Proof of vaccination or negative test required for SGI road tests starting Oct. 25

Starting October 25th, SGI will require proof of full vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test for anyone who wishes to take a road test for their driver’s licence.

“Providing proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is now standard practice to access many businesses, services, and venues,” Penny McCune, Chief Operating Officer for the Auto Fund, said in a statement released by SGI.

According to numbers recently published by the Saskatchewan Health Authority, young people are over-represented among those who are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated. Over the past 12 months, half of those taking an SGI road test were age 19 or under, and 38 per cent were between the ages of 20 and 30.

Unlike other customer-facing services SGI offers, customers and driver examiners participating in a road test are in close quarters in an enclosed air space within a vehicle. This new requirement helps further reduce the risk of COVID transmission, on top of SGI’s existing safe work procedures.

In accordance with provincial government direction, SGI employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide proof of a recent negative test.
