Canadian Drivers license

Description

Canadian Driver’s license

Canadian Drivers license is issued by the government of the province or territory in which the driver is residing. Thus, specific regulations relating to driver’s licenses vary province to province, though overall they are quite similar. All provinces have provisions allowing non-residents to use licenses issued by other provinces and territories, out-of-country licenses, and International Driving Permits. Many provinces also allow non-residents to use regular licenses issued by other nations and countries. Canadian driver’s licenses are also valid in many other countries due to various international agreements and treaties.

Age of eligibility

Canada’s driving age is determined on a province-by-province basis. The age to begin learning is 16 in most provinces. The notable exception is Alberta, where a Learner’s Permit may be obtained at 14 years of age. The provinces use a GDL (Graduated Driver Licensing) system for a standard car and light-truck license to ensure the proficiency of drivers.

The driving age in the various Canadian provinces is:

Alberta
Class 7 (Learner): This permit can be obtained at 14 years of age, and can only be used when a non-probationary licensed driver (Class 5 or above; see below) over the age of 18 accompanies the driver. The fully licensed driver must be sitting in the front passenger seat. A computerized knowledge test requiring a mark of at least 83.3% as well as a vision test must be passed to obtain this license. Restrictions on the Class 7 license include zero blood alcohol content while driving and the inability to drive between midnight and 5 am. Class 7 drivers may operate mopeds without an accompanying driver. A consent form must be signed by a parent or guardian for an applicant under the age of 18.
Class 6 (Motorcycle): This permit allows an operator to drive a motorcycle without a supervising rider. The minimum age to obtain this license is 16. A Class 7 license must have been held for one year before it is possible to apply for a Class 6 license. A learner holding a Class 7 license must not drive a motorcycle during the night (defined as one hour after sunset, until 5 am or one hour before sunrise, whichever is later). Learners with a Class 7 or Class 5 Probationary license may not operate (or sit on) a motorcycle with a blood alcohol content greater than zero. Learners with a Class 5 (non-probationary) or higher license (Class 1, 2, 3, or 4) have no restrictions except that a supervising rider must be present.
Class 5-GDL (Probationary): This license can be obtained once a driver has held a Class 7 license (Learner’s Permit) for at least one year without suspension. In addition, the driver must be 16 years of age before he or she may apply for this license. This license allows one to drive without an accompanying fully licensed driver. However, this license has more restrictions than a non-probationary license. Fewer demerit points are allowed and drivers must have zero blood alcohol content while driving. A probationary license does not qualify the license-holder to serve as an accompanying driver for a Class 7 driver. A basic road test is required to obtain this license.
Class 5 (Full, Non-GDL Driver’s License): This license can be obtained after having held the Class 5 Probationary license for two years without suspension. The minimum age to obtain this license is 18. An advanced road test must be passed to obtain this license. A driver with this license is referred to as a “fully-licensed driver”.
Class 4: This permit allows the operator to drive a taxi, ambulance, or bus with seats for up to 24 passengers.
Class 3: This permit allows an operator to drive a motor vehicle with 3 or more axles, or a motor vehicle with 3 or more axles pulling a trailer with one or more axles (assuming the trailer does not have air brakes).
Class 2: This permit allows an operator to operate any bus, in addition to the vehicles permitted by holders of Class 3/4/5 licenses.
Class 1: This permit allows an operator to operate any motor vehicle except a motorcycle (as motorcycles always require the Class 6 license specifically).

Note that drivers wishing to upgrade to a Class 1, 2, 3, or 4 license must possess a Class 5 (non-probationary) license and be at least 18 years of age to apply.

Endorsement

Air Brakes: Air Brake endorsements are required for any driver of a vehicle with an air only braking system or a combination air and hydraulic braking system. Any driver in Alberta may obtain an Air Brake endorsement after completing an approved Air Brake course, which includes a practical exam, and writing the written knowledge test at the registry. On all classes, except Class 1, the endorsement will be represented as a Q on the license. It is not shown on the Class 1 license because all Class 1 drivers licensed in Alberta are required to have attended an approved Air Brake course; a Class 1 operator’s license cannot be obtained without it. Note: The written knowledge test for Class 1 can be taken prior to having attended an Air Brake course; however, driver training can’t commence until after the course is completed.
Transportation of Dangerous Goods: TDG is NOT an endorsement placed on an operator license, but rather is required training received generally from the employer for anyone who offers for transport, transports, or handles dangerous goods. Both employees and self-employed persons must have a Dangerous Goods training certificate to transport Dangerous Goods. It is employer-offered due to the wide variety of Dangerous Goods that may be transported, so the training is employer and Good specific.

