I live in British Columbia (BC) and I have class 7 license. I am moving to Seattle on a TN visa and I'm wondering if I can also exchange the class 7 license for the full Washington license without additional testing? I ask this because I am in a rush to get auto insurance from Washington state and I need a local driver license to avoid extra charges. I am in a rush to get auto insurance because I will be on a temporary 1-week auto insurance policy from BC.
According to the DMV website, it seems like I can?
On that note, I am getting a temporary 1-week auto insurance in BC, since the old one will expire soon. When I get my license in Washington, do I have to turn in my BC license? Would my BC auto insurance still cover me when I don't have my BC license?
