Motor Vehicles

What qualifies as proof of residency in Alberta?

Proof of residency is required when someone is new to Alberta and they are attempting to obtain a driver’s license or register their vehicle.  Any client requiring motor vehicle and/or driver license services in Alberta must satisfy identification requirements, and . . . upon first arriving to Alberta, must also satisfy residency requirements.  For more about identification please visit the Government of Alberta’s website here:

http://www.servicealberta.gov.ab.ca/1305.cfm

Some examples of Alberta residency documents (this is not an all-inclusive list) are: Paystubs showing the client’s name and Alberta address, utility bill, telephone bill, gas bill, cable TV bill, cell phone bill (must be current within the last 90 days).  Other items include (must also show client’s name and Alberta address) but CANNOT be produced in an electronic format: Bank statement, credit card statement, Alberta Social Benefit Statement or cheque, other financial type statement, income tax assessment summary (must be current within the last 90 days).

More options: Residential lease agreement showing residential address, written confirmation of Alberta employment including contact name and telephone number (must be current within the last 15 days), written confirmation from an educational institution in Alberta indicating dependents are attending school full time, copy of Land Title (does not include rental properties, client must physically reside at the location).  If you cannot produce residency documentation there is an “exception” process.

Can I use my smart-phone or other electronic device to show a Registry Office my stuff?

Policy has been updated to allow a Registry client to now produce valid insurance electronically (by smart phone/device) when registering for the first time or renewing registration of a vehicle.  However, legislation still requires that the client produce the inter-provincial insurance card (pink card) upon request by law enforcement.  Policy now allows for the acceptance of an electronic paystub, as well as an electronic version of any utility statement as proof of residency in Alberta.  Clients may display this information with a smart phone/device to a Registry Agent or print the residency document and bring it with them to a Registry location.

All documents presented to support Alberta residency must show the client’s name and Alberta address (whether they are originals, computer printed statement or electronically displayed).  Documents must also be current (not older than 90 days).  Please view the FAQ on Alberta residency for more information about qualifiying documents.

How can I obtain my driver abstract when I no longer live in Alberta or I am away from Alberta?

You will need to do one of the following:

1.) Have someone I know attend an Alberta Registry office in person and request my abstract for me.

This person is acting as a third party requestor and needs to attend a Registry Agent office with the following two forms completed.  This third party individual will also be required to produce their own acceptable identification and make payment.

2.) Apply for my own abstract

This can be a more difficult procedure, it involves mailing in the original notarized request form as well as mailing in a notarized copy of acceptable identification.  You will then need to arrange payment and delivery with the Registry Agent who processes your request.
