If you come from other province or country, you can use your license for 60 days, after that you have to get a license from Ontario.  You can exchange an out-of-province license for an Ontario license if you come from other province or from a country with an exchange agreement with Ontario.  To do that you need a proof of driving experience in English or French (you can get it from the embassy or consulate office of your country). It Is important to consider that this proof of experience won’t give you the full G license, but will help you to go faster from G1 to G2 license.  For complete information go to:
