Out of Province Driver’s Licence

If you’re relocating to Alberta, you will need to exchange your out-of-province licence for an Alberta one within 90 days of arrival. You’ll be required to surrender your current licence, as holding multiple ones is unlawful. Make sure to provide documents confirming your legal status in Canada and residency in Alberta. Also, settle any outstanding fines or restrictions on your license before the exchange. This process guarantees you’re legal to drive on Alberta roads.

If you’re looking to access your Alberta Driver Abstract, you can effortlessly do so online via a verified MyAlberta Digital ID (MADI) account. You can create this account for free and once it’s verified, you’ll have unlimited access to your driving records. You’ll need to choose between a Standard Driver Abstract (SDA) or a Commercial Driver Abstract (CDA), depending on your needs. You can also specify the duration of the abstract, whether it be 3, 5 or 10 years.

Steps for an Alberta Drivers Licence Renewal

If you’re between 18 and 75, an Alberta resident, and your licence isn’t expired beyond six months, you can renew online. You’ll need a verified My Alberta ID account for this. If you don’t meet these criteria, don’t fret. You can visit our registry office in Northeast Calgary for your renewal. Be aware though, any restrictions on your account could affect the renewal. Also, remember, it’s your responsibility to renew your licence even if you don’t receive a reminder in the mail. Don’t let it slip if you want to keep up to date with your driving privileges.

Preparing for Knowledge Tests

Here are some key steps to aid your preparation:

  1. Study the Driver’s Guide: This thorough resource is your blueprint for the knowledge test. It covers all the rules, signs, and laws you’ll be tested on.
  2. Take Practice Exams: There are several online platforms offering practice tests. Consistent practice will help familiarize you with the structure and style of the real test.
  3. Rest and Relax: Make sure you’re well-rested and relaxed before the test. Anxiety can hinder your performance.
