I’m official

Yesterday I finally traded in my Pennsylvania driver’s license for a Nova Scotia one.  Access Nova Scotia (their version of the DMV) turned out to be not nearly as much of a pain as the US version.  The waiting room was very clean and neat, the people working there were extremely friendly (it is Canada after all), I was given an estimate of how long I would wait (30-45 minutes), and the wait was even less than they estimated!  Overall, pretty painless.  And being from the US, all I needed was my current US license, my passport (as my proof of birth), and the fee – about $70 – which I apparently can get refunded if I move back to the US and mail my NS license back to Access Nova Scotia.

So now I don’t have to carry my passport around any more and am legit!  I did apparently have 90 days to trade it in but I figured I might as well do it now while I had time.
