Calgary Driver's Licence Registry

Whether you need your first licence or you just moved from out-of-province and need an Alberta licence, come to our licence registry in Calgary. Registry Depot offers the comprehensive testing and licencing services you need to get on the road.

Driver Knowledge Test

To secure your Calgary driver's licence, you must first pass a knowledge test. Registry officials administer the test via an automated system. The system generates 30 random questions. To pass the test, you must answer 25 of the 30 questions correctly.

The test is available in 10 languages, including Hindi, Punjabi, and Vietnamese.

Driver Road Test

Schedule a test with The Registry Depot at our location in Calgary. For your driving test, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Pass the driver knowledge test.
  • Provide proof of your residency in Alberta.
  • Report any pertinent medical conditions to Driver Records.

If you are under 18, you must also provide consent from a parent or guardian before receiving your licence.


We provide driver road tests for all seven licence classes. For general vehicle operation, you need a Class 1 licence. To authorize you to use other vehicle types, the licence classes are as follows:

  • Class 2: Buses, as well as vehicles authorized under class 3, 4, and 5 licences.
  • Class 3: Vehicles with three or more axles, as well as vehicles covered by a class 5 licence.
  • Class 4: Professional vehicles, including taxis and ambulances.
  • Class 5: Light trucks, motor homes, cars, and mopeds.
  • Class 6: Motorcycles and mopeds.
  • Class 7: Mopeds, as well as all vehicles under class 5 for learning purposes only.
