  This guide, along with the Driver’s Guide to
  Operation, Safety and Licensing (Cars and
  Light Trucks) will give you the necessary
  information for learning to drive a truck,
  tractor-trailer, ambulance, taxi or bus.

  These two guides provide information that
  will help you obtain a commercial Alberta 
  driver’s licence. It is recommended that
  you obtain training and education from a
  licensed driving school to enhance your
  knowledge and skill. Driver education
  courses are available for the operation of
  passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles,
  and motorcycles.

  If you require information about schools
  that provide driver education, or
  information about the testing process to
  obtain a driverr’s licence:
  • refer to your local Yellow Pages
  • visit www.transportation.alberta.ca
  (under Drivers and Vehicles)
  • contact a Driver Programs Administrator
  in Edmonton at 780–427–8901 or
  Calgary at 403–297–6679

  You can reach Alberta Government
  offices toll-free from anywhere in the
  province by first calling 310-0000.

  This guide has no legal authority.
  Municipalities are given authority under
  the Traffic Safety Act to pass bylaws in
  areas such as speed zones, school zones,
  playground zones and parking. You must
  know local municipal by-laws.
