A person coming to Alberta from outside Canada may apply to have their previous driving history credited to their Alberta driving record. The foreign documentation must be submitted to the government so that previous driving experience can be verified. A successful application will grant exemption from the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) program and allow for Class 5 road testing without being required to hold a Class 7 drivers licence for one year.
