UK Driving Licence
I have a full UK Driving Licence and International Driving Permit. Will I be covered to drive my daughters (Ontario Resident)car by her insurance when I visit her next month from the UK?
Visiting From UK and Auto Insurance
Thanks for asking! If you are properly licensed to drive in Ontario, then you are permitted to drive the car with permission from the owner.
Based on the Ministry of Transportation for Ontario, you are properly licensed. Quote:
"If you are a visitor to Ontario and want to drive while you are here, you must be at least 16 years old and have a valid driver's licence from your own province, state or country. If you are from another country and visiting Ontario for more than three months, you need an International Driver's Permit from your own country or you may have to apply for an Ontario driver's licence, depending on your length of stay. You should also ensure your automobile insurance coverage is sufficient, and that you carry the original or a true copy of the vehicle registration or Certificate of Title for your vehicle. " From the MTO website.
Hope that helps!
