CVOR Safety Ratings (CSR)

CVOR Safety Ratings (CSR)

Carrier Safety Rating is essentially a public label that is assigned by the Registrar of Motor vehicles to commercial vehicle operators on the basis of their company’s safety record, which includes collisions, convictions, inspections and facility audits.

Carrier Safety Rating is an indicator of carrier’s performance and is available to the public. Therefore, the score can directly impact your business promotion to potential customers. Insurance companies, financial institutions and shippers also use this information to make an informed decision. It is, therefore, important that your CVOR score is maintained high. There are different CVOR safety rating that may be assigned to your company on the basis of the vehicle/operator performance:

a) Excellent Safety Rating:

It is assigned to a carrier if it has:

  • Been in operation from at least 24 months in Ontario and holds a valid CVOR certificate
  • Overall violation rate of less than or equal to 15% of overall threshold.
  • Collision rate of less than or equal to 10% of the collision threshold.
  • The carrier has been audited and given an excellent score

Even after the excellent rating is assigned, the carrier needs to ensure that the overall violation rate doesn’t exceed the 20% of overall CVOR threshold and collision rate doesn’t exceed the 15% of collision threshold. Else, the rating may be reviewed again and downgraded.

b) Satisfactory Safety Rating:

It is assigned to a carrier if it has:

  • Been in operation from at least 6 months in Ontario and holds a valid CVOR certificate.
  • An on-road performance level of no more than 70% of its overall CVOR threshold.
  • The carrier has been audited and assigned a passing score

Satisfactory-Unaudited Safety Rating

A carrier is assigned a Satisfactory-Unaudited Safety Rating if it has not been audited yet but maintains an on-road performance level of no more than 70% of its overall CVOR threshold.

Conditional Safety Rating

It is assigned to a carrier upon:

  • An on-road performance level of greater than 70% of its overall CVOR threshold.
  • Failure of the facility audit.
  • Expiry of a suspension or plate seizure.

Unsatisfactory Safety Rating

When a carrier/operator has too many traffic tickets, collisions and audit violations then an unsatisfactory safety rating may be issued by the Ministry of Transportation which may result in suspension or cancellation of their operating privileges.

Since these ratings directly impact your business and operations, you can appeal the sanctions and request an audit if you feel you have improved on the objectionable points.

At this critical time, we stand along with you to guide you through the ways to improve your ratings and hear the appeals so that you can regain your peace of mind and continue doing what you do the best – business.
