Interesting, you would think that being a member would do it
Now, is this card issued to other than Reg Members?. What I am asking is: do Reg Members need to have it to be able to operate or is this issued to certain non-members.

Well considering PVO is part of basic constable training.....

Its not all that unusual, lot of large organizations that have large fleets will tend to have their own "inhouse" licence/driving exam of some sort. Basically for insurance reasons.

Thanks, I was just wondering.

Silly to ask but... Operate, does this mean drive in general? Or operate code.

would it look bad applying to this, if you are in the process with Toronto Police, even though they aren't hiring?

I was thinking something similar, except that I'm not in the process anymore but will likely be re-applying when they hire again. I don't think it's a bad move at all, it should be good experience dealing with the public. And probably a lot of transferable skills, no?

I am in the process with TPS (well frozen in the process) and I submitted an application for this position.

I don't think it says anything bad, it says you want work with TPS.

If the lights are Amber, why do they need Blue Card?
Is it just the training thing?

Yep, it's just to say that you're proficient in the operation of a car or motorcycle to Toronto Police standards.
