Right guys,

A couple of queries. Would really appreciate if anyone could answer these.

1, So what i gather from the recent posts is that the NOC letter from Traffic Police here in Karachi, Pakistan is of no use now . Is that correct ?

2, so all i need to do is take my original driving license and go to the embassy/consulate here in Canada, and they will give me the verification letter . But what would they verify ?

thanks in advance

Hello,

I am just going for the renewal of my pakistani license. It was expired since 7 years. Will I get waiver for G1 driving test waiting time? I will be travelling to Ontario in a month.

Regards

There is no need to make the driving license letter from pakistan, it is not recognized here. I landed in toronto and found out this now, what you need to do is have your orignal driving license and go to the embassy/consulate here, fill a form and give 25 CAD ( the website says 20 ) and they will give you the verification letter. Only that letter is recognized by canadian driving license authority and not the one which you make from pakistan .

More details can be found here

I did made that letter from karachi traffic police office but was a waste.

But, i think consulate verify the current driving license. For example, if one had 5 year old driving license and it got expired. then he got it renewed it from ISD ITP traffic police and got new one. Whether the verification letter takes into account the old 5 years experience as well, or it just verifies the current driving license card which might have been issued 1 year ago. Do they mention the whole driving lincense experience for G full test, or to be taken advantage while applying for insurance ??

Not sure about this, you can call the Pakistan consulate at Vaughn and ask this question. If you are living outside Canada then you can use Google hangout dialer application on your smartphone to make free calls to Canada/US numbers.

One thing to note that the exemption is only to attempt G or G2 road test and not for insurance. I don't think you get any discount for having a driving history in Pakistan - never heard about it.

Thanks a Lot for concise reply.

One more thing, my ISD ITP DL Card has some wording grown quite dull (to un-readable), as with passage of time in wallet/pocket; So, the NOC will compensate for that; Or i needed to apply for a Duplicate Card from ISD ? Whats your opinion and recommendation Please ?

Dear, i got NOC letter here from ITP. It is on their official letter head, signed by senior suprintendent of police, mentions my other details alongwith DL No., but it mentions only date of issuance. It doesn't mentions Date of Expiry on the letter. Whether your obtained letter from consulate office mentions the date of expiry or Not ? And, whether it is must required?

I don't remember if the letter had any expiry mentioned or not, I don't think so it did but you wont need it. When you go to Canada drive test center they will ask for letter to check if you have 2 years of driving history in your home country so I don't think they will ever check any expiry.
In my case I had a driving license made 2 years back so they figured out this guy must have 2 years driving experience. That's it.
Also if you call the Pakistani consulate at Vaughn I would say call 2 times at different days because as usual they are stupid people who will not pick up your call and even if they pickup they wont be interested in using brains to give answer so call twice to make sure, if you are 2 in family you should call separate so they don't recognize that you called a some time back - I hope they wont.

If you provide your email I will email you...send me your email address in private message..
Hope to immigrate to Canada in January 2020 and then go for G license.

Got my DL on Dec 4, 17' so gonna have a driving experience of 2 years from Dec 19'. I visited the City Traffic Officer today and asked for an experienced letter. They were of the view that there is only one thing for overseas i.e. International Driving Permit (IDP). Should I wait for December to get IDP? Would my local DL and IDP enough to justify the experience after entering Canada?

Kindly share the image with me too @ saudkhan1@gmail.com
