Drivers From Other Areas

If you are a licensed driver from a country other than Canada, the United States, Japan, Korea, Austria, Germany or Switzerland, you must meet the Ontario driver medical requirements, pass a vision test and a test of your knowledge of the rules of the road and traffic signIf you have acceptable proof of two or more years of driving experience, you may take the Level Two road test to earn full driving privileges. If you do not pass this road test, you will get a Level One (car or motorcycle) licence and may immediately schedule a Level One road test.

If you have less than two years of driving experience, you will be placed in Level One. However, if you have acceptable proof that you have the driving experience required for Level One, you can immediately schedule a Level One road test to enter Level Two.

If you do not have the driving experience required for Level One, you will stay in Level One until you do. You can then take the Level One road test to enter Level Two.
A driver's licence from another area is considered acceptable proof if it shows you have the driving experience required. If it does not, you will need to show documents that do.
If you do not have acceptable proof of your driving experience, you will start at the beginning of Level One as a new driver.
