You can download the medical form here. This structure is to be completely finished by your family specialist or master. Medicals are required at the time of renewing, restoring or renaming of your drivers licence. A man who applies for or recharges a Class 1, 2 or 4 administrator’s permit must present a restorative report:

  • Every 5 years to age 45
  • Every 2 years from age 45 to 65
  • Every year after age 65

Alberta Transportation may ask for a medical exam at any age to determine your medical fitness to operate a motor vehicle. All licence terms are dependent on established medical guidelines. This applies to all classes of licences.

It is your responsibility and legal obligation to report any disease or disability that may interfere with the safe operation of a motor vehicle. If you have a medical condition that you or your doctor does not feel is necessary for a periodic medical to be completed, please contact Alberta Registries at 310-0000 toll free and speak to a government representative to inquire about your case.