British Columbia

Class 8L (Motorcycle Learner’s Permit): This permit can be first obtained at age 16, just as the Class 7L. There are many restrictions until the rider passes a “Motorcycle Skills Test”, which is conducted on a parking lot and involves basic maneuvering skills. After this test, the rider can ride alone, with much fewer restrictions.
Class 7L (Learner’s Permit): This permit can first be obtained at age 16, and requires a person under the age of 19 to obtain consent from a parent or legal guardian. To obtain this permit, one must take a knowledge test, which requires 80% to pass. A person holding this license must be accompanied by a fully licensed driver over 25. They may have one additional passenger besides the supervisor. The driver must maintain a blood-alcohol count of zero (i.e. none in their blood), display a large ‘L’ decal on the back of their vehicle, have no more than two passengers (including the supervisor), and must not drive between 12AM and 5AM. The 7L license is good for two years. After 12 months, the driver may take a 45-minute driving test to advance to the next level.
Class 7 (Novice Permit), also called the “N” stage: This permit may be obtained once a driver is 17, after successful completion of the Class 7L driving test. A Class 7N license is good for five years, and the stage takes a minimum of two years to complete (unless the person graduates from an accredited driving course, which reduces the length of time required to 18 months). Drivers must display a large ‘N’ decal on the back of their vehicle. Restrictions include 0 blood alcohol and a limit of one passenger (the limit being waived for anyone in the immediate family, and entirely if a supervisor over the age of 25 with a valid Class 5 (or above) license is present.) Any infraction of the traffic law by the possessor of a Class 7 license can result in a prohibition, after which the possessor must begin the Class 7N program from the start. After two years with the Class 7N, the license-holder may take the 45-minute Class 5 road test. Successful completion of this test grants a Class 5 passenger vehicle license.
Class 6 (Motorcycle License): This license allows the holder to operate a motorcycle with no restrictions.
Class 5 (Full Vehicle License): This is a full passenger-vehicle license. It has no additional restrictions, unlike the Class 7 licenses.
Class 4 (Commercial) restricted: Permits the holder to operate taxis, limousines, ambulances, special buses used to transport people with disabilities and other special vehicles—also permits the holder to operate vehicles in Class 5. Minimum age to obtain is 19.
Class 4 (Commercial) unrestricted: In addition to the vehicles listed for Class 4 restricted above, this permits the holder to operate buses with a maximum seating capacity of 25, including the driver.
Class 3 (Commercial, heavy trucks): Permits the holder to operate trucks with more than two axles, including dump trucks and large tow trucks — also permits the holder to operate vehicles in Class 5. Minimum age to obtain is 18.

British Columbia has been using a GDL system since August 1998. The program was last revised in October 2003, which involved large changes to the time it took to acquire a full license (previously, a person could complete the Class 7L stage in as little as 3 months, and the Class 7N in 12, and no passenger limit was enforced above Class 7L). British Columbia requires all new resident drivers to take a driving knowledge test and a road test in order to get a BC driver’s license, except for people holding a valid driver’s license from other Canadian jurisdictions, Austria, Australia, France, Germany, Guernsey, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, or the United States.

In 2006, Ontario passed legislation that would allow a court to suspend the license of high school dropout until they turn 18. But the Act did not receive royal assent until December 2009 and is now in effect. Canadian Drivers license for sale

Traffic violation convictions usually come with demerit points against your license. While the demerit points have no official impact on insurance rates, most insurance providers will increase the rate charged to a driver in response to demerit points. The demerit points are used by the Ministry of Transportation to determine license suspensions due to repeated traffic violations (Effects on Ontario insurance rates and eligibility are typically measured by the number of tickets received in recent years, rather than the associated points).

Drivers from out of province must obtain an Ontario driver’s license if staying more than 90 days. New residents of Ontario may only apply after residing in the province for 60 days.

Starting June 2009, Ontario began issuing Enhanced Drivers Licenses (EDLs) as an option to residents upon request. These license while almost visually identical to regular drivers licenses contained 2 distinct differences. The first being a machine readable code printed on the back of the card (visually similar to the same coding on a Canadian Passport). The second: an embedded RFID microchip. These changes were made in response to the heightened security precautions at US land border crossings. The changes allow for quicker procedures at a border crossing as well as a cheaper alternative to a Canadian Passport. Canadian Drivers license for sale

Department of National Defense
The Department of National Defense issues a special driving license known as DND 404 to Canadian Forces military personnel driving CF vehicles or vehicles rented by DND, and the issue is contingent on possession of a provincial driving licence and passing of a defensive driving course. Between 2011 and 2012, all DND 404 permits were replaced with modern photo ID cards. Provincial law enforcement agencies do enforce highway traffic laws against such permit holders, and DND 404 permits can be accordingly suspended. Buy Canadian Drivers license

License suspensions and revocations

Although license suspensions and revocations are generally a matter for the territorial and provincial government departments of motor vehicles, some driving offenses (e.g. dangerous driving and impaired driving) are criminal offenses, set down in Canada’s Criminal Code. Prison sentences are often given to repeat offenders and to drivers convicted of causing death or grievous bodily harm via Criminal Code driving offenses. Buy Canadian Drivers license
