All EDL and EIC transactions require you to attend a designated driver licensing office in person. We recommend that you book an EDL appointment before you visit to avoid waiting in the office. If you attend a designated office without an appointment you may have to wait for service.
There are strict ID requirements for all EDL and EIC appointments. Be sure to check the EDL/EIC guide to find out what ID you need before coming in—we don't want you to be disappointed. If you're unsure about what ID is required, contact us. Prepare for your appointment using the application checklist.
When you come in for your appointment:
If you're under 19, a parent or legal guardian must come with you.
To book, reschedule or cancel online, you must currently have a B.C. licence or ID card (regular or enhanced). If you don't have one, you'll need to book by phone.
To book online, you must currently have a B.C. licence or ID card (regular or enhanced). If you don't have one, you'll need to book by phone.
Monday to Friday: 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
When booking, please keep in mind that the customer line doesn't provide earlier appointment times than those available on the online booking service.
Please note that the EDL/EIC is not the same as the combined B.C. Services & Driver's Licence. If you are applying for or renewing your B.C. Services & Driver's Licence or BCID, you do not need to make an appointment.
