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

ICBC is expected to run out of driver's licence numbers (DLNs) in 2023 based on current consumption rates. To ensure service continuity when th​​is occurs, ICBC will be increasing the length of DLNs from 7 digits to 8.

We expect this change to occur by the fall of 2023. Driver's licences issued before this will not be changed or affected. BCID numbers will not change.
