The cost of an Alberta driver's license depends on how many years it is valid. A learner's license (also known as a Class 7 license) is the first step to becoming a driver in Alberta. A new, more efficient roadside testing system has been released to ensure drivers have timely access to testing while keeping Alberta's roads safe. If you hold a learner's license (or equivalent) from a reciprocal country, you can apply for the GDL exemption to reduce the time you need as an Alberta apprentice driver and you may be eligible to take the Class 5 Basic Driving Exam.
Alberta operates a graduated licensing system, as it helps reduce the risks faced by new drivers, especially when driving in a province with ice and snow.
