In BC, the consequence of driving without a valid driving licence is different depending on the number of times this has occurred. If this is the first time, the police will usually give you a ticket. For the second time, your driving record will show that you previously had a 'No Driver's Licence' conviction and they could impound the vehicle for 7 days. The offence of driving without insurance often results in fines. For driving offences such as these, the police usually just have to show that the vehicle  was not insured or you didn't have a valid licence and then the onus will usually shift to you to show you have one.
