ICBC anticipated running out of seven digit driver's licence numbers by the fall of 2023.
As of July 24, 2023, all driver's licence numbers increased from seven to eight digits. BCID numbers will not change.
Adding an additional digit to the driver's licence number will impact many ICBC systems and processes. It may also impact your organization.
It is important that you assess your systems and discuss this change with your business and technology teams so you're prepared to make any changes required to accommodate the additional digit.
Review our DLN info session presentation to understand why we are making this change and when it will happen.
DLN technical guidelines explain how a driver's licence number is used and stored in our systems and what will be changing.
