Learners, Permit and Road Test



Learners Test, Permit Test & Road Test Information

You can write your knowledge test or permit test, more commonly referred to as a learners test, for any class of licence in any of our Drayden Registry locations.  A Road Test is the physical driving test taken in a motor vehicle with a Driver Examiner.

What do I need & when can I write my Permit Test?

The Government of Alberta has made available online the learners manual for all classes and the drivers permit practice test.  The passing grade for all knowledge tests is 25 correct answers out of 30 questions.  If passed, this driver’s licence test only shows you have passed the exam and is not a valid driver’s licence, you will need to submit the passed test within 1 year to obtain the applicable class of Licence.  Visit Service Alberta for even further information.

Full testing and issuing of a learning permit takes approximately 1 hour so you must be seated at a computer for testing 1 hour prior to closing. Click here for hours.
