Driver’s License

Whether renewing a driver’s licence or applying for your first licence the secure application process requires everyone to provide several government-issued documents as proof of identity and Yukon residency.

Procedures on how to apply for a Yukon Driver’s License can be found at www.hpw.gov.yk.ca/mv/procedures.html 

Services are available in Whitehorse and in most Yukon communities.

Yukon now offers both a secure driver’s licence and a secure general identification card so that all Yukon residents can have government-issued, secure ID.  It is convenient for travelling, guards against identity theft and prevents tampering with photos and birth date.

Motor Vehicles produces and issues both of the new cards using a system that continues to safeguard Yukoners’ personal information.  Since the application process to obtain the cards is secure, information on the cards is widely accepted wherever government-issued ID is required to prove identity, age and place of residence.
