Ontario Introducing Online Booking To Exchange Driver’s Licences

ONTARIO-In 2023, Ontario exchanged more than 300,000 out-of-province driver’s licences.

Now, the Ontario government says it is making it easier and more convenient for newcomers to exchange out-of-province and international driver’s licences. Appointments can now be made online at 15 DriveTest locations across the province.

“Ontario is proud to welcome more than 200,000 new residents each year, coming from near and far,” said Prabmeet Sarkaria, Minister of Transportation. “That is why our government is working to make their transition as seamless as possible by making it easier than ever to exchange a driver’s licence, while also reducing wait times and line-ups at DriveTest locations.”

After moving to Ontario, new residents have 60 days to exchange an out-of-province or international driver’s licence for an Ontario driver’s licence. People with valid driver’s licences from countries with reciprocal licence agreements like the United States, Great Britain and Japan, can exchange their licences for an Ontario driver’s licence without undergoing testing.

Newcomers can visit drivetest.ca to book an appointment at one of the following DriveTest locations: Brampton, Downsview, Etobicoke, Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Mississauga, Metro East, Newmarket, Oakville, Orangeville, Oshawa, Ottawa Walkley, Port Union and Windsor.
