Driver’s licenses must be renewed every 5 years (or more frequently depending on age, health and legal status). These Alberta Drivers License renewals must always be done in person at an Alberta Registry office and you cannot authorize another person to do the service on your behalf.
The cost for a 5 year term is $84.45 and the cost is pro-rated for shorter terms.
Your driver’s license always expires on your birthday, not on the last day of your birth month.
The Government of Alberta no longer mails out reminder letters you’re your license is about to expire. Don’t get caught with an expired license – sign up for an email or text reminder.
If your license is expired for more than 6 months, you will need to bring support documents to prove your identity, legal status in Canada and residence in Alberta. Please see this list of acceptable support documents so you know what to bring in with you.
