I'm visiting BC for a few months. Do I need a BC driver's licence?
I have a driver's licence from my home country.
No. If you’ve just moved to BC from another province or country and have a valid driver’s licence, you usually have to apply for a BC driver’s licence within 90 days.
But you don’t have to do this if you’re:
A visitor. You can drive in BC for up to six months with a valid driver’s licence from the province or country you moved from.
A full-time student in a designated post-secondary school. You must carry your student ID with you when driving.
A temporary foreign worker with the seasonal agricultural worker program (SAWP). You can drive for up to 12 months on a valid licence from the province or country you moved from.
