Collision Reporting Centres

For latest changes to police service delivery, please visit our COVID-19 page

The Collision Reporting Centres of Toronto are partnerships between the Toronto Police Service, insurance providers and private enterprise. The concept of self reporting collisions is the main function of the Collision Reporting Centres. Drivers involved in property damage collisions MUST report within twenty four hours to a Collision Reporting Centre, where a police officer inspects the vehicle damage.

The driver then completes a simplified government collision report form which is checked by a police officer. Once the reports are completed, drivers may make use of the Insurance Services offered at the Centres. Insurance providers can be contacted by phone at the site. This allows for the timely reporting of the collision to the insurance provider and an early resolution of the claim process.

This simplified process is a service to the driving public. Property damage collisions are handled in an efficient manner with more consideration given to the convenience of the driver and the time restraints on a busy population.

There are two Toronto Centres to serve you:

113 Toryork Drive, North York
Monday to Friday: open from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.
Saturday/Sunday: open from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.

39 Howden Road, Scarborough
Monday to Friday: open from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.

The 2021 standard fee for any vehicle, with a GVWR of 3775kg or less, towed from a collision scene is $261.38 (plus applicable taxes). This rate is established by Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 545 and applies for towing directly to the Collision Reporting Center or the first destination specified by the hirer. This does not cover any subsequent tow that is needed. If the vehicle is towed directly to a Collision Reporting Centre, this fee is paid directly by the Collision Reporting Centre and there is no need to pay the tow truck driver.
