I've lost my course completion certificate. Can I get another copy?

Can I use the Drivers EDge car for my road test?


Yes! If you are a student of Drivers EDge we can arrange to have a car available for you to take on your road test. Please call the Drivers EDge office before booking a road test or there is no guarantee a car will be available. The cost is $65 for the basic road test and $80 for the advanced road test.

Do I have to have my class 7 license to take the course?


We highly recommend that you have your learners license before taking the course. However, we do understand that sometimes passing the written test for your learners license can be hard. We’ve had a lot of success with students taking our classroom then immediately taking the learners written test and passing! Please understand that the driving portion of our program can not be started until you have your learners license. Our student policy states that driving must start within 3 months of the classroom session or the course is forfeited.




How do I book driving time?


After you register in the course you can call our office to schedule your driving before the class starts! Otherwise, driving can be scheduled in the classroom. Call Drivers EDge in Lethbridge: 587 – 813 – 5050 Medicine Hat: 403 – 526 – 9505 Toll Free: 1 – 866 – 999 – 9505




Can I just do driving (in-vehicle) and not take the classroom?


Yes we do brush-up lessons, but if you don’t take the entire course we can not issue a course completion certificate to receive a discount on your insurance.




Do you have a payment plan option?


Normally when registering in our program payment is required in full. If you call the Drivers EDge office we can make arrangements with you. Our policy is that minimum of half the fee must be paid before attending the classroom portion of the course and driving time will not be scheduled until the course is paid in full.

How do I book a road test?


To book a road test, you can contact the Drivers EDge office, visit a local registry office, or go online at https://eservices.alberta.ca/. Licenced driver training schools may not receive a booking fee for arranging road tests and cannot collect fees on behalf of driver examiners. Driving schools may no longer include a road test in the course fee. Drivers EDge is happy to book road tests for students with an examiner, but the fee must be paid to the government by the student when booking the road test. If you want to use the Drivers EDge vehicle, the road test MUST be booked through the Drivers EDge office.
