What is a Driver Abstract
Your driver abstract is a summary of your driving record. It includes your merit and demerit points, convictions and suspensions. Both Standard or Commercial Driver Abstracts qualify, and you can order one at your nearest registry location.
Your driver abstract must be for a 3 or more year period and have been obtained within the last 30 days.
You cannot have a single major conviction on your abstract (4 demerit points or more), no more than 2 minor convictions (3 demerit points or less)
You cannot have licence suspensions or any failure to produce insurance convictions
Merit courses have no impact on abstract eligibiity
Please obtain your 3-year driver's abstract from any Alberta registry and bring it to the Calgary Greenlight Hub with 2 pieces of identification.
