People from B.C. now treated the same as from other states at Washington D.O.L.

I was just looking at the Washington State D.O.L. website recently and found out that people moving from the province of B.C. can now get their drivers licenses without having to write the knowledge test or do the road test same as if they moving from another state. Great for everyone moving there now but very frustrating for the rest of us that had to go through the stress of doing the knowledge test and road test after years of driving!!!!!

I figure that they have changed the law because of the new Enhanced Drivers license that they have just started in B.C. and Washington.

bah! I wish they did that for Ontario! Our licensing system is ridiculous (as in expensive and time consuming)!

Weird. When I moved from WA to BC, I never had to take any tests. I just surrendered my license to ICBC. This was two years ago.

I was actually talking about when I moved from B.C. to Washington last year. I had to do the knowledge test and the road test, now you don't

Canadians in Florida have it made. They can get residency cards -- even if they don't live here -- as well as Florida driver's licenses. The only test they take is an eye test.

I moved to Seattle from Louisiana and I had to take the written test.

My husband came here from Germany and the day after he arrived, we brought his German license, his passport with the visa, and my DL to show that I was the petitioner on his visa and they gave him his license. He didn't take any tests.

That is weird!

Kuro, my husband got his DL the day after he arrived on a K1, but I don't know if that was because he had a German license...
