Hi all, I know this has probably been asked a lot of times, but this still confuses me as every government official in Canada keeps telling me different information. My situation: I'm a Dutch citizen from the Netherlands and I am currently in Canada on a working holiday visa. The CBSA officer only issued me a 1 year work permit, because the Netherlands is a visa exempt country. I explicitely asked him if he was 100% sure he doesn't have to issue me a visa, since I will be staying here for 1 whole year. The answer was yes, 100% sure. I also asked him whether the work permit qualifies me as a visitor or temporary resident. The answer was temporary resident. I have a Dutch driver's license for 8 years now. If I were a visitor it would've been valid for the entire 12 months in combination with an international drivers permit. However, since I am a temporary resident right now, I have been told my license is only valid for 90 days. I am now travelling throughout BC for the next couple of months and I have no "permanent" address here. I stay wherever I can and feel comfortable. Since BC has a reciprocal agreement with the Netherlands, and I have had my license for 8 years, I should be able to exchange it for a Class 5 BC license on the spot according to ICBC's website. However, just to be sure I gave them a phonecall today and I have been told by the lady on the phone that I will need a permanent residence card in order to get a driver's license. I explained my situation of being on a working holiday visa with a 1 year work permit and she told me you are fine with an international drivers permit. So yeah, this confuses me alot. I just want this this out of the way and apply for a Class 5 license, just to be sure. My questions are: 1. Given my 8 years experience and being from the Netherlands in BC, will I be able to exchange my license on a Working Holiday visa (even though they only gave me a work permit since Holland is visa exempt)? 2. Do I need proof of residency in BC in order to apply for my license? Like I mentioned above, I travel throughout the entire province and have no "permanent" address. So no proof either. BUT, I do have family living in BC whose address I may use. Does that suffice? I just want to be sure before I waste time, gas and money on driving down to a registry office. Thanks in advance for the replies.
