Hey guys,

My wife and I will be relocating to Toronto soon and are really excited!
We'll be getting a car as my wife needs it to get to her new job.

Just wondered if someone could advise me about driving licences?

I have a full UK driving licence (for 24 years!)
And my wife who is Portuguese has a full Portuguese licence (for 10-15 years)

Do either of us need to exchange or redo a driving test when we arrive?

Thanks in advance,

First off, congratulations on your upcoming move! Here is what I found in regards to your question from the link below:

After you arrive: Transportation - Driving

"Foreign licences

You may be able to use your foreign driver’s licence for a few months after you arrive in Canada, but eventually you will need to take a driving test here to remain licensed. This will include a road test and a knowledge test on the rules of the road. Studying for this test will help you learn about driving in Canada.

The cost of obtaining and renewing your driver’s licence depends on your driving record and where you live in Canada."
