To apply for an Ontario driver’s licence at a DriveTest Centre, you will be required to show proof of your:
- Legal name
- Date of birth (must state the day, month, and year of birth)
Legal name is defined as the one registered at birth or the one changed legally through adoption, court order/change of name certificate, or marriage. If there is a variation in the names on the legal identification you present and the name that appears on your licence, you will be required to provide additional supporting documents to link the names together.
Proof of identity requirements can be met by presenting one or multiple documents, depending on the level of detail available on the documents you choose to show. The following sections and tables indicate the documentation (or combination of documents) that can be used with your licence application. Please note that, in all the following tables, the symbol • indicates a particular piece of information is satisfied.
There may be other documentation requirements for licence exchanges and out-of-country and out-of-province drivers.
