I understand that if you have a license from select countries, you can simply get the Toronto license without any tests or exams.
Does this apply for a driver's license from USA?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org I have a driver's licence from another country. How do I get an Ontario driver's licence? article.

Here is an excerpt,

Countries With a Reciprocal Agreement

Some countries, like the United States, Australia, France and Korea, have an agreement with Ontario which allows licensed drivers to obtain an Ontario licence without having to go through the regular process for obtaining a licence in this province.

If you have a driver's licence from one of these jurisdictions with Licence Exchange Agreement, you can benefit from this privilege.

The type of licence you can get depends on how much driving experience you have. You follow the same process as drivers with a licence from another Canadian province and from Canadian Forces - Europe.

Read about the Licence Exchange program on the DriveTest website to learn more about the process and the documents required.


You can find detailed information regarding specific jurisdictions in the USA on the DriveTest website.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
