Drivers Abstract (SDA)
The Driver Abstract (often referred as Standard Driver Abstract (SDA)) may be released to the driver or to a party having a valid purpose in legislation. A Driver Abstract provides the current status of an operator’s licence and lists conviction information, any applicable demerit points, and suspensions. However, the Driver Abstract is neither the confirmation of the individual’s driving experience nor the confirmation of the date first licensed.
The Driver Abstract confirms information from an individual’s driving record that includes: name, address, date of birth, height, weight, sex, MVID number, operator license number and issue date, expiration date, class, current demerit points, suspended status, reinstatement conditions (if any) and the list of violations (descriptions, demerit/merit points, and suspension term).
The Driver Abstract is released through Alberta registry agents as 3-, 5- or 10-year printed reports.
