Getting Your Class 4 Driver's License
Steps To Obtain A Class 4 Driver's License
There are three separate steps to complete to obtain a class 4 driver's license.
Class 4 Medical Check
The first step is to complete and pass the medical check for motor vehicle operators. This form certifies that you are medically able to operate a class 4 vehicle. The form can be completed by any physician and must be filled out in its entirety. Medical checks will vary in cost per physician. You will need to bring this completed form to your Class 4 Road Test.
Book an appointment with either your family doctor or stop by any walk-in clinic and request a class 4 medical. The cost ranges between $80 - $140 and suggest calling before booking an appointment
Class 4 Knowledge Test
The second step is to complete and pass the Class 4 knowledge test. The knowledge test questions are based on information from the Commercial Driver's Guide and the Driver's Guide. The test is 30 multiple choice questions and the applicant must score a minimum of 25 correct responses to pass. You will need to bring your passed Class 4 Knowledge Test to your Class 4 Road Test. Registries encourage drivers to spend time studying for this knowledge test.
Class 4 Road Test
The third step is to complete and pass the Class 4 Road Test. You will only be able to complete a road test if you have passed both your Class 4 Knowledge Test and medical check; you are required to bring both forms to your Class 4 Road Test. You can book your Class 4 Road Test at any Alberta Registry. See below for a list of Calgary Registries.
Each registry will have a different booking process for Class 4 Road Tests. You will need to provide valid insurance and registration, and your vehicle must be in good working condition (each registry has different qualifications regarding vehicle conditions). Please confirm with your chosen registry its specific policies and qualifications before your take your road test.
