Driving Your Car In Canada

canadaDriving in Canada is not much different than driving in the United States; Canada is cris-crossed with an extensive network of roads and highways. The limitations for driving in Canada are much like our own in that you will be required to have a valid driver’s license in order to drive a rented vehicle there.

If you are planning on staying in Canada for any length of time that is less than a year, you will not need to acquire a Canadian driver’s license. If you plan on staying in Canada a year or longer, you will need to transition to a Canadian license. Transitioning from a license from anywhere in the United States that has been in your possession for two years or longer, procuring a Canada license is only a matter of exchanging the one you have for the new one.

Unlike the United Kingdom, Canadians drive on the same side of the street as we do. They also have road markings and signs that are familiar to United States residents. This will make transitioning or just visiting Canada and driving their streets easy to get accustomed to. If you are going there to visit, you may want to do a little research into their traffic laws as there are bound to be some discrepancies.
