There is some good news for all those people from the UK who have been worrying about taking the road test to get your BC license. Now you can exchange your UK license for a BC one.
The ICBC web site has now been updated to confirm this (rumours were spreading for weeks that this was to happen). We also have a client who has actually exchanged her license. So it is real!
It is worth noting that our client has been living her for several years and was able to exchange her license. Note that she had not been driving and had not taken a road test. If you are here and have failed the road test, I’m afraid that you will still need to go through the whole road test process – and pass!
For all those who are interested the full list of countries that are allowed to exchange driving licenses is:
- New Zealand
- South Korea
- United Kingdom
- United States.
