Getting your driver’s license in Alberta
Whether you are a new resident to Alberta or a young driver just starting out, you can apply for a license at any Alberta Registry Office.
New residents to Calgary will likely need to exchange an out-of-province license within 90 days of moving to Alberta. They will also need to register their vehicles to the new province.
Like many provinces, Alberta has adopted a Gradated Driver License program for drivers with less than two years of proven driving experience. This program lets new drivers gain experience in safer conditions.

Be Safe Driving in Calgary
The total number of registered vehicles registered in Calgary increased to over 1,000,000 at the end of 2014, up from 852,000 in early 2010. With more cars on the road every month, the potential for accidents or theft increases making the reasons for having proper auto insurance in place very important. By comparison, Edmonton had only 656,562 registered vehicles on the road.
Accidents can occur year-round, but winter driving poses hazards that increase the risk. Slippery roads, reduced visibility due to snow and careless speeding all contribute to crashes.
In 2013, Calgary police recorded 40 traffic fatalities, a 39 percent increase over the previous five years.
