ICBC (Insurance Corporation of British Colulmbia) issues driver licenses, BC ID, vehicle registration, and auto insurance. 

Driver's Licence

If you are a full-time international student, you may drive in BC with a valid international driving licence. While driving, carry your valid International Driving Permit or home driver's licence (and an official translation if it is not in English), your valid SFU student ID card and your study permit. Translation services are available through MOSAIC.

If you become a permanent resident of Canada, are no longer a full-time student, or wish to apply for a BC licence, varying rules apply. Visit the ICBC website for details.

Automobile insurance

ICBC (Insurance Corporation of British Columbia) provides universal auto insurance to all BC motorists and is also responsible for driver licensing and vehicle enrollment. All BC motorists must have “Basic Autoplan” coverage, which provides the minimum insurance coverage required by law.
