Non-Alberta license for tourists and visitors
A person visiting Alberta who is authorized to drive a motor vehicle of a particular class or type under a valid licence or permit issued outside Alberta is not required to hold a current and valid operator’s licence if the person drives the same type or class of motor vehicle while visiting in Alberta.
You can drive in Alberta with your BC license; just follow all of the restrictions on your license just as you would if you were driving in BC (Display ‘N’ or ‘L’ sign, etc.)
