If you operate a tow truck or vehicle storage company, you must submit your rates to the Ministry of Transportation.

Tow operators, tow truck drivers, and vehicle storage operators require a certificate to provide towing or vehicle storage services in Ontario. You can apply for the certificates online for free starting July 4, 2023.  

As of Jan. 1, 2022, Ontario is  enforcing requirements for commercial vehicle drivers who must use certified electronic logging devices (ELDs) to record their hours of service.

Certain safety exemptions that were in place for tow truck operators ended on December 31, 2022, and new equipment requirements are in force.

You can now renew your heavy commercial licence plates online.
