Driver Licensing

Acceptable Identification Documents

You can use a wide range of documents to prove each part of your identity when applying for a Manitoba Driver's Licence. Each document must be from an authority such as a federal government, province or federal agency. They must also be originals — not photocopies. Electronic scans of these documents will be retained on file, in keeping with Canadian standards.

Please note that two supporting documents are required to prove you reside in Manitoba. Rural customers must provide at least one document containing their physical address. If rural customers do not have two supporting documents containing their physical address, the second document can contain their mailing address. Any supporting address document must be dated within 90 days of the date of application.

If you don’t have an acceptable document with your photograph, signature (for Enhanced cards) or address*, Manitoba Public Insurance may accept a completed Guarantor Declaration instead. Some restrictions apply, so please read the form carefully.

* A Guarantor Declaration form may be used as a second acceptable document for proving Manitoba residency if you only have one document with your address on it.
