CVOR Review Panel

Under the auspices of IHSA, the Panel will review appeals resulting from the Ministry of Transportation's CVOR accident monitoring system.

  • The Panel's main purpose will be to make impartial CVOR accident point determinations from the facts submitted in an appeal.
  • Only reportable accidents that occurred within Ontario would be eligible for appeal consideration.
  • Appeals will be limited to accidents in which charges were not laid or to accidents where charges were laid but did not result in a conviction.
  • $750.00 FEE to have appeal reviewed

The Panel is an unbiased, neutral, highly-qualified third party. The Panel will maintain complete confidentiality.

 
NOTE

The CVOR Accident Point Review Panel will determine whether the accident was preventable or non-preventable based on evidence supplied. The fact that a CVOR charge was dismissed by the courts only allows for appeal. The case must be determined to be non-preventable by the Panel in order to have the CVOR points removed. If you have any questions before proceeding with the appeal, please contact Carol Whitman, Executive Assistant at 905-625-0100 Ext 7946.

 

Dear CVOR Holder:

Thank you for your interest in our CVOR Accident Point Review Panel.

IHSA is an independent, impartial, qualified third party who will administer this process.

To follow, please see the appeal procedure and a listing of necessary documentation we require to accurately review your appeal. To make application, please submit a signed copy of the Appeal Procedure sheet as well as any and all documentation requirements listed.

The Panel will maintain complete confidentiality. The MTO is advised of any cases under consideration. After 30 days of an appeal decision, all documentation will be destroyed.

Only reportable accidents that occurred within Ontario would be eligible for appeal consideration. Where charges were not laid, the request must be made within six months of the accident appearing on the CVOR record. Where charges were laid but did not result in a conviction, the request must be made between 30 to 180 days after the court disposition of the charge. The following court decisions will qualify: Acquitted, Dismissed, Withdrawn, Quashed or Stayed. Divergence may also qualify.

The outcome of the appeal will not be reflected on the motor vehicle accident report. Only the CVOR record may be affected, as only one factor—assignment of CVOR points—will be reviewed.

A non-refundable fee of $750.00 must be submitted to IHSA at the time documentation is forwarded to the Panel.
