LEARNER’S PERMIT (CLASS 7)

Before you write your knowledge test you must provide satisfactory identification. Acceptable IDs include your Birth Certificate or Passport. In addition, one other piece of ID is required, preferably with a photo. For people not born in Canada a Foreign Passport or Canadian Citizenship card is good identification as it contains both a photo and signature. We also require your Canada Entry documents – Work Permit, Study Permit, Visitor Record or Permanent Residence Card. If you are over the age of 18, you will also have to provide Proof of Residency in Alberta.
THE FOLLOWING ARE ACCEPTABLE DOCUMENTS:
Current (less than 90 days) credit card/bank statement or cell phone bills received by Canada Post are acceptable
Apartment/House rental agreement from a third party property management company

Letter from an employer, signed and dated, on company letterhead. This must be from an Alberta-based company, and must state that the client is physically working in Alberta. Letter cannot be accepted if over 15 days old

Once your identity is confirmed and entered into the Motor Vehicles system you will purchase a permit to take the multiple choice knowledge test on our computers. If you happen to fail the test you may take it again the next day; however you will have to pay the fee each time you try the test. Alberta Registries limits attempts to one per day province wide.
