I didn't think that things were to the point yet where they shared information between agencies. My guess is the risk of being found guilty of fraud for having 2 licences comes down to somebody accidentally blabbing about it. It isn't like the 2 agencies, in 2 separate countries, are going to risk sharing information.

Some quick examples, even between provinces I can think of: When I went to AB originally, I had a graduated "N" licence... the registry in Alberta looked at it, shrugged, and issued me a new class 5 over the counter, lol. I never actually took a road test.

Same goes for tickets... if I were to get a massive speeding ticket in BC, nobody in AB knows about it. I don't get points on my licence or anything. I also think when I transfer my licence back to BC, ICBC will be clueless as to what kind of a history I have. They want a bunch of letters from my past insurance companies. I also suspect that if I had points on my AB licence for tickets... they would have no idea unless I told them (I think anyway).

Whoa! Topic totally exploded LOL

Lots of interesting points, but gotta hand it to meme405 for putting it very simply and made a convincing argument for ICBC.

The system ICBC is trying to enforce means that you are accountable for your actions elsewhere once you come back home. AKA you can't go run over someone while driving drunk in a third world country and then come home and continue as if nothing happened.
I passed the test, alls good

Well, it's pretty cheap. I don't really want to and I don't really need to poop, but what the hell. I'll pay for it and do it when I feel like it.
