An International Driver's Permit (IDP) doesn't require a test, just some cash. It is a document that translates your home license into different languages and also verifies that you are authorised to drive the class of vehicle you're claiming you're allowed to. Go to the NRMA/RAC in your city.

You are allowed to drive on a foreign licence for up to 60 days. You can exchange your licence for a Canadian one if you are staying longer. Bring a drivers history/abstract to complete the exchange. I work in the licence bureau of Ontario- I know how these things work! almost 5 years ago
