Odd because I get a reminder that my drivers license to expire. Will be getting one soon actually due to it will expired in Aug. Same as my PAL.

Not in AB, you don't. Which is a huge gripe of mine as I was caught twice with an expired DL. What would have cost under a buck to remind us about it instead turned into a few hundreds in fines. Thus my conclusion that this is a cash cow that the AB government is more than content to continue milking.

Well sounds like its a provincial problem with your DMV.

Because Nova Scotia always did, Ontario does, I'm sure NB, PEI does. Quebec does. *Edit as I find out who does*

So far BC/AB doesn't.

Also if you got caught twice with a expired license, maybe should write your own notices and reminders. Since you are an adult and they normally expire same time every 5 years.

Just saying.

Also firearm license are federal, not provincial.

BC gives a reminder. As well, if you have outstanding points against your license, as in 6 of them, you get to AGAIN pay a fine for those, in an amount close to $200.00, BEFORE you can get your license renewed, which is about $75.00, I think - good for 5 years. It is cheaper now that I am officially, old, however my license had to be renewed at age 64, so cost full amount, even though I was 65 the next year. They would not sell me a 1-year license.

As well, if you have 6 points against your license with an outstanding fine owed the Government for your horrific driving of 3-5 kph over the limit, you must pay any unpaid fines before you can get your vehicle insurance renewed. When the government is running your entire life(almost) you cannot escape the #@(^@#*(.

Best Wishes

Think you missed the point of the comment. But thanks for explaining that a car is not a firearm.

While a car is not a firearm, it does make for a formidable weapon...
