Great question asked of me recently, is the CVOR number required to be displayed on the truck? Hi, I'm Chris Harris, Safety Dawg. If you like this video, give it a thumbs up and perhaps consider leaving me a comment such as a great question like this and consider subscribing. I know that the C B R number didn't have to be on the truck, but I wanted to see what MTO would tell me, and here was their response with my comments. They said carriers are required to have the name of the registered owner on each side of the truck. If the gross weight of that truck is 8,164 kilograms or more. So 8,164 kilograms or more, you've gotta have the name on each side of the truck. You are not required to display the CVOR number, however you can, if you want the name on each side of the truck must be the registered owner or the operator legal name, such as the incorporated name, if they are the plate holder. As an example, M t O says 1 23. Ontario Inc owns and operates the truck, but they are in the phone, book and advertiser business as Sam's Trucking, the incorporated name, 1 23 Ontario Inc. Needs to be on the truck in order to comply with the Highway Traffic Act. To satisfy the legislation, the company can brand Sam's Trucking in large font and include 1 23 Ontario Inc. In small font on both sides of the truck. If you are leasing long term, for example from Ryder or Penske will have their name on each side of the truck, almost the size of a business card. However, must be clear and legible and the long term leaser will have, will be. Able to advertise their name. In short, the name must be on the side of the truck, must match the plate portion and the registered owner name. Therefore, if it is two companies on each side of the truck, there's gonna be two names. If, however, the plate portion registered owner's name are the same, whatever is on the registration must be on the vehicle and operating as however, can still be included, but it's not a requirement of the act. So there, just to recap real quick, if you think of it this way, if your gross vehicle weight or actual vehicle weight is more than 8,164 kilograms, you are required to display the name. So the name on the plate portion and the name on the ownership portion must be on each side of the truck if they are different than the plate holder. All right.
