The province is making it easier for Nova Scotians in other countries and newcomers to the province to use their driver’s licence. “We are making the reciprocity agreement process for licensed drivers from other jurisdictions and Nova Scotia more efficient,” said John MacDonell, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. “That includes Nova Scotians travelling abroad, new residents and immigrants and visitors who come to our province to work or study.” Government will now be able to establish agreements more quickly and efficiently. The province honours all classes of driver’s licences issued by Canadian provinces and jurisdictions in the United States. Reciprocal agreements are also in place with Germany, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Austria and the Isle of Man. The new process makes Nova Scotia consistent with many other Canadian provinces. Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations reviews driver’s licensing practices and standards in each jurisdiction to ensure they are compatible with those Nova Scotia’s.
