AVIS Car Rental in AVIS Canada

Driver's Licence in Canada

Driver's licence

To legally rent and drive a car in Canada, you’ll need a driver’s licence issued by the government of your province or territory and should be held for at least 2 years. If you have a valid licence from your home country, you’ll probably be able to use this to drive in Canada for a short time after you arrive.

 

A valid driver's license is:

A license issued by a Canadian province, territory.

A license issued by a US state, territory or possession.
A license issued by a country that is a signatory to the 1949 Geneva Convention on Road Traffic or the 1943 Convention on the Regulation of Inter-American Automobile Traffic.
A license issued by a country that has a reciprocal agreement with Canada.

 

Tips

U.S. renters must provide valid license, temporary license in cases of lost, stolen or expired license, and chauffeur's license issued in the U.S. or a U.S. territory.

 

If your domestic driving licence is not in English, an International Driving Permit (IDP/IDL) or an official translation in English is required when you drive in Canada. Please note that an International Driving Permit (often referred to as an International Driving Licence) does not replace the requirement for a regular driving licence. And you must carry your current overseas driver’s licence, IDP or translation with you all the time when driving in Canada.

 

Age requirement

The minimum driver age for renting a car at a Canadian rental office is 21 years old (age may vary by state and car category). If you're 21-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee. If you're 65 or older, you may have to pay a senior driver fee.
