Drivers Licence Renewal



Renewing Your Drivers Licence

How to get an Alberta Driver's Licence

Provided that there are no changes to the card and you do not require a medical, you can renew all non-commercial class licenses online by visiting our Online Registry Services page. For all other scenarios, you will need to visit one of our Drayden Registry offices in person. *

*For special circumstances you may be able to renew online for one year. Please contact [email protected] for more information.

After renewing your licence, you will be able to hold on to your expired licence as well as a paper temporary drivers licence until the new card arrives by mail. This will take up to 21 days and you must destroy the old documents as soon as the new one is received.

You will need to bring the following document with you:

  • Current Drivers Licence
  • If your current Drivers licence is expired, you will need to provide additional documentation proving your name and date of birth. Please note that an Alberta Health Care card cannot be accepted to prove these two data elements.
  • If your licence has been expired longer than 6 months you will also need to provide us with proof of legal entitlement and residency.

Please be advised that if your licence has been expired for over 3 years, prior to issuing a reinstatement, you will need to pass the knowledge and road test.  More information can be found on our learners permit test and road test page.

If the photo on your licence is more than 4 years old, a new photo will be taken.
