CHANGE OF NAME ON YOUR ALBERTA DRIVER’S LICENCE
WHAT YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR NAME ON YOUR ALBERTA DRIVER’S LICENCE
Your driver’s licence
One additional piece of acceptable identification
Proof of the name change – i.e. marriage certificate; birth certificate; legal change of name certificate
YOU WILL RECEIVE AN INTERIM PAPER DRIVER’S LICENCE
The registry agent will retain your old licence and provide you with a temporary interim paper licence to use until your new driver’s licence arrives in the mail (up to 21 days).
Your interim paper licence will not have a photograph. If you anticipate needing photo ID during this period, we recommend you carry with you some other form of photo ID (e.g. passport).
If you renew your licence at the same time, you pay the renewal fee only.
