Do you need your parent's consent for the learners test?

Updated guidance for minor’s wishing to take their learners test for a Class 7 Learner’s Licence in Alberta, as of March 1, 2022.

Parental Consent is no longer required to take your learners knowledge test in Alberta, if you are under 18.

Valid ID must still be presented and the testing fee paid. 

Once you have passed your learners test you will receive a validated test permit to present to the registry agent. The registry agent will test your vision and if you pass you will be able to purchase your Class 7 Learner’s Licence Card.

Parental Consent is required to purchase your Class 7 Learner’s Licence Card (if you are under 18). Your parent or guardian must complete the Parental Consent Form in person at the registry and show valid ID. If your parent/guardian will be absent when you are purchasing your Class 7 Learner’s Licence Card they may complete the form ahead of time at the registry.
