Commercial Vehicle Operator RegistrationOffences Charged Against Operator

Operators of commercial trucks weighing over 4,500kgs. are required to register what is known as Commercial Vehicle Operator's Registration (CVOR) licensing.

Commercial operators, in addition to charges brought against a driver, may be charged for violating by the Highway Traffic Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, among many other laws applicable to roadway users.  Typical CVOR concerns include vehicle fitness, overloading, insecure loadings, lackings within logbooks, improper or expiry of licensing, among other things, and all as additional to the charges against the commercial vehicle driver.  Charges against a CVOR may be laid by a police officer or an Ontario Ministry of Transportation ("MTO") officer for prosecution within the Ontario Court of Justice per the court rules and procedures prescribed within the Provincial Offences Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.33, including the regulations thereto.

You Have Three (3) Traffic Ticket Fighting Options

#1Pay the Ticket/Fine
(Plea of Guilty)
Never Recommended

Paying a traffic ticket is never recommended as payment of the fine will be accepted as an automatic admission of guilt.  This will result in a conviction on your driving record for the charge as laid and you will suffer the full consequences which may include demerit points and/or a driver’s licence suspension.  Novice driver’s beware!

#2Request a Meeting
with the Prosecution
Never Recommended

Meeting with the prosecutor is never recommended as you will not be able to obtain a copy of the evidence prior and you will not know the strength of the case against you.  While there may be some form of reduction offered, there is usually little chance to secure a withdrawal regardless of your explanation which will likely do more harm than good.

#3Request a Trial
Always Recommended
Your Best Option

Requesting a trial date is always recommended so that you may request and receive a copy of the evidence.  Only then will you truly be able to determine the strength of the case against you and any possible defences.  Choose DefendCharges.ca to defend you at trial and increase your chances of winning.
