Driving to Canada across US border-do they ask to see your licence specifically?



I know this guy....and he's driving his brothers car down from the states, he's a permanent resident of Canada, but not a citizen. He only has a G1...and doesn't want to show his license as ID if he's asked. I know you can show your foreign passport and permanent residence card, has anyone ever been asked specifically for their license?

Never asked for a drivers liscence and i crossed less than a month ago. However when i crossed back into Canada i had to show the ownership of the vehicle and was questioned as to who it belonged.

It's a risk your taking, which i think is a pretty big one.

Driving without a license, vehicle impoundment, possible sommons to appear in court (depending where you live that could be a pain in the ass). Tow expenses, impound fees, plus any hotel or taxi charges to get home.

Basically he's driving without a license.
