We analyze the effects of a doubly charged vector bilepton as well as exotic quarks with charge 5/3 e and -4/3 e on light by light scattering. We consider mass values in the range 0.3--1 TeV, which would be reached at the planned future linear colliders. It is found that such exotic particles, especially the doubly charged vector bilepton, give raise to remarkable deviations from the standard model cross section. The virtual effects arising from these particles would provide an indirect test to
