Expiry dates

Albertans are responsible to ensure that their registrations, licences, and identification cards are current. A driver’s licence is valid for one to five years, depending on the class, and expires on your birthday. Registrations expire on an assigned month based on your surname.

Check the expiry dates on your licence plate, driver’s licence, or identification card and mark them on your calendar.
