The improvements will make it easier to use, including the ability to easily check a driver's licence by scanning the card on a mobile device. The changes will also reduce burden on businesses by expanding the number of licence checks entered at one time from nine to 100.

Associate Minister for Small Business and Red Tape Reduction Prabmeet Sarkaria says "The improvements we are announcing builds on what our government has done to date—like allowing drivers to carry proof of insurance on their smartphones. We're making it easier for Ontario businesses and drivers to ensure that licences are valid, up-to-date, and able to help keep our roads safe."  

In Ontario, vehicle owners are responsible for ensuring that everyone who drives their vehicle has a valid driver's licence.
