It takes about three years to get a driver’s license and you need to pass through two stages. This system is designed to provide novice drivers with lots of experience so that they can drive with little restrictions.

Alberta learners test is the first step to becoming a driver in Alberta. Also, it is referred to as a Class 7 license. The minimum age to apply is 14 years. However, if you are below 18 years, a guardian or parental consent is a must.

 

What is the Alberta learners test?

Alberta Learners TestBefore having the Alberta learner driver’s license, you will have to pass the Alberta learners test. This written test consists of 30 questions on Alberta’s traffic laws. It is a multiple-choice question test that you can take online from any registered agent’s office.

Moreover, you have to complete the test within 60 minutes. Out of 30 questions, you have to answer 25 questions correctly. That way, you can get your learner driver’s license. However, if you fail to pass the test, you need to wait for another 24 hours to retake the test.

After passing the test, you have to pay a small fee to purchase the learner’s driver’s license. To make things easy for you so that you can pass the test on the first attempt, you should take practice tests.

 

Benefits of Alberta learners practice test:

You have to pass the learner driver’s test to drive on Alberta roads. And, there is no other way. It applies to people who are about to get the license for the first time, has lost their license, and are new in Alberta.

But, preparing for the test and taking it require effort, time, and a significant amount of money. Hence, you will prefer to pass the learner driver’s test on the first attempt. Here are the benefits of the practice test.

 

Get to know before handed – Preparation is important to make sure that nothing goes wrong during the driving test. And, practice tests allow you to get familiarized with the types of questions that you may have to face. Also, they help you to understand the question pattern with different wording for various topics.

In short, you can have a good idea and what to expect from the written test. By knowing a bit about the test before handed, you will be prepared for the test. That way, it increases your chances of passing the exam the first time.

 

You can keep track of your progress – The practice tests allow you to find whether the preparation for the main test is enough or not. Because you have to answer questions on a variety of topics, you can keep track of your progress by knowing the areas where you might need to improve.

As a result, you can prepare for every question that you answered wrong. In short, the practice tests provide you with the scope to strengthen the weak areas so that they don’t create issues the next time.

 

Studying the required material – When you take the practice tests, it gives you a clear picture of what kind of study material do you need. That way, it helps you to understand and concentrate on the areas where you will be tested. As such, you will avoid study materials that do not cover all the topics needed to pass the Alberta driving test.

 

Gives you peace of mind – Preparing for any kind of test bring nervousness and causes trouble for someone who is preparing for the same. Practice tests help you to evaluate your nerves and keep you calm.

The practice tests have an extensive database of questions. So, when you take these tests repeatedly, you won’t be surprised while appearing for the main exam.

 

What do the practice tests look like?

The practice test should mirror the actual thing. It means a good practice test shouldn’t be less than a replica of the actual Alberta leaners test. That way, you can pass the exam effectively and faster. Here is how the practice tests should look like.

  • The number of questions – The practice test for the Alberta learner driver’s test should have 30 questions like the original exam. However, every question doesn’t have a time limit, you need to answer 25 questions correctly. That way, you can pass the test. When you have the same amount of questions that you will have on the main test, the practice test helps you to get familiarized with the study material at your own pace.
  • Kind of questions – Because no written tests could be the same, the practice tests should draw questions from the driver’s handbook. Similar to the real exam, they need to cover topics on traffic law, warning signs, regulatory signs, direction signs, and so on. Apart from that, the practice test should include different rules of the road including parking regulations and road markings in Alberta.
  • Procedure for answering – Each question should consist of four possible answers. Moreover, like the actual Alberta driving test, the answers should be the same. So, you have to read the questions and the answers thoroughly before choosing the one that you feel confident about.

 

Getting ready for the Alberta learners test:

  • Study the driver’s handbook – The Alberta driver’s handbook is the only companion when it comes to gathering knowledge for the main test. It is a valuable resource and you should study the content carefully. It helps you understand the rules of the road and good driving practices in Alberta.
  • Take breaks while studying – Allow yourself a break of about 10 minutes every hour. That way, it helps you to relax and calm your nerves. As a result, it increases the efficiency of your brain and makes it easier to retain information.
  • Evaluate your knowledge – Taking practice tests frequently helps you to evaluate your knowledge. These tests help you to understand the question patterns so that you don’t have any trouble facing them in the actual exam.
