To activate your driver's licence Plus, you must have on hand:
Before using your licence Plus to cross the U.S. border, you must make sure it is valid by activating it at least 24 hours before reaching the border. We recommend that you activate it as soon as you receive it.
You can use our SAAQclic Online Services to check if your licence Plus is valid (active), following the same procedure you used to activate your licence. A message will indicate if your licence Plus has been activated: if so, it can then be used to cross the border.
