Can My (visiting) American Friend Drive My Mum's Car With Her Permission?

Postby Isreal » Tue Oct 03, 2017 1:58 am

My American friend will be visiting in June, and we wanted to go somewhere. We could take the GO bus, but I realised it would be cheaper, and faster to go by car instead. What are the rules on visitors driving Canadian cars? Is it okay for my friend to drive my mum's car with her permission? I don't have a license, but my friend has an American driver's license (licensed from the state of Arizona).

Her license is good in Canada my sister lives in Arizona and visits every year, we rent a car and she always drives.
Your mother should call her insurance agent to ensure the insurance would be in effect.

It depends on if your friend has a full license or just a learners permit. Her license is valid in Ontario for what she can do in Arizona.. If it is a graduated license she must follow both Arizona and Ontario rules about that type of license.

You Mom should check with her insurance about the extra driver.
