Insider Tip

When you get either your BCID (British Columbia Identification) or driver's license, you'll be asked to enroll in the BC Services Card. This replaces the CareCard. If you don't have a BC Services Card yet, don't worry.

How much does it cost? 

The BC Services Card is free.

If you decide to get a dual BC Services Card, which combines your driver's licence and BC Service Card the cost is:

$31 for your Learners Licence combined with your BC Services Card.

$75 for your Novice Licence combined with your BC Services Card.
