Renewing Your Provincial Drivers License

As of April 1st 2016, the Province of Alberta will no longer be mailing out reminders to your home to renew your Provincial drivers license. Employee’s operating City fleet vehicles or equipment are required to have a valid provincial driver’s license.

It is the responsibility of the employee to ensure that your drivers license is renewed prior to the expiration date. The expiry date is the same date as your so that should be easy for your to remember.

Please click the link below to sign up for your free renewal notification via email or text message.

Visit www.e-registry.ca to request your reminder.
