The Town of Oakville is implementing a tow truck licensing by-law this year that will regulate towing prices on private property and ensure that only licensed tow truck owners and vehicle storage yards operate in Oakville.

If you are a tow truck owner or operate a vehicle storage yard, you will be required to obtain a licence in 2020 and renew it annually to operate in Oakville.

A draft by-law is being presented to Council at the meeting on June 25.

Why tow truck licensing?

Tow truck companies provide an essential service in our community. Licensing will help ensure that residents have safe, consistent and reliable options after a collision or breakdown or when their vehicle is towed from private property.
