Q

Is a Canadian drivers license valid in the US?


A

Yes, a full Canadian license that is current is valid in the US. You may drive with your Canadian license within the borders of the United States due to reciprocal agreements thee USA and Canada have with each other in regards to driver's licenses.

If you plan on staying in the United States for a lengthy period of time you should check with the State in which you plan to remain in to make certain that your license will be valid to drive on for the entirety of your trip. If you become a resident instead of a visitor to the United States then the state in which you reside will normally require you to exchange your Canadian license for a State license.

If you are in need of car insurance for either Canada or a state within the United States, shop here with us for affordable insurance quotes.

    I am a Canadian, and would like to purchase a car in Virginia for use during the winter months. My plan is to bring it home to Ontario for the summer months. Can I buy insurance in Florida that will cover both places?
