An officer may lay a charge against a driver or carrier/operator. Convictions resulting from charges are recorded on a carrier’s CVOR abstract with point values based on severity. Point values have been determined in consultation with a wide range of industry/insurance/provincial and federal committee representatives/predictive studies. The primary objective is to monitor the safety performance of carriers most likely to become involved in future collisions. Point values for those convictions that have occurred in Ontario can be found on the Ontario Convictions sheet.
Convictions for offences that occurred in other Canadian jurisdictions are received by MTO via a data exchange system with a CCMTA code and a general description of the offence grouped in this code category. Only those out of province convictions that occurred after April 1, 2007 will appear on a CVOR carrier abstract. These convictions groupings can be found on the CCMTA Equivalency sheet.
All convictions that are administrative in nature are zero pointed.
A brief description on the headings that appear on one or both the Ontario Convictions Table and the CCMTA Equivalency Table are found below:

The “Offence Code” on the Ontario Convictions sheet is set out as follows: Act (XXX) Section (XXXXX) Sub-section (XXX) Clause (XXX) Item (XX) When searching you must include all spaces. e.g. HTA section 107 sub 11 would be entered as follows: WITH x SIGNIFYING A SPACE = HTAxx107x11
A “CCMTA Code” is a number assigned by a federal agency committee providing generic coding and categories to ensure the comprehensive exchange of convictions between all Canadian jurisdictions.
The Carrier Category “Carrier Cat” column indicates if there is a reduction to points based on Speed or Weight.
(WT1 – WT2) Overweight convictions will be assigned 3 points, where the amount of the overload is 2,000 kg or more. For overloads identified as less than 2,000 kg, zero points will be assigned.
(SPD) Speeding under – HTA Section 128 – will be pointed as follows: 1-10 km over posted speed limit = 2 points, 11-20 km over = 3 points, for all others greater than 21 km over the posted speed limit = 5 points
The “Carrier Driver C/D/B” column indicates if the convictions could be a CVOR Driver offence, an carrier offence, or both.
