Re: UK driving Licence to Canadian Licence

It isn't. Nearly 5 months on, I'm still waiting for some of them to come through with calls to them on a weekly basis. However, it saves you a packet in terms of discount. Tesco are by far the worst...

Re: Best Shipping company?

Re: Importing goods while on TWP

Thanks Jon. No wonder the customs guy looked at me oddly and laughed when I queried it! :rofl: Still, thats way better than the attitude of the Department of Hopeless Security going the other way.

Re: UK driving Licence to Canadian Licence

In BC, at least, they are very specific about how the evidence from UK insurers is presented; it isn't difficult - just specific. Search the Canada section of the site and read the Wiki as there is...

Re: UK driving Licence to Canadian Licence

They took both parts of ours and kept them, issuing a new BC licence with no driving test required although they did ask a few road knowledge questions and we had to do the eye test. Would be worth...
