Driver examiners are responsible for ensuring only qualified individuals receive a driver's licence. Road tests must be conducted only by persons designated by the Government of Alberta as driver examiners. For information on how to become a licensed driver examiner to conduct road tests in Alberta, visit Apply to earn or upgrade a driver examiner licence.

Registry Agent Offices are the primary sites for road tests to begin and end. On a road test, no passengers or pets are allowed. An exemption to this is when an examiner is accompanied by a government official during a training or monitoring session.

Class 4, 5, and 6 road tests are delivered by licensed driver examiners through Alberta registry agents on behalf of the Government of Alberta. Licensed driver examiners are trained, licensed, monitored and audited by the government. Road tests can be scheduled through an Alberta registry agent.

Class 1, 2, and 3 commercial road tests are conducted by Government of Alberta driver examiners and can be scheduled through an Alberta registry agent or online through the Government of Alberta online scheduling system.
