The Yukon is one of the most mineral rich areas of Canada. However, due to the extremely cold temperatures and remote nature of the Yukon territory, much of the vast wilderness has remained largely unexplored and pristine. There are few developed towns in the region and the distances between them can be large. Having a Yukon driving license in this vast area is key to being able to get around and for many, vital to their employment prospects.
In order to ensure that every prospective Yukon driver that visits our website is as well-equipped as possible, we at ICanDrive.ca have put together all the things you need to know to get through the graduated licensing Yukon implements - the skills you need to master and some excellent free resources to help you to get a Yukon driving license in the shortest time and in the easiest way possible.
Regardless of which Yukon driving license you need to apply for, we have you covered.
Often times drivers from different provinces or countries are unaware of local driving rules and end up making driving mistakes, getting traffic tickets or being involved in accidents. To avoid driving mistakes in Yukon make sure you familiarize yourself with all of the Yukon road signs and road rules, as explained in detail in the Yukon Driver's Basic Handbook. You may also find our free Yukon Class 7 practice test sets and/or our Yukon motorcycle practice test to be a real help if you simply want to refresh your rules of the road and road signs driving knowledge. Obviously, you must also be able to present appropriate Yukon vehicle insurance, license plates and owner’s permit to legally drive on public roads.
Every Yukon driver has to drive with a valid Yukon driving license. If you are temporarily visiting, you can continue to use another Canadian driving licence or international drivers license but you must get your Yukon driving license if you are considering residency.
Across Canada, handheld devices are illegal to use when operating a vehicle. Not only are you putting yourself at risk but also creating an unsafe environment for other road users.
Unlike most Canadian provinces, a flashing green light does not indicate you have the right of way to make a left turn but instead indicates intersections controlled by pedestrian walk buttons.
Speed limits in specific zones are increased or decreased based on safety assessments. Always follow the posted speed limit otherwise you could be creating a dangerous situation for yourself and others.
Depending on where you live, the process of getting your Canadian driver's licence can be different. Choosing your province or territory allows us to direct you to the right people and resources who can provide the best possible driver licensing information.
