We are pleased to offer Knowledge Testing (also known as written tests) at all AMA centres.
Road tests aren’t yet available through AMA, but you can take them at other registries around Alberta. Once you’ve passed (we know you’ll do great), come back to any AMA centre to get your driver’s licence. *Cue happy dance*
We May Need to See Your Written Test Results
If you’ve gone from a Class 7 to a Class 5GDL, or from a Class 5GDL to a Class 5, you don’t need to bring a copy of your written test results. For every other Class, we will need to see the original documents showing your test results and the road test permit (this shows that you passed your road test) when you come in.
You may also need to bring a completed medical exam form:
- For a Class 1, 2, or 4 driver’s licence
- If you are over 75 years old
- If you have a medical condition that could affect your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle
What to bring:
Before you can write the Driver Knowledge Test, you’ll need to show the following documentation (ID).
One piece of government-issued photo ID, such as:
- Canadian/Non-Canadian Passport
- Canadian Citizenship Card
- Permanent Resident Card
- Federal Identification Card
One piece of documentation providing Proof of Alberta Residency. Document must include your full name and have your current Alberta address, such as:
- Utility, telephone, gas, or cable TV bills
- Current bank or credit card statements (originals only)
- Mortgage documents or residential lease (originals only)
In all cases, if the person writing the test is under the age of 18, parental consent will be needed and these documents are required for the parent. In addition to this, identification for the child will be required – such as a birth certificate or passport.
Note: To allow time to complete any last-minute tests, and to issue any licenses required to students who pass, we start wrapping up our knowledge testing for the day 45 minutes before the centre closes.
