What is an Enhanced Driver’s Licence?

It costs about $40, and an Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL) can be used instead of a passport when crossing the border by car.

However! It’s embedded with an RFID tag, meaning, protect it by using an RFID-shielding wallet, like this. Take this seriously, Saskatchewan abandoned EDLs because of the potential security breach.

Read it online at Autonet.

Favourite line:

There is one major difference between the two license that you cannot see – and that’s the addition of an embedded RFID tag.
