​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Driver's licence number (DLN) changes

ICBC anticipates running out of seven digit driver's licence numbers by the end of 2023. We are preparing to increase all driver's licence numbers from seven to eight digits by the fall of 2023. BCID numbers will not change. 

What to expect

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 di​scuss this change with your business and technology teams, so you're prepared to make any changes required to accommodate the additional digit.
