Canadian Driving Licences

To enquire about obtaining, renewing or replacing a Canadian driving licence, please contact your provincial or territorial licensing office.

United Kingdom / Canada License exchange

An agreement exists on the exchange of driving licenses between the UK and Canada.

Please be advised that unless you can provide proof that you took your Canadian test in a standard transmission vehicle, you will be granted a British license that will only allow you to drive an automatic transmission vehicle.

Further details can be viewed on the GOV.UK website.

Information on IDPs can be found on the Government of Canada’s Travel website.
