We offer every class of knowledge test available (including MELT 1 and 2 testing). In order to write an exam the client needs to bring in passport, birth certificate, or government issued identification card. Government policies do state that registry offices need to have their testing stations in a central location. This ensures the exam is not compromised in any way. That being said, we encourage our clients to bring in head phones (class 7 testing only), in case our office is busy or the client has troubles focusing in public areas. This allows the test to be read aloud to the client and helps with their focus levels.
Our office now offers the option to book road tests in person or online through the website below:
However, if the client chooses to book online it is the client's responsibility to know they are eligible to take the road test of their choice. Refunds will not be given to client's who book online and end up being ineligible to take their test. Examples that would cause ineligibility are, if there are fines on the file, if the client is suspended, or if they haven't fulfilled the minimum probationary period.
Cancellation Policy: To cancel a road test, you must give a minimum 24 hours notice (from the scheduled test date) to re-book OR receive a refund. All tests cancelled within the specified time, and who would like a refund will receive the cost of the test back in the form of a check mailed DIRECTLY from the government. Lacombe Registries is not responsible for issuing any refunds.
Any tests missed or cancelled outside the specified cancellation time will NOT be eligible for any refund or rescheduling.
ROAD TESTS AND COVID:
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 the Government has released a limited amount of road tests. At this time, road tests are only being released (at random) approximately 45 days in advance. That being said if you are searching outside that 45 day window, it will show that no tests are available. If you are searching within the 45 day window, and it says that there are no tests available (anywhere) unfortunately that is the case for the specific test you are searching for. Our recommendation is to keep checking back as much as possible, to ensure you are seeing the most recently released schedule. For any additional concerns or questions regarding road tests please contact Alberta Transportation directly at 780-427-8230, as they're the ones responsible for the road test system/scheduling.
