Current and recently retired military members can apply to exchange their military driving credentials for a Saskatchewan driver’s licence.
Military training and testing requirements meet Saskatchewan’s own licence testing standards.
The military member or retiree must be a Saskatchewan resident in order to exchange their Department of National Defence (DND) 404 military driver’s permit for the equivalent Class 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1 Saskatchewan driver’s licence. For retired members to qualify, they must have retired within the last 2 years.
How to receive an equivalent Saskatchewan driver’s licence
If you are only needing a Class 5 licence, start at Step 2.
Step 1: You will need to complete a Commercial Driver’s Licence Medical Report (pdf, 160 kb) within 90 days of applying for a commercial (Class 1, 2, 3 or 4) driver's licence. If you fail to complete the mandatory Medical Report within 90 days, your driver’s licence will be automatically down-graded to a Class 5.
Step 2: Proceed to your local Road and Vehicle Safety Section (15 Wing Moose Jaw or CFS Dundurn) to confirm your equivalency exchange and complete the required paperwork.
Step 3: Once all documentation has been completed, confirmed and signed by an authorized Road and Vehicle Safety representative, present all required documentation to your local motor license issuer, and apply for the appropriate class of Saskatchewan driver’s licence.
