There’s no pass or fail here — only the opportunity to prepare for your Learner’s Exam. We have a few resources you can use to get ready to write your test.
The first thing we recommend you do is download a copy of the Alberta Driver’s Handbook and study, study, study. Not the most fun, we know, but the questions on your test will be taken from content presented in this handbook, so make sure you read it.
Once you’ve read through the handbook, you’ll want to test how much information you’ve retained. You can do this by taking our Online Practice Exam, or by downloading 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, and to get a feel for the types of questions you’ll be asked when you write the exam for real.
If you feel you want a little more help preparing, we offer an Online Learner’s Licence Prep course. This course is available to AMA members for $9.99 or non-members for $19.99, and you can complete it in about 90 minutes.
Cost for special requests (oral or translated tests, and audio): $31.50
This service is available to AMA members. If you’re under the age of 18 and your parent (or a close family member) is a member, that’s okay too. We can verify their relationship to you in person or over the phone. However, if this is your first time taking a knowledge test, you will need a parent present with you at the registry office in order to fill out a written consent form (Consent for a Minor — REG138).
There will be a total of 30 questions. To pass, you must get 25 questions correct. if you get six questions wrong, then unfortunately you fail and 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 — you won’t need them for your driver’s licence picture.
If we don’t have a location that’s convenient for you, please visit the Service Alberta website to search for a Registry Agent location to write your exam.
We knew you’d do great!
