At Capilano Registry we do driver testing for all classes of licenses.
No appointment is necessary to write your Learners, but you must be 14 years old or more. If you are under 18 years of age you must have your parent or guardian sign a Parental Consent Form. Please be in the office 1 hour before we close to ensure you have enough time to do your test.
Study Guides available online here.
LEARNER’S LICENSE PREP KIT
Learner’s Licence Prep Kits were developed to provide a straightforward, hands-on strategy to help students learn the important information necessary for passing the learner’s test, putting them on the road to becoming safe drivers. This video is available for your convenience.
Essentially, the Prep Kits are a series of study cards that condense the Driver’s Handbook into smaller more manageable units of information.
- Key elements, facts, and important details have been summarized and provided in an easy-to-use question and answer format.
- Graphics from the handbooks are included to help clarify concepts.
- Difficult vocabulary is explained.
- Hints for learning information are provided.
Before you write your knowledge test you must provide satisfactory identification. Acceptable IDs include your Birth Certificate or Passport. In addition, one other piece of ID is required, preferably with a photo. For people not born in Canada a Foreign Passport or Canadian Citizenship card is good identification as it contains both a photo and signature. We also require your Canada Entry documents – Work Permit, Study Permit, Visitor Record or Permanent Residence Card. If you are over the age of 18, you will also have to provide Proof of Residency in Alberta. The following are acceptable documents:
- Current Utility Bills (i.e. Telus home phone, Epcor, Atco, Direct Energy, Cell Phone bills, Credit Card Bills etc.
- Rental Agreement with third party management.
- Mortgage or Land Title / Property Assessment documents.
- Mailed Bank Statements, or Cancelled cheques.
- Letter from an employer, signed and dated, on company letterhead. This must be from an Alberta-based company, and must state that the client is physically working in Alberta.
- Proof of filing taxes in Alberta or a current T4 slip.
- Statement of Social Assistance or Employment Insurance benefits.
Once your identity is confirmed and entered into the Motor Vehicles system you will purchase a permit to write the knowledge test. If you happen to fail the test you may take it again the next day; however you will have to pay the $17.60 each time you try the test. After you pass your knowledge test you will be given a vision test which you must also pass.
Road test bookings can be made in person or online.
We ask that you come for your road test about 15 minutes early for check-in; this will ensure that all road tests are completed on-time. Please bring your driver’s license with you. If you are using your own vehicle, or a vehicle you have borrowed, please bring your vehicle registration and proof of insurance (digital or paper). We recommend you double check this before your test day to make sure that both are valid, and that the name on the registration matches the name on the insurance.
The examiner will do a brief inspection of the vehicle to make sure the brake lights, signal lights and door latches are working properly. Full details of vehicle requirements will be emailed to you after you’ve booked your test.
If you have passed, please proceed directly to the any of our Agents. We will test your eyes and re-class your license. Your Class 7 license will be shredded and you will receive an interim paper license (no photo) which you can use to drive until your actual license arrives in mail, usually within 2 weeks.
If you do not pass the test you can take it again as soon as the next day. You will need to purchase & book another road test.
The requirements for each class of license is different. All details can be found here

Drivers who have been previously licensed and are coming off suspension or drivers who are applying for a restricted or interlock license do not always need to pass another knowledge test.
If you have any insurance concerns at this time you can discuss them with an insurance agent at our location.
