Course Requirements: To do this, you must be at least 14, pass the written test at a registry office, have your parent’s consent (if under 18), and pass a vision test. In preparation for the written test, you can download the driving rules booklet from the Alberta Government website.  Read the booklet and then try the practice test online to see if you’re ready for the test. After you pass the written test, then call the below phone number to sign up for your class and driving instruction.

Study Guide: To help you pass your Class 7 license written test here is a study guide and lessons for the driving rules.

The Beginner Course is consists of 15 hours of classroom instruction and 10 hours of in-vehicle behind the wheel training and is either for automatic or manual transmission. The classes take place on the weekend usually.
