Plenary and Serco Inc., working as a consortium, have announced that they have been awarded the 10-year contract to provide Driver Examination Services for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO).

The contract will generate an estimated $800 million in shared revenues over the contract term.

The successful bidders will provide application processing and the delivery of vision, knowledge and road testing across all license categories. Serco will oversee approximately 575,000 knowledge tests and 675,000 road tests annually at 95 testing centers across Ontario. Under the new contract, Serco’s role will be expanded to include upgrading and enhancing information technology solutions to improve processing, scheduling and the delivery of services to drivers.

“Serco proudly embraces the mission of the Ministry of Transportation to deliver high quality testing services throughout the province,” said Ed Casey, Serco’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Being awarded this re-compete contract will allow Serco to further our support for our client and continue to enhance road user safety throughout Ontario.”

Plenary is the developer, equity investor and debt arranger for the project. In this capacity, Plenary has made significant financial commitments to guarantee the consortium’s service delivery performance for the concession term.

“We are thrilled to be forging a new relationship with MTO and Serco,” said Brian Budden, Senior Vice-President of Plenary . “We look forward to building on our partnership over the next ten years and to ensuring excellence in service delivery and improved technology solutions to benefit Ontario’s drivers and travelers.”
