New Tow Truck Licensing By-law now in effect

Thursday, January 16, 2020

Effective January 1, 2020, tow trucks and motor vehicle storage yards require a license to operate in Oakville. You can check the back of the tow truck for a Town of Oakville Licence plate and current sticker to ensure the company is licensed to operate in Oakville.

The tow truck licensing by-law will help ensure consumer protection and promote safety within the industry. The by-law will also regulate the fees charged when a vehicle is towed from private property without the owner’s consent.

Owners of private lots have the right to remove unauthorized vehicles parked on their property.

Please check for signage and regulations when parking your vehicle.

Storage fees start after the first 24 hours of storage.
