What docs do I need to cross the border from U.S. to Canada?


Ron Cate: Passport or an enhanced drivers license.
Harder to get back into the US than it is to get into Canada. At least as far as ID is concerned. But. Don’t bother if you want to take a hand gun, or if you have a US fellony, that is also a fellony in Canada.
They won’t let you in.
Passport is the best.
But they always ask for a drivers license.
I cross the boarder at least once every summer.
Some great riding in Western Canada.
