DRIVER'S LICENCE TESTING
Obtaining a vehicle licence is a time-consuming process. Registrations Are Us in Edmonton can help you tackle the licence test in a hassle-free manner. If you are 14 years old or more, you are eligible to write a test for your learner’s permit and no appointment is necessary. If you are an adolescent under 18 years of age, you must bring your guardian or parent to sign parental consent in front of a registry clerk so that all your information is verified. Before you purchase a permit to take a knowledge test you are required to provide your satisfactory identification. This can include birth certificates or passports if you are from Canada. For non-Canadians, a foreign passport or Canadian citizenship card will be sufficient. We also require your Canada entry documents, including work permit, study permits, visitor record and permanent residence card.
We are now taking bookings for passenger vehicle Road Testing. Starting on January 5, 2021 passenger vehicle roads tests ( Class 4-6) will be delivered by private driver examiners through our registry. You can either book your road test online via Road Test Booking link or come in and we will assist you in booking your appointment.

What Are the Benefits of Having a Class 5 GDL Exit Road Test?
One of the main reasons why you should take the GDL exit road test is demerit accumulations. If you have a non-GDL class 5 licence, it will not be suspended after accumulating 15 demerit points, while a class 5 GDL licence is restricted to 8 demerit points. A class 5 non-GDL licence holder is allowed a .05% blood alcohol level before a suspension may occur. Another advantage of class 5 GDL road test is that you are eligible to upgrade your class from class 1 to class 4. Another advantage is that you can improve your professional driving as well as look for more career opportunities by upgrading your licence.
In order to take the class 5 GDL exit road test, you must hold a class 5 GDL licence for at least 2 continuous years.
Your eligibility for the test can be affected if you hold any previous suspension.
