REGINA, Sask. — Saskatchewan drivers are now required by law to have one of the province’s new photo identification cards.
However, the province says about 40,000 drivers had yet to obtain a photo card as of last Thursday. Those drivers will receive a temporary photo exemption card, Bernadette McIntyre, assistant vice-president of Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), told local media.
Exemptions are expected to arrive in the mail by early this week. Drivers who receive an exemption card will then have to visit an SGI branch office or an independent motor licence issuer to receive the card before they can renew their driver’s licence. There’s no charge for the photo ID card, which is designed to serve security purposes.
