If you’re a resident of Edmonton looking to get your G1 or G2 driver’s license, you may have questions about the number of driving lessons you need to take before attempting your road test. Luckily, we’ve been helping Edmontonians pass their road tests since 1999. So before we tell you how many driving lessons it takes to pass, let’s first talk about why this number is important and what it means for your success on the road.

You will need to take a minimum of 10 in-car lessons to be eligible to write your road test. However, many students will require more than this minimum requirement.

Many factors can influence how many driving lessons you’ll need:

  • your level of experience and comfort with driving
  • what types of mistakes do you make when learning different skills (e.g., parallel parking vs. backing up)
  • whether you have time for one or two more driving sessions per week
