Driver Examiner - General Application

Department Operations DTC

Position Type Varied Reference No. 2014-606

At DriveTest, we are always accepting general applications for key front-line positions. While most of our hiring occurs in the spring, we accept applications year-round and keep applications on file for 6 months.


Serco Canada Inc. operates all the DriveTest Centres across Ontario on behalf of the Ministry of Transportation. As a driver examiner with Serco Canada Inc., you will be based out of one of our 55 Ontario DriveTest Centres. If you are a positive and professional team player who enjoys working with the public in a high energy environment, rewarding job opportunities await you at Serco Canada Inc.


Driver examiners are responsible for evaluating members of the public at various stages of the driver’s licensing process. Driver examiners must have excellent time management and organizational skills and exercise superior judgment skills. We require individuals who can work independently, meet deadlines, and strive to achieve customer satisfaction in all aspects of their work.


Wage rates for driver examiner positions range from $21.89 to $27.85 per hour, depending on the position classification level and the number of years an employee has been in the role. Employees are eligible for a partial benefits package if they work an average of more than 25 hours per week, and a full benefits package if they work an average of more than 30 hours per week.


The majority of employees work only during daytime hours, although occasional evening and weekend work may be required to address any backlogs that arise. Employee hours vary based on customer demand. The summer is our busy season, so employees work full-time hours from June to September, generally. The winter is our slow season, so we reduce employee hours to reflect the lower volumes, generally.
