The first step in getting your driver’s licence is getting your learner’s licence. To get an Alberta Learners Licence you need to take a knowledge test, which you can take at any of our locations. You will take your exam on a computer, and we have some study resources below to help you prepare!
WRITING YOUR CLASS 7 LEARNER’S EXAM
When you’re ready to write your Class 7 Learner’s Exam, come into any AMA centre.
There will be a total of 30 questions. To pass, you must get 25 questions correct. If you get six questions wrong, then you’ll have to come back another day to write the test again. You can continue to write daily until you pass.
If you wear glasses, please bring them with you for your vision test.
