Introduction

Alberta Transportation licenses driving instructors under the Driver Training Regulation which can be viewed here under the Traffic Safety Act.

Effective March 1, 2019, all driver training providers including those that do not charge a fee and all driving instructors (including senior driving instructors) require the same type of licence to provide driver training. All existing licensed and certified instructors must reapply for a new licence.
