You know that motivational quote, “what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” Well, this is truly one of those cases, as there’s no real way to fail – just an opportunity to learn.
We have a few resources you can use to prepare for your test.
Hit the Book
The first thing we recommend is to download a copy of the Alberta Driver’s Handbook and study, study, study. Not the most fun, we know, but the questions on your test will be taken from content presented in this handbook, so make sure you read it.
Test Your Knowledge
Once you’ve read the handbook, you’ll want to test how much you’ve retained. You can do this by taking our Online Practice Exam, or by downloading our free Learner’s Licence Practice Exam app for your iPhone, or Android. Both resources allow you to test your knowledge and get a feel for the types of questions you’ll be asked when you write the exam for real.
If you want more help preparing, we also offer an Online Learner’s Licence Prep course. This course is available to AMA members for $9.99 or non-members for $19.99, and you can complete it in about 90 minutes.

This service is available to AMA members. If you’re under the age of 18 and your parent (or a close family member) is a member, that’s okay too. We can verify their relationship to you in person or over the phone. However, if this is your first time taking a knowledge test, you will need a parent with you at the registry office to fill out a written consent form (provided by AMA Registries agent in person).
There will be 30 questions. To pass, you must get 25 questions correct. If you get six questions wrong, then unfortunately 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 — although you won’t need them for your driver’s licence picture.
If we don’t have a location that’s convenient for you, please visit the Service Alberta website to search for a Registry Agent location to write your exam.
