What is an enhanced driver’s licence?

An enhanced driver’s licence is a Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) compliant document denoting identity and citizenship that can be used as a passport alternative at Canada-U.S. land and water border crossings. A valid passport is still required to enter the United States by air.

Getting an enhanced driver’s licence is a multi-step process and requires an appointment booked for a visit to a ServiceOntario centre.

We encourage you to read the enhanced driver’s licence applicant's guide to fully understand the steps and the requirements before your appointment.
