When you are in a country like Canada, driving your own vehicle is much better than commuting every day. So if you will be moving to the country for work, make sure that you prepare yourself to obtain a Canadian driving license. Doing so will allow you to move around from place to place without any hassle.
Here are several things you should keep in mind to have Driver’s License In Canada:
1) Can I drive in Canada using my Philippine driving license?
The answer is ‘yes’ but for a limited time only.
You can still use your valid Philippine driving license upon your arrival in the country whether it is a professional or a non-professional license. You are allowed to do that for at least 90 days so feel free to drive around as long as your license is in good standing which means you don’t have any pending apprehensions or serious law violations attached to it.
2) Next, pass the Knowledge Test.
Since you already have a driver license, you can already begin your application by taking the knowledge test. This computer-based exam is composed of 30 questions and the challenge here is you need to give at least 24 correct answers to pass it. Each province in Canada has almost the same sets of questions so be sure to do some review before taking the exam.
3) Finally, pass the actual Driving Test.
Once you’ve passed the knowledge test, the next requirement is to prove your skills on the road. This one is the most challenging part since Canadian driving rules are far different from what you are used to in the Philippines. They are much stricter here in the implementation of traffic laws. Make it a point to familiarize yourself with them. Besides, penalties for violations are usually heavy.
