The DFE will do the so-called " Review". This is only administrative business.
The DFE will check authenticity of your documents, check your English language performance and update your details in the FAA airmen Portal.

The DFE will issue a paper version of your validation.

Note: you will only get a PPL validation with the ratings stated in your foreign license. Your validation is valid as long as your Original is valid. You need both of them when flying in the USA.
Joop...thanks for the PIREP....but can you confirm something?
It sounds like there is NO flight 'test' or checkout of any kind. This is what I read also in my research from the Canadian side.

I'm not sure when I'd benefit from a US license, but the document I read sounded like it was for people MOVING to the US, not just wanting to vacation or fly within the US.

I know a few Canadians who take their aircraft south for 3 or 6 months in the winter, and fly about with their Canadian licenses naturally.
At some point however, I can see a guy might want to re-register the aircraft, or use his US license for certain privileges it may allow?? ( like renting from a flight school etc.)
thanks again.
