DrivER's Licence Testing

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.


Effective March 1, 2019, Alberta Transportation has changed the way road tests are booked and conducted. Unfortunately, this means we are no longer able to book your road test over the phone. You can either book your road test by visiting us or by filling this online form. Please do call 780 448 2233 with any questions you may have.

Road Testing 

Registrations Are Us also provides road testing services. At the time of bookings, the fee should be paid in person or online in full settlement. When you receive the road test permit, we can arrange to have you tested as soon as the next day based on the availability. We provide fast and easy booking and check-in. Some of the issues associated with the eligibility to undertake an Alberta road test are age, reinstatement conditions, unpaid fines, medical conditions, guardian consent, proper documentation and condition codes.


What Are the Vehicle Safety Standards Required for a Road Test?

You can either bring your vehicle, or we can rent you a late model Toyota Corolla with automatic transmission. If booking online, contact us to check availability of the rental and arrive 45 minutes early to check-in and pay. The safety standards required by a vehicle are:

  • Working brake lights, headlights and signal lights
  • Working horns
  • Working speedometer
  • Brakes should be in great condition
  • Quality windshields
  • Working seat belts
  • Steering should be steady
  • Exhaust systems should not be leaky
  • Adequate side and rear view mirrors
  • Enough fuel for 60 min road test.
  • Current registration and insurance documents

Conditions for Reinstatement

Every interested candidate must be eligible to take their class 5 road test as a reinstatement condition. Before you reserve and pay for your road test online, ensure first that you are eligible, to prevent the forfeiture of your fees. Here are some helpful sites to confirm your eligibility:

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.

Note: 

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.
