Class 5 Basic Course

All drivers in Alberta are expected to participate in a licensing process that is completed gradually to provide the skills and knowledge to follow the rules of the road.

The graduated licensing program or GDL is a 2-part process that could take up to 2 years to complete. Typically, a learner at the age of 14 or 15 starts the GDL process by going to an authorized Alberta registry agent location to take a class 7 knowledge test.

Once passed, the student must hold a class 7 Learner's license for a minimum of 12 months without any infractions that could affect their eligibility at the time of a class 5 basic road test. This is the first of the two road tests required to obtain a full license.

Once you obtain your lcass 7 learners license, you can enroll into driver training at any time. Although driving schools in Calgary all adhere to Alberta Transportation guidelines, the quality of driver's ed is very important. Learning how to drive with good habits is ideal for your safety and the safety of those on the road around you.
