial drivers must consider an additional penalty in case of traffic violations: CVOR points for speeding or other infractions. Each offence carries a specific weight and will add a certain number of CVOR demerit points to your record.

Accumulating too many CVOR points can result in a poor CVOR rating, leading to heightened scrutiny from the Ministry of Transportation, increased insurance premiums, and even the potential loss of business contracts.

Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration Penalties

The penalties for CVOR violations can be severe, including heavy fines, license suspensions, increased insurance rates, and even imprisonment in severe cases. Therefore, fighting CVOR tickets in Ontario is not only about avoiding fines but also about protecting your livelihood and reputation.

Common Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration Tickets carry the following Points:

Speeding* 1-10 km/h over the limit 2
Speeding 11-20 km/h over the limit 3
Speeding 21 or more km/h over the limit 5
