The Graduated Licensing Yukon Implements

Licenses for passenger type vehicles or light trucks

If you are looking to get a car driving license in the Yukon, you need to complete the Yukon GDL process (the graduated licensing Yukon administers) and build strong driving skills to help you safely drive on all Yukon roadways. While this section deals with getting a car or light truck driver's license, a similar process exists for Yukon graduated motorcycle licensing.

Our team wants to help you with your "learning how to drive in Yukon" journey. Our Yukon driving license resources, practice tests and road test tips can help you get your license in the easiest way and in the shortest possible time frame.

The first stage of the graduated licensing Yukon offers to aspiring passenger vehicle drivers begins with the Yukon Class 7 Learner stage, followed by the Yukon Class 5 Novice stage and finally, the full, unrestricted Yukon Class 5 driving license.

We're About Helping You Learn How To Drive In Yukon

The graduated licensing Yukon offers, or the Yukon GDL process is made up of three stages whereby you gradually build on your skills to go from a learner licensing level to a novice driver level and ultimately get your advanced Class 5 licence. The purpose of the Yukon GDL process is to ensure that every new driver (and sometimes experienced drivers) learn the skills that help everyone remain safe on all Yukon roads.  While the process may seem to be a long one, it actually goes by pretty quickly and before you know it you're an experienced Class 5 Yukon driver. You must of course also have sufficient Yukon car insurance and the appropriate documentation to legally drive in the Yukon territory.
