How to Obtain Your Class 7 Learner’s License in Alberta

Class 7 Learner’s License in Alberta

The road to obtaining your learner’s license can feel complex, but it can be a simple process with clear information and a little preparation. In this post, we’ve outlined everything you need to know about obtaining your learner’s license in Alberta.

Understanding the Class 7 Learner’s License

Alberta’s class 7 learner’s license gives new drivers the opportunity to learn how to drive and obtain real-world experience. Knowing the details of how the licensing process works is important for all new drivers in Alberta.


To apply for your Alberta class 7 learner’s license, you must meet these requirements:

  • At least 14 years of age
  • Parental consent for drivers under 18
  • Provide proof of Canadian residency (legal presence)
  • Provide proof of Alberta residency, such as a bank statement / utility bill or lease agreement

Application Process

When you’re ready to apply for your learner’s license, here’s what to expect:

  • Provide identification and consent: Visit Registrations Are Us and provide our agents with acceptable identification, such as a passport or government-issued identification card. If you’re under 18, ensure you have a parent or legal guardian with you to provide consent.
  • Take the knowledge test: You’ll be required to pass a knowledge test on road rules and safety.
  • Take a vision test: The registry agent will ask you to take a short vision test to ensure you’re able to meet driving standards.
  • Pay the fee: You’ll be required to pay a fee for taking the test and an additional fee to have your learner’s license issued if you pass.

Preparing for the Knowledge Test

The knowledge test will ask you a series of questions about road signs, traffic laws, vehicle operations, and safe driving. You can access study guides and practice tests on the Alberta Government website.

After the Test

Once you’ve passed the knowledge and vision test, a registry agent will issue you a paper copy of your class 7 learner’s license—your license card will arrive in the mail one to two weeks later. Your license will be subject to several restrictions, such as having a licensed driver over 18 in the vehicle with you at all times and zero tolerance for alcohol. It’s important to practice often and ensure you’re always driving safely.
