Driver Fitness and Monitoring

Alberta Transportation aims to strike a balance between an individual's transportation needs and the public's right to road safety. Through monitoring drivers' fitness, safety records and medical conditions, Alberta's roads will be safe for all road users.

Note: Physical and medical conditions, as well as changes in health, that could affect your driving ability must be reported. All medical reports are kept confidential and will only be used by Alberta Transportation to determine a person’s qualifications to drive. Decisions regarding a person's ability to drive are based on the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) Medical Standards.
