Driver's Licensing

New Process for Booking Driver License Knowledge Tests

Please note that as of August 4, 2021 our online Knowledge test booking system will open for Knowledge tests written August 5th, 2021 and later.

Effective August 5th, 2021, we will no longer be able to accept walk-ins for Knowledge Tests. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

To apply for or renew your British Columbia driver's license you must bring one "primary" and one "secondary" piece of identification.

Your existing driver's license may be used in place of any one of these.

 Primary identification  Secondary identification
  • Canadian Passport
  • Birth Certificate
  • BC Identification (new digital style only)
  • Canadian Citizenship Identification
  • Canadian Record of Landing
  • Canadian Student Visa
  • Canadian Work Visa
  • Returning Resident Permit
  • Canadian or U.S. Drivers license
  • Naturalization Certificate
  • Canadian Forces Identification
  • Police Identification
  • Foreign Affairs Canada ID or Consular ID
Photocopies of these documents are not acceptable unless certified as true copies of the original.

If your legal name differs from that on your ID, you must also present a marriage certificate or legal name change certificate.

If you were born outside Canada and do not have primary ID, contact Citizenship and Immigration Canada at 1-888-242-2100.

If you were born in Canada, please contact the jurisdiction you were born in to get a copy of your Birth Certificate.
