Does anyone know if you can tow an unlicensed/uninsured car (flat tow, or using a dolly) in Ontario? I can't find any reference to it. I've called MTO and get different answers, but they can't point me to the specific law saying yes or no.

I know the vehicle would require functioning brakes and brake/signal lights. That's fine. I have an enclosed car trailer now, and it is licensed, but the insurance is automatically covered by my truck's insurance when it's attached.

Can anyone point to the specific law that says yes or no?

Great forum here. Lots of very interesting information.

Cheers,

Geoff

as-long as the vehicle isn't stolen I think it should be okay

And, if it's stolen, that's not legal?

lol.

Seriously, I was hoping for something a little more official.

What are the different answers you've gotten from the MTO? To me it sounds perfectly legal.

Once they said it's illegal to tow an unregistered/unplated vehicle and the other time they said it's fine.
