Changes due to COVID-19
Effective immediately, we have extended the timeline to 90 days for most drivers requiring a medical evaluation to provide their completed medical form when applying for or renewing their licence. This will reduce the current strain on the healthcare system.
Medically high risk drivers are still required to present their medical evaluation at the time of their application or renewal.
Jurisdictions across Canada, including Alberta, use the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators Medical Standards as a guideline in establishing the basic minimum medical and visual qualifications for safe driving.
In Alberta, you are required by law to report any medical/physical or functional conditions or changes in health that may affect your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.
