Do I have to have my class 7 license to take the course?
  • We highly recommend that you have your learners license before taking the course. However, we do understand that sometimes passing the written test for your learners license can be hard. We’ve had a lot of success with students taking our classroom then immediately taking the learners written test and passing! Please understand that the driving portion of our program can not be started until you have your learners license. Our student policy states that driving must start within 3 months of the classroom session or the course is forfeited.
How do I book driving time?
  • After you register in the course you can call our office to schedule your driving before the class starts! Otherwise, driving can be scheduled in the classroom. Call Drivers EDge in
    • Lethbridge: 587 – 813 – 5050
    • Medicine Hat: 403 – 526 – 9505
    • Toll Free: 1 – 866 – 999 – 9505
Can I just do driving (in-vehicle) and not take the classroom?
  • Yes we do brush-up lessons, but if you don’t take the entire course we can not issue a course completion certificate to receive a discount on your insurance.
Do you have a payment plan option?
  • Normally when registering in our program payment is required in full. If you call the Drivers EDge office we can make arrangements with you. Our policy is that minimum of half the fee must be paid before attending the classroom portion of the course and driving time will not be scheduled until the course is paid in full.
