On 24 May 1940, the regimental headquarters and one squadron mobilized together with the headquarters and one squadron of Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) to form the short-lived 1st Canadian Motorcycle Regiment, CASF (RCD/LSH (RC)). On 21 September 1940, this regiment was redesignated as Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) CASF. The regiment subsequently mobilized The Royal Canadian Dragoons (Armoured Car Regiment), CASF, on 21 September 1940. It was redesignated as the 1st Armoured Car Regiment (The Royal Canadian Dragoons), CAC, CASF, on 11 February 1941; as the 1st Armoured Car Regiment (The Royal Canadian Dragoons), CAC, CASF, on 15 October 1943; and as the 1st Armoured Car Regiment (The Royal Canadian Dragoons), RCAC, CASF, on 2 August 1945. It embarked for Britain on 13 November 1941, landed in Sicily on 8 November 1943 and in Italy on 5 January 1944. There it fought as 1st Canadian Corps troops and eventually as a part of the 1st Canadian Infantry Division. Due to the mountainous terrain of Italy, the regiment fought much of its time there in a dismounted role as infantry. In March 1945 the regiment moved with the 1st Canadian Corps to North-West Europe as part of OPERATION GOLDFLAKE where it fought until the end of the war. The overseas regiment disbanded on 1 March 1946.

On 1 September 1945 a second Active Force component of the regiment mobilized for service in the Pacific theatre of operations designated as the 2nd-1st Armoured Car Regiment (The Royal Canadian Dragoons), RCAC, CASF. It was redesignated as the 2nd-1st Armoured Regiment (The Royal Canadian Dragoons), RCAC, CASF, on 15 November 1945; and as the 1st Armoured Regiment (The Royal Canadian Dragoons), RCAC, CASF, on 1 March 1946. On 27 June 1946 the regiment was embodied in the Permanent Force.[
