Expired license while out of country

by NK
(Ontario, Canada)

I received my Ontario driver's license in 1999 and while I was out of the country, it expired. I was away for 6 years as a non-resident and upon return to Canada had to redo the written and road test to get my license. Now that I am trying to get insurance, the companies are telling me I've only been licensed for 1 month and the premiums are accordingly high! I have been driving for 20 years and have been insured all of that time. What can I do?


No Credit For Driving Experience


If you provide a drivers abstract that shows how long you have been licensed that will help. And if you get a "letter of experience" from your out of country insurers that will help too. Especially if they are from the US.
