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:

Charge CVOR 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

I was really very appreciative of the efforts of Traffic paralegal services (Caledon office) and the way they managed my traffic ticket. I spoke to Leanne after being issued with an unfair traffic ticket by a belligerent, somewhat biased police officer who was overbearing and seemed to take pleasure in exercising his inflated sense of power! I called the Caledon office in a distraught state and explained my particular situation. I felt truly "heard" by Leanne who was very understanding, helpful and took the time to listen to my story offering useful feedback in a comforting and kind manner. I was at risk of not only a $600 plus fine but also demerit points and a sure increase in insurance if I was charged not to mention my clean record being smeared!Traffic paralegal services were professional, updated me regularly and my charges and fine were withdrawn leaving my record intact! I was mostly grateful for Leanne who took into account my particular situation and the circumstances of the issuance of the traffic ticket and took it in hand to fight my case. Very satisfied with the outcome and the pleasant hassle free process thanks to Leanne and her team!

My experience was really disappointing. I paid double the cost of my ticket for their services, only to be left with the same offer the prosecution gave me on day 1. Nothing was reduced, not the charge or points so it was a waste of money for me. Everyone I interacted with at Traffic Paralegal Services was nice but I wasn't paying $700 for that... at the most, they delayed the case a few months but overall, I wouldn't recommend.

My family and I have used Traffic Paralegal Services a few times and each time we have been extremely satisfied with the level of service we have recieved. All of the staff have been exceptionally wonderful, professional and courteous. Any questions or concerns we have, have been addressed promptly and the staff are in constant communication with you. This helps alleviate any additional stress one may have as they truly take on your case and manage all hearings, court dates and represent you! A special shout out to Volodymyr who represented both my Mom and brother and saved them their demerit points and convictions. He has done an exceptional job pleading their cases. Their rates are beyond fair for the time and efforts they put in to resolving your case. I would highly recommend Traffic Paralegal Services and would use them in the future again if needed.
