Starting July 1, drivers can tow recreational vehicles (RVs) if they have a full class G licence. This will make it easier for Ontarians to travel this summer and save RV owners about $200 in initial licence costs.

Until now, Ontario drivers have needed a class A licence to tow RVs that weigh more than 4,600 kilograms.

With this change, Ontarians can tow and operate RVs with a full class G licence as long as the combined weight of the motor vehicle and RV is not more than 11,000 kilograms; the RV is attached to the motor vehicle by a fifth wheel hook-up; only one vehicle is being towed; the RV meets Transport Canada manufacturing standards; the RV is being towed for personal use only.
