AMA Centres across the province sell and administer all classes of Knowledge Tests (aka the written drivers test or written drivers exam) for Class 1 to Class 7 and Air Brake endorsements.
This means that once you’ve studied for your Knowledge Test, you can come into any AMA centre to write the exam. You will take your exam on a computer at one of our Registry stations.
We start wrapping up our knowledge testing for the day 45 minutes before the centre closes. This is to allow enough time to complete any last-minute tests and to issue any licences required to students who pass. )
Before you can write the Driver Knowledge Test, you will need to show some documentation (ID).
Class 7: Learners (2-axle, motorcycle & moped)
Class 6: Motorcycle & moped
Class 1: Professional (any vehicle)
Class 2: Professional (bus)
