DRIVER’S LICENCE RENEWAL

Renew Your Alberta Driver’s Licence in Calgary

Trying to get your driver’s licence renewed? Ensuring that your driver’s licence is up to date is crucial, as driving a vehicle without a licence is dangerous and illegal. Registry @ South Trail Crossing Ltd. provides Alberta driver’s licence renewal services at our Calgary office. Contact us today to learn more and get your licence renewed in no time. 

Renewing Your Driver’s Licence in Person

You can start your driver’s licence renewal by visiting our office in person. Make sure you have your existing driver’s licence with you. For those with medical conditions, a code “C” licence, people 75 years old or older, or those holding a professional driver’s licence Class 1, 2 and 4, a completed medical form is required to renew your licence. 

 

If your driver’s licence has expired more than 6 months ago, you must bring additional documents to prove your entitlement to be in Canada, such as a valid passport or birth certificate, or original work and study permits, etc. You also need to bring a utility bill or residential lease agreement as proof of residency in Alberta.

Renewing Your Driver’s Licence Remotely

If you are outside of Alberta or can’t leave your home for medical reasons, it is possible to renew your driver’s licence remotely by completing the Remote Driver's Licence/ID Card Application. You will also need to provide proof of residency as well as identification in Alberta.

Renewing Your Driver’s Licence Online

Another possibility for renewing your driver’s license is to renew it online. If you hold a class 3, 5, 6 or 7 driver’s licence you are eligible for online renewal. To renew online you will need:

 

  • Verified MyAlberta account

  • Valid driver’s licence

  • Credit card (VISA, MasterCard or American Express)

  • Current web browser (Internet Explorer 6 or higher, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari).
     

Bear in mind that you will only be able to renew your driver’s licence online if it is not expired and you are not making any changes to it, such as name, address, or other information. Additionally, drivers who have outstanding fines will have to pay their fines and wait two to three business days before they are able to start their online renewal process.

Renewing your Driver’s Licence – Information You Should Know 

How Long do I have to Renew My Driver’s Licence?

You don’t have to wait for your driver’s license to expire to renew it. In fact, starting a driver’s licence renewal before the expiring date is faster and can be done online. Licences that are expired for up to 6 months must be renewed in person. For licences that have expired for more than 6 months, additional documentation is required, such as proof of legal presence in Canada and Alberta residency. Drivers who hold licenses that expired more than three years ago will be required to pass the written exam as well as the road test to have a new license issued. 

 

Can I Renew an Expired Driver’s Licence?

Yes. It is possible to renew a driver’s licence that has already expired. However, depending on how long ago your driver’s licence expired, you might need to provide additional documentation or even take different steps to have your new driver’s licence issued. Read our blog about common questions for renewing an expired licence to learn more.  

 

When Does My Alberta Licence Expire?

Alberta drivers’ licences are valid between one and five years, depending on factors such as age, medical status and class of licence. It is also worth remembering that your licence will expire on your birthday on the expiry year and not on the month of the expiry year as many people believe. 

 

When Can I Renew My Driver's Licence?

Up to one year before your driver’s licence expires, you can renew it online, provided you have no outstanding fines. If you have fines that are yet to be paid, you will need to wait two to three business days before you can start your online driver’s licence renewal process.
