If this was to happen to you,

how prepared is your company for this situation? Do you know what the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) is going to be asking? What documentation will they be viewing? Will they be an inspection the trucks and trailers? Let’s go through the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, MTO Audit process.

The officer may ask for a list of your vehicles and drivers’. The person in the uniform has the right to see and view the driver files, maintenance files, collision files, logbook and their audits plus much more. They may also ask for the GPS records, fueling receipts and bridge tolls. The list of items that they can view is very long and extensive.

The audit will take days and in some cases even weeks to complete. The auditor may be at your place of business for this time, with their car parked in front of your offices. Other officers will take the work to the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) offices and perform the work there.
