Driver’s License Calgary- Driving Permit Alberta

Driver’s License Calgary- Driving Permit Alberta

To better protect Alberta residents from fraud, driver’s licenses and identification cards have updated security features such as transparent windows, laser engraving and 3D embossing that make it difficult to alter or reproduce the cards. The cards are now in production and, due to advances in technology, cost less to manufacture than the previous design, saving Alberta’s taxpayers more than $ 1 million per year.

The driver’s licenses also include images that reflect the landscape and history of Alberta. The design shows Castle Mountain and the Bow River in Banff National Park, while identification cards include a wild flower from Wild Rose, Alberta. Both letters include an image of an Albertosaurus, a dinosaur whose name honors Alberta, where their remains were found for the first time.

Some security features in driver’s licenses can be verified using a look-listen-feel approach:

+ Clear window: three complex review windows, including one in the shape of Alberta, contain the photo of the cardholder. The use of a complex and asymmetric window is the first in Canada.
+ Rainbow printing: a gradual transition of color from one part of the card to another makes it difficult to scan and replicate.
+ Date of birth “Ghost”: the security fund is visible through the characters of the month and year of birth.

+ The card produces a sound similar to that of tin when it is thrown on a hard surface, unlike credit cards or bank cards.

+ Transparent laser engraving: you can feel the light letters (date of birth and sex) to the left of the photo.
+ High text: you can feel the black text highlighted in the date of birth, expiration date and signature. The data is recorded in the core of the card and is difficult to alter or replicate.
+ Embossed Alberta Shield: can be seen and felt in the lower part of the transparent window.
+ 3D relief: you can feel the image of Albertosaurus raised on the surface of the card. Create a 3D effect: the tail continues on the back of the card and seems to travel through the window in the shape of Alberta.
