Mobile driver testing services resuming – Manitoba Public Insurance

Starting today, MPI will resume booking appointments for mobile driver testing services throughout Manitoba.

MPI’s mobile testing units offer limited driver testing services on a scheduled basis to communities without an MPI service centre. As with all driver testing services, mobile testing was suspended due to COVID-19 in March.

Customers are able to view available locations and the driver licence class tests and dates offered here. In order to increase overall appointment availability, MPI has permanently consolidated a number of mobile testing locations. At this time, northern remote sites will not resume testing, however, future planning for these locations is in progress.

How to book

Similar to booking knowledge and road test appointments at MPI service centres, customers eligible for mobile testing sites can do so in the following ways:

  • Online: Customers are encouraged to book Class 5 and 6 road tests through MPI’s Online Services.
  • Over the phone: Customers who either cannot or do not wish to visit an Autopac agent or service centre, can call their Autopac agent to book a test.
  • In person: As always, road tests can also be booked in person at Autopac agents or MPI Service Centres.

COVID-19 requirements

As with all of MPI’s driving testing services during COVID-19, procedures have been updated for the protection of both customers and staff. Customers can find the full list of requirements here.

Changes to mobile testing locations

As a result of a recent program review based on demand and optimal testing routes, MPI has made changes to the communities where mobile testing will be offered going forward.

Mobile testing will now be offered in the following communities:

  • Altona
  • Ashern
