Alberta Identification Card
A photo identification card is available to Alberta residents who do not or cannot hold a valid Alberta operator's license. The card is clearly marked for identification purposes only and does not entitle the person to operate a motor vehicle under any circumstances.
To obtain an identification card, the individual must provide acceptable identification and proof of residency in Alberta & Canada as required. The minimum age is 12, and applicants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to provide consent.
PLEASE NOTE: The only exemption to Alberta residency is for students that are residents of another jurisdiction but are attending an Alberta accredited institution full-time. These individuals may request an Alberta identification card. They must present a letter from the institution verifying their full-time student status.
** If you have no photo identification, please come in with a family member that has a valid government-issued photo ID **
