    A new law passed yesterday in the U.S.A. requiring foreigners, including Canadians, to have an "international driving license" to drive in the U.S.A.

    Now, this would almost make sense, until you find out what it takes to get an international driving license in Canada.

    For example, if you actually had to go to the U.N. or the Federal government and take a test to get the permit, that would make some sense.

    However, that is not the case. To get an International Driving License in Canada, you get two "passport type" photos, you take your current Canadian License and some other ID, you go to the CAA with this stuff and pay $25.

    That's right, the Canadian Automobile Association is the party that gives out this license. Not even the licensing bureau of your province. To the best of my knowledge they cannot even do checks on your current Canadian license to make sure it hasn't been suspended for some reason.
