I am from Pakistan and I came to Canada for a better life but from the first day I have faced a lot of problems. There is a different life style, different system and different requirements in Canada. I am taking only one point from them that is my BC Driving License. I am an experienced driver and I wanted my license to be accepted. But my shock was that it was not. The officer told me that you are considered new driver. If you want to become as experienced driver then you have to prove it by your City License Authority. This proving process took some time as a new driver must wait for a road test after the knowledge test.
