The Ontario government has announced the cancellation of the Drive Clean program for passenger vehicles effective April 1, 2019.
In the near term, the heavy duty diesel program will continue in its current form. Testing of heavy duty vehicles using other fuels such as gasoline, propane and natural gas will also end on April 1, 2019. The government will be consulting this fall on options to redesign the heavy duty program to make it more effective.
More details about the new program for heavy-duty vehicles will be available in the coming months including whether we are going to open up applications for new Heavy Duty Facilities.
The heavy-duty diesel emission testing program is currently fully subscribed, and the ministry will not be approving applications for new facilities at this time, except under special circumstances, such as parts of Ontario lacking adequate program coverage. All applications that otherwise meet program requirements will be placed on a waiting list. Applicants are strongly encouraged not to incur any expenses, e.g. purchase of emission testing equipment, until your application has been approved by the Director.
