Renewing Your License or Identification Card
The Alberta government will mail you an operator renewal courtesy notice approximately 4 to 6 weeks before your license is due to expire. It is not a requirement to bring this form in for renewal. All identification/operator services must be done in person. You will be required to present your operator license or identification card at the time of service. A medical report is required for a class 1, 2 and 4 operator license and any class license with a condition code “C”.
Replacing Your Lost or Stolen License
If your identification/operator license has been lost, stolen or destroyed, you will be required to produce one piece of valid identification. Examples of this could be: valid passport, Alberta health card, or birth certificate. Please contact our office for a more detailed list of acceptable identification.
First Applications for an Identification Card or Driver’s License
If you are under the age of 18, you will be required to come in with your parent or legal guardian, in addition to meeting Alberta Registry policy requirements. Anyone 18 and above will be required to show Alberta residency, legal presence in Canada and one piece of supporting identification.
Examples of Alberta Residency:
(Electronic, Internet or Mailed)
Examples of Legal Presence:
The above examples are not all inclusive. Please contact our office for a more detailed list.
A valid operator license from a Canadian jurisdiction can be exchanged for the equivalent class license in Alberta. We will require your valid out-of-province operator license, proof of Alberta residency and legal presence. The out of province license will be sent back to that jurisdiction as it is illegal to be in possession of two licenses.
A valid operator license from an American jurisdiction can be exchanged for a class 7, 6 or 5 only. We will require your operator license, proof of Alberta residency and legal presence in Canada.
For operator licenses with a jurisdiction outside of North America, please contact our office for information pertaining to the documents you will be required to produce.
