Access PEI operating with limited service starting May 12

Select Access PEI locations will open to the public on Tuesday, May 12 with modified service and appropriate public health precautions in place. 

Access PEI locations in Souris, Charlottetown, Summerside and O’Leary will be providing some services open 8:30am – 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. Only individuals receiving service from Access PEI will be given entrance into sites unless they require assistance or have children that need supervision.

Public health measures and safety procedures have been put in place at all locations to protect staff and clients, including reduced waiting room capacity to allow for two-meter physical distancing, enhanced cleaning procedures. 

Where possible Islanders are encouraged to renew their motor vehicle registration online to help reduce the need for in-person service at the Access PEI locations. 

Beginning May 25, commercial vehicle and motorcycle road testing will resume on a limited basis. Highway Safety Division is working with the Chief Public Health Office to develop a plan to allow Class 5 road tests to resume, along with written exams for Beginner`s Permits and Class 5 driver`s license. 

Due to the new procedures put in place at Access PEI locations, Minister Steven Myers has extended the expiry dates of all driver’s licenses, vehicle transfers and registrations until July 6, 2020. 

Islanders are reminded to follow public health guidelines, which include physical distancing at all times and practicing hand hygiene, while at an Access PEI site. Islanders who have recently returned from out-of-province travel, are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 or are generally feeling unwell are asked to refrain from visiting an Access PEI site.
