Use for photo ID 

A BC Services Card is government-issued ID. You can use it at places that ask for photo ID to verify your identity or age. For example, when opening a bank account.


Your privacy is always protected

The BC Services Card Program can't see the information a government service saves about you. A service, such as a health care organization, may save some of your information but it is never shared between services. 

For example:

  • Police officers can't see your health records or medical history
  • Doctors can't see your driving record

Security is built into the card

The card is designed with the same driver’s licence features that help prevent theft and fraud. 


How to get a card

It’s simple and easy. Typically, you will receive your BC Services Card when you renew your driver’s licence. No need for extra visits or phone calls.

Or, you can change your personal information on your card.
