My soon to be brother in law is rocking one from HK right now. He has been road checked, and the officer told him that the license is only valid for 90 days after he landed. Luckily he was still within the time frame. But the officer urged him to go thru ICBC and get a local license ASAP.
From what I understand, you would still have to take the knowledge test first, but there will not be the 1 yr wait in btw, and the person will be able to book a road test as soon as he passed the knowledge test. Lastly if passed on the road test, it will be straight to Class 5.
Hope this helps =P
