Driver's Licences, ID Cards, and Vehicle Registrations

Alberta driver’s licences, ID Cards, vehicle registrations, and other permits and certificates that expired prior to May 15, 2020 must now be renewed.

Driver Knowledge Tests

The Registrar of Motor Vehicles has extended the expiration of the following driver knowledge test results:

  • Class 1 to 4:  Knowledge test results expiring between March 1, 2020 to and Sept. 20, 2020 – 180 days past the original date of expiry.
  • Class 6:  Knowledge test results expiring between March 1, 2020 to and Sept. 20, 2020 – 365 days past the original date of expiry.

Road Tests

All Albertans who want to take a driver’s road test can now book online as the province continues to open up the economy and access to personal protective equipment (PPE) increases.

Information about road tests and required health protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 can be found in this COVID-19 Road Tests: Eligibility and Procedures document. All drivers will have to follow these procedures, including signing an Assumption of Risk and Release of Liability document in front of the driver examiner.

We are experiencing increased online scheduling requests so drivers are encouraged to check back regularly if they are having problems connecting with us.

Rebook or reschedule a road test

Protocols are in place, including the use of PPE, to allow road tests to resume in a safe manner that helps prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Medical Evaluations

Alberta Transportation has extended the timeline to 90 days for most drivers requiring a medical evaluation to provide their completed medical form when applying for or renewing their licence.

This will reduce the current strain on the healthcare system. Medically, high risk drivers will still be required to present their medical evaluation at the time of their application or renewal.

There are some services that registry agents cannot process remotely, and therefore require in-person service, including:

  • New driver’s licence or ID card applications
  • Driver’s licence and ID card renewals requiring an updated photo
  • Vital Statistics services, such as ordering birth or death certificates
