Alberta Class 5 Basic GDL Road Test - Reclassing Your Operator's Licence
If you pass your class 5 basic GDL road test, you will be asked to do a vision test.
Be sure to bring your glasses if you need them to see distances.
The class 5 GDL vision test will also check for depth perception as well as colour recognition.
Results of the vision test are recorded on your test permit.

Reclassing your class 7 Alberta Operator's Licence to a Class 5 GDL Operator's Licence is the next step.
This means that you are submitting your class 7 Alberta Operator's Licence & your test permit that indicates that you have passed your road test. In return you will receive a new Class 5 GDL Alberta Operator's Licence

Important

You must hold a class 5 GDL Alberta Operator's card for at least 2 continuous year before you are eligible to take the class 5 advanced GDL exit road test which is the next and final step in the GDL process.

The 2 year period starts on the issue date of your class 5 (Basic) GDL Alberta's Operator licence card; not when you passed your road test.

If your class 5 GDL Alberta Operator's Licence becomes invalid at any time, you must re-start the 2 year period required for you to be eligible for a class 5 advanced GDL Exit road test which starts the day you renew your expired licence. This restriction also applies to licence suspensions.

It is recommended that you reclass your Learner's Licence to a GDL Operator's Licence right away, so that you are eligible to take the class 5 Advanced GDL exit road test as soon as possible.

If you are unable to reclass your Alberta Operator's Licence at the time you pass your class 5 GDL road test you can always obtain it later, however, your test permit will expire 1 year from the date you pass your test.

If your test permit expires or if you misplace it, you must re-take the class 5 basic GDL road test.
Make sure you retain your test permit that indicates that you have passed your road test if you cannot reclass your licence right away.

At the time you reclass your class 7 Learners to an Alberta class 5 GDL Operator's Licence, you may be asked to take a driver's licence photo.
This photo is black and white. Headwear must be removed, and only neutral facial expressions will be accepted.
