Hit the Book

The first thing we recommend you do is download a copy of the Alberta Driver’s Handbook and study, study, study. The questions on your test will be taken from content in this handbook, so make sure you read it.

Test Yourself

Once you’ve read through the handbook, you’ll want to test yourself. You can take our Online Practice Exam or download our free Learner’s Licence Practice Exam app for your iPhone or Android.

No matter which you use, they are great resources that you can work through multiple times to test your knowledge. You’ll get a feel for the types of questions you’ll be asked when you write the exam for real.

Write Your Exam

Write Your Exam

When you’re ready to write your Class 7 Learner’s Exam, come into any AMA centre. Just a couple of notes:

  • There will be a total of 30 questions. To pass, you must get 25 questions correct. If you get six questions wrong, then you’ll have to come back another day to write the test again. You can continue to write daily until you pass.
  • If you wear glasses, please bring them with you for your vision test.
  • If there isn’t an AMA centre near you, please visit the Service Alberta website to search for a registry agent location.

Practice Your Driving

Congratulations…you passed your exam. Now you need some practice. Start learning good driving habits by taking one our New Driver Programs. You’ll have at least a year to practice because Alberta’s Graduated Driver Licensing Program requires all new drivers, regardless of age, to complete one year as a learner before they can take the road test and start driving on their own.
