Licensing & Laws

Driving is a privilege, not a right. To earn this privileged – and keep it- drivers are required to be licensed by their provincial or territorial licensing authority and obey traffic laws.

Licensing Authorities

In Canada, issuing drivers’ licenses is a provincial/territorial responsibility.

For more information on licensing where you live, visit the website of your provincial or territorial licensing authority/ click on your province:

Yukon Highways and Public Works >>

Northwest Territories Transportation >>

Government of Nunavut >>

Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) >>

Service Alberta >>

Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) >>

Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) >>

Ontario Ministry of Transportation >>

Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec >>

New Brunswick Department of Public Safety >>

Prince Edward Island Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal >>

Nova Scotia Registry of Motor Vehicles >>

Services Newfoundland and Labrador >>


While each province and territory has its own traffic laws, they are similar across Canada. Police enforce laws related to:

  • Seat belt use
  • Cell phone use
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Speeding
  • Driver’s license restrictions


Breaking these laws can lead to fines and license suspensions-including losing your license outright. If required by police to pull over, be sure to:

  • Immediately pull over to a safe location
  • Present your driver’s license, vehicle registration and insurance
  • Cooperate and be respectful
  • Talk to your parent about what happened

If you are accused of a serious traffic law violation, you may be required to appear in court. Traffic law violations involving teens are dealt with seriously and could lead to:

  • Fines
  • Lawyer’s fees and other court costs
  • Insurance rate increases
  • Suspended or revoked driving privileges
  • A criminal record
