Canadian driving license and owning a new or used car
To legally drive a car in Canada, you will need a driver’s license. In Canada, provincial and territorial governments issue drivers licenses. With a license you can drive anywhere in Canada. You must have it with you whenever you are driving. If you have a valid license from your home country, you will probably be able to use this to drive in Canada for a short period after you arrive. Check with your provincial or territorial government for details. The process for getting a driver’s license in Canada depends on the province or territory in which you live and on your driving background. You may need to pass a written examination on the rules of the road (study guides are available) and one or two driving tests. You may choose to pay for driving lessons to prepare for the driving tests (you can search online for lessons). Once you have a license, it will have to be renewed periodically (see the expiry date on your license).
Buying a vehicle — either new or used — can be a big thrill; however, there are many things to consider before making a purchase. Before you start looking for a car, van or personal-use truck, think about what you need. Keep in mind the distances you typically travel. Don’t forget that the cost of driving includes maintenance, parking, insurance and fuel, all of which should figure into your budget. In major urban centers, many Canadians find that renting a car only when they need one is more cost-effective than buying a car.
