Canadian Driver's Licence in Germany
German Driver's Licence in Canada
Regulations for driver’s licences vary according to province or territory.
The German driver's licence is recognized in Canada, and can be used for a limited time. However, holders of a German driver's licence who intend to stay in Canada for longer must obtain a Canadian driver's license.
To find out more about getting licenced to drive in Canada, visit the website for the motor vehicle licencing agency in your province or territory.
A German licence can be transcribed and exchanged for a Canadian licence. The German Foreign Mission can issue a driver's licence certificate in English language, which is recognized by the province's driver's licence offices.
