Overview

If you are concerned that a driver may be a risk to public safety due to a medical and/or physical condition(s), you can submit a report to Alberta Transportation Driver Fitness and Monitoring. You must provide as much detail as possible and sign the report.

How to report a concern

Step 1. Write report

The report must include:

  • date of report
  • full name of unsafe driver
  • address of unsafe driver, if known
  • unsafe driver’s licence number, if known
  • birth date or approximate age of unsafe driver, if known
  • any known medical or physical conditions that may affect safe driving
  • name, signature and phone number of the person making the report

Step 2. Submit report

Send the report by mail, email or fax to Driver Fitness and Monitoring.

Step 3. Report is reviewed

Driver Fitness and Monitoring will review the report and identify what is required to determine the driver’s fitness to drive. A Reviewing Officer may contact you for more information.

Step 4. Follow-up actions

The Registrar has the authority to:

  • require that a driver participate in a medical or physical examination
  • place special conditions or restrictions on a driver’s licence
  • suspend a driver’s licence

These actions will only be taken where there are reasonable and probable grounds to believe that the driver is a safety risk to him or herself or others.

Under Section 60.1 of the Traffic Safety Act, information received about unsafe drivers remains confidential and is not disclosed. As per Section 17 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the circumstances and/or actions surrounding the subject of your report will not be disclosed.
