Can their law enforcement officials understand plain English?
Yes ... obviously anyone who can understand plain English will have no problems with a Quebecois Permis de Conduire.

This is why we have the multilateral DL treaty. The international proof of DL document is in multiple languages and also deals with DLs in less common languages.
ie japanese, arabic, russian, greek, italian, etc.

I don’t read French and I have never seen this document before, but I can read it and pick out birth date, expiration date, etc.

I’d have no problem reading that, but I grew up with bilingual labels on everything.

It might not be plain English but I can tell she has an expired license.
It’s pretty F’d up that they require French signs all throughout Canada, even in the provinces where very few French people live, yet in Quebec, they do not have to have anything in English.

What a ridiculous law.
Via simple deduction and elementary reasoning, as well as a rudimentary understanding of ‘how’ the English language relates to French and other Romance languages should allow just about anyone with a brain to be able to decipher a Quebecois driver’s license.

In Quebec, official documents are only in French since only French is official in the province.
A US law enforcement officer would still recognize a Quebec permis du conduire as a valid drivers' license.
