Driver Examiners

Alberta Transportation has a mandate to promote the safety of all those who share the streets. Part of this commitment is the requirement for drivers to demonstrate their skill and knowledge in order to qualify for licensing. Driver examiners conduct the road tests and determine if Albertans meet provincial standards.
