Will moving violation in US Driving History records effect License exchange in Ontario?

  1. Hi Guys,

    I am currently in USA, moving to Canada in mid october. I came to know that we need to submit Driving history records from US DMV's to exchange US license to Ontario License. I have a moving violation last december(broke red light), will it have any impact on getting Ontation License without giving tests?
     
  2. I think so. Your 2 year experience clock start date will reset to the day you got ticket and given that it was on last December, they may refuse to exchange it. I don't have san official link to prove this, but remember reading such a thing in this forum.
     
  3. Pretty sure it’s direct exchange for a US license. If you have 2 years experience, you’ll get a full licence. A single moving violation shouldn’t affect you.

  4. You will get a license,no issues with that. However Insurance companies will penalise you for that ticket with higher rates.
     
  5. Thank you Guys !!
