Parental Consent
If you are under 18 years old and applying for a driver's licence your parent or legal guardian with proof of guardianship, must accompany you to a registry to sign a consent form on your licence application and COVID-19 liability waiver. If you are bringing a legal guardian other than a birth or step parent, please contact the registry to determine what documentation will be required.

One test per day
Only one road test per licence class can be booked at a time, and you may only take one road test for each licence class per day.

Fines:
If you have any overdue fines they must be paid before you can take your road test.

Vehicle requirements:
The vehicle you provide for road testing must be in good working condition and meet all the requirements listed at https://albertadriverexaminer.ca/road-test-policies.php. If your vehicle does not meet the requirements your road test will be cancelled, and you will not receive a refund.

Condition codes:
If you have a condition code on your operator's licence that requires you to take periodic road test examinations required by driver fitness monitoring, you may not be eligible to book online. Please contact the registry where you plan on taking your test before you book online.

Out of province driver's licence:
You must hold a valid Alberta Operator's Licence to be eligible for any road tests regardless of the class. If you have an operator's licence from another province or state, you must transfer your non-Alberta operator's licence to the Alberta equivalent before you can take your road test. If there is any doubt to your eligibility status, please contact the registry where you plan on taking your test and confirm your eligibility status before you reserve online.

Reinstatement Conditions:
Individuals who must take their Class 5 basic road test as a reinstatement condition must first be eligible.
Usually a date of eligibility is associated with the reinstatement condition. If you plan on reserving and purchasing your road test online, you should ensure that you are eligible to take the respective road examinations, to prevent the forfeiture of your fees.
