Class 5 GDL Basic Course Registration

The basic class 5 GDL course is designed for drivers with or without prior driving experience. Whether you have just obtained your class 7 learner's license or have been driving for years from out of province; Alberta Driver Education & Training offers the perfect driver education package for your needs.

Our driving instructors will begin slowly and provide demonstrations so that you can familiarize yourself with the vehicle. The instructor will monitor the student’s progress to assess their level of knowledge, ability and confidence when driving on the road. A customized route will be designed for the student by the instructor once they understand the student’s strengths and weaknesses. This allows the student to develop properly while learning through the modules of the driving school curriculum specified by Alberta Transportation Board.
