CVOR Training

The Ministry of Transportation expects all carriers/companies to provide CVOR training to their drivers under the Highway Traffic Act in relation to:

  • Operating a commercial motor vehicle
  • Hours of operation and service
  • Daily Vehicle inspections reports listing defects as major or minor
  • Load Securement

The CVOR system plays a role in the Ministry of Transportation's ongoing commitment to keeping roads safe. These three separate and apart training programs promote the safe operation of trucks and buses on Ontario's roadways. Industrial Safety Trainers, and our dedicated team of professionals is committed to assisting commercial vehicle owners, operators and carriers meet their compliance needs. See below for additional information on the training programs that constitute CVOR training. These sessions can be scheduled separately or in tandem.
