WARNING! If you are not a Canadian citizen, you must call the SAAQ at 514954-7771 to check if you can obtain a driver's license, depending on your status in Canada. Indeed, as of January 1, 2022, foreign students and temporary residents holding a work permit for less than 12 months can no longer register for a driver's license. EDIT: It seems that an additional delay has been put in place and that this rule will only be applied from March 1st. You could register before this date. Please contact the SAAQ for more details!
