I have been told I hand in my BC dvr license when I apply for my Ontario dvr lic.

How does that work for my insurance when it is registered to me and I will be driving my BC plated vehicle with an Ontario dvr to get my Ontario insurance?

My ICBC insurance is good until March, and my contract is getting extended.

I have been told I have to have my BC dvr changed within 6 months or be out of the province for a day to reset the 6 month clock.

I can't get plated or insurance until I have my ON dvr, I have been told. An "out of province" vehicle inspection would be needed I expect.

I would be nice if there was a "one stop" location....it all seems like toooo many cooks in the kitchen promoting their own ingredients...

A Temporary year allowance for "workers on contract" would be nice if it was available and we simply apply for it.


Thanks for your insight in advance:)

Hello Johny,

Thank you for sharing your situation and observation with us.

We can appreciate how frustrating this must be.

It is true that it would be great to have a "one stop" location for a lot of things.

You may be able to find some additional information, (if you have not already looked) on the Ontario.ca website in the Register and insure a vehicle in Ontario section.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
