Overview

The Class 5 driver’s licence classroom curriculum educates new drivers on driving skills and the rules of the road.

Licensed driving schools can choose to:

  • use our Class 5 Curriculum, or
  • submit a curriculum to Driver Licensing Programs and Standards (DPLS) for approval

Curriculum

We provide the Class 5 Driver Education Instructor Guide to all driver training schools licensed to deliver the Class 5 classroom curriculum.

To use your own Class 5 classroom curriculum, see the Class 5 curriculum criteria (PDF, 109 KB) and Definitions of Class 5 Curriculum Components (PDF, 505 KB).

You must complete the Classroom Curriculum Outline and Approval Checklist (PDF, 136 KB) and submit it with your proposed curriculum to DPLS.

You are only permitted to submit a maximum of 3 curriculum outlines for approval.

If we do not approve the third version of the curriculum, you must use the standardized Class 5 Curriculum.

Program materials

You can order the Class 5 Driver Education: A Guide for Students from Alberta King’s Printer.

You must maintain a list of students on the Class 5 Driver Education Student Classroom Record (PDF, 125 KB).
