Eligibility to report online

Some collisions cannot be reported online.

The collision must have taken place in Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King Township, Newmarket, Markham or Whitchurch-Stouffville. We ask that collisions be reported within 72 hours.

The following collisions may NOT be reported online:

  • collisions that occurred in Richmond Hill or Vaughan (these can be reported at the Community Resource Centre) or outside of York Region
  • collisions that resulted in injuries of any kind
  • collisions that involve a pedestrian, cyclist or public transportation vehicle
  • collisions that involve a commercial motor vehicle larger than 11,000 kilograms or a commercial motor vehicle transporting dangerous goods
  • collisions that involve a criminal act (e.g. impaired driving, road rage/assault)
  • collisions that occurred on a 400-series highway, such as Highway 427, 400 or 404, as those types of collisions must be reported to the Ontario Provincial Police
  • as indicated in the Highway Traffic Act, a collision involving damage less than $2,000 does not need to be reported to police unless it meets one of the caveats noted above

Before reporting a collision online

Unless you’ve already been provided one by another driver, before submitting an online report, call 1-866-876-5423 to be assigned an incident number. You will need to share this incident number with all other involved drivers.

What you need

Before entering the online form, ensure you have:

  • A clear and legible image of the front of your driver’s licence
  • A clear and legible image (or PDF file) of your insurance slip, including the policy number
  • A clear and legible image of your vehicle ownership from the vehicle involved in the collision; and
  • At least one photo of the resulting damage, or area of collision

Additional requirements

Please ensure you have an active email address so that police can respond to your request to report a collision and provide you with any relevant documents.

Missing or incomplete information will delay the processing of your report.

File attachments must be pdf, jpg, jpeg, png or tif formats only. Files must be 25mb in size or less.

In order to protect your data, you will only be provided 60 minutes to complete this form. After 60 minutes, the information will not be saved.

Report a collision now.

After completing a report

Drivers who submit a collision report online should receive a response from York Regional Police within five business days.

If police require further details or clarification about the information you submitted, an officer will contact you by phone before being notified that the report is complete.

After submitting an online report, drivers should NOT attend a collision reporting centre afterward.
