How to get your license renewed in Alberta

How to get your license renewed in Alberta

A licence is essential for driving in Canada. Generally, a driver’s licence is effective for one to five years. Once that time is up, it’s time for us to renew our licence.

 

To drive with expired licence is against the law. So, here’s our step-by-step guide on how to renew your licence in Alberta.

Though it’s like other provinces, Licence Renewal Alberta has some things that make it stand out. Alberta has three renewal options: online, in person, and remotely.

 

Each technique has separate steps, so let’s review how we can do them.

 

Renewing Online

Renewing Online

 

If we have Class 7, 6, 5, or 3 driver’s licences, we can renew them online. However, we can only renew online before our licence expires and if we’re not making changes to it.

 

To renew our licence online, we’ll need an established account on MyAlberta Digital ID, a valid driver’s licence, a credit card, and a current web browser.

 

Those who don’t have an established account will have to wait several business days (up to 10) for an activation code that’ll be mailed. Paying fines online will take around two to three business days before renewing online.

 

Renewing in Person

 

If our licence expires before we can renew it online, we can always renew it in person. Another reason to renew it in person is by having outstanding fines.

 

Alberta has many registry agents to renew our licence, most of which are in Calgary or Edmonton. Renewing a licence is crucial if we’re older than 75 years, driving with a medical condition, or holding a Class 4, 2, or 1 driver’s licence.

 

We must bring a finished medical form if we’re in any of those categories. The Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan doesn’t insure medical examinations for licence renewals, so expect a fee.

 

Those who don’t need a medical examination for a licence renewal can renew theirs up to a year prior to the expiry date.

 

Suppose our licence expired over six months ago. In that case, we’ll need to offer proof of a lawful claim to be in Canada, like a birth certificate or a passport and proof of residency in Alberta, like a utility bill or a living lease agreement.

 

If our licence expired over three years ago, we’d have to pass the written and road tests before gaining a new one. If the photograph on our licence is over four years old, we’ll have to take a new one.

 

Renewing Remotely

If we can’t see a registry agent in person, we can complete the Remote Driver’s Licence and ID Card Application.

 

We need a last-held Alberta licence, identification, and proof of residence in Alberta with our application. We can send our application and fees to any registry agent in Alberta.

A licence is essential for driving in Canada. Alberta has three renewal options: online, in person, and remotely. So, we can use any of these three techniques for renewing our licence.
