Several American Interstates and major highways lead directly to the Canadian Border. All American State drivers' licenses are valid in Canada and the local traffic laws and road signs are very similar. U.S. and Canadian citizens will need to present either a Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative compliant document, or a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, plus proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate.

Implemented on June 1, 2009, all persons traveling by car between the United States and Canada are required to present a passport or other valid travel document to enter or re-enter the United States.
