It’s important that government ensures Albertans are safe and competent to drive without putting extra strain on the health care system for medical evaluations. This is why government has granted a 90-day extension to provide a completed medical form for most drivers who require a medical evaluation when applying for or renewing their licence.
This extension will help ensure that vulnerable Albertans will not be required to visit a doctor’s office during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Medically high-risk drivers will still be 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.
