Valid Drivers Licence

Regardless of your age or driving experience level, you need to be carrying a valid PEI drivers licence to drive in any part of PEI.

No Distracted Driving

The use of handheld devices while driving is against the law in PEI, so make sure you are not using a cellphone or mobile device when driving a vehicle unless its a hands free device.

No Alcohol

Drunk driving is the leading cause of vehicle-related accidents. Each driver licensing level dictates the level of alcohol you are allowed to consume when operating a motor vehicle.

Obey Speed Limits

There is a large difference in the speed limits for rural, urban and highway driving. Make sure you are aware of the speed limit expected of you at all times.
