BC only - advice on learners permit and rental car
This is specific to British Columbia
I’m not familiar with ICBC I have a friend who’s practicing for his Drivers road test due to out of country license swap not being recognized here. He has years of driving experience but ICBC doesn’t recognize his country.
I have my full class 5 bc license and decades of driving experience.
We managed to rent once from a small player paying their insurance rented in the learners name and me I the passenger seat. The guy seemed new but he allowed it.
Today we went to two agencies and no matter how they sliced it they would not cover him (even if I rented and let him drive) and they seemed helpful so they’re probably correct.
This is not for the road test just practice but eventually we may need to rent for the road test (and may rely on a drivers school for that)
They said ICBC May sell a one day policy? I’m from Ontario so have zero experience with ICBC so any help is appreciated.
His credit card has no coverage but we are looking to perhaps switch him to one with it
