Quebec Driving Knowledge Practice Test

The Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec or SAAQ (English: Quebec Automobile Insurance Corporation) is a Quebec crown corporation responsible for licensing drivers and vehicles in the province and providing public auto insurance which insures all drivers, passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists involved in road collisions whether or not they are at fault (no-fault insurance). Coverage, however, is limited to personal injuries — damage to property is covered by private insurers.

The SAAQ also administers Quebec’s driver’s licenses and vehicle licence plates (analogous to the DMVs of many U.S. States), and seeks to prevent road accidents, particularly through advertising campaigns in the media and in schools.
