The government is cancelling a large amount of final road driving tests due to concerns of heavy traffic and congestion during the Pan Am Games.
According to the Toronto Star, a total of 1,137 tests have to be rescheduled in an attempt to keep traffic moving.
Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca confirmed to the Star that the decision was made in early June, with letters sent and phone calls made to notify those affected to arrange another time.
They say 150 test-takers have not responded, but slots are being set aside so they don’t get bumped to the back of the queue.
Transportation officials were aiming to have a 20% traffic reduction during the Games, with an emphasis on public transit.
There are no fee’s for switching or re-scheduling appointments, and some tests were added to the schedule at a location in Oshawa. That location will be opening on two Saturdays to accommodate, when it’s usually not open.
