Driver's License Renewals

What to expect when renewing your driver's license at Armour Registries.



Renewing Your License

Make sure to renew your driver's license before it expires. You can renew up to a year in advance at expiry at any Alberta Registry Office.

Visit our Registry Services page.

Most renewals are simple and only require you to present your expiring license to a registry clerk, take a new photo and pay an $84.45 fee. You do have to renew in person at a registry office and cannot send someone else to do it for you. 

Processing the actual renewal takes less than 5 minutes including the photo (new photos are required if your current photo is 4 or more years old). You'll walk away with a temporary Alberta drivers license (good for up to 30 days), and the new license will be mailed to you in 5 - 10 business days. I'd recommend leaving a bit more time though, because sometimes there's a bit of a line-up.

  • Cost: $84.45
  • Time: 5 Minutes (Depending on the line)
  • What to Bring: Your expiring or expired driver's license


A Medical Report May be Required

If you meet any of the following conditions below, you will be required to submit a medical report when renewing your license.

  • Age 75 years or older
  • Holders of Class 1, 2 and 4 licenses
  • All licenses with a condition code "C"
  • If your license has been expired for more than 3 years you will be required to pass a road test before being able to complete your renewal. 
Thanks Jason, for inspiring this article with your question: "Do you do driver's license renewals including the photo ID? How much is it? What do I need to bring?"
