Insurance Reduction Certificate Course:

The purpose of the Insurance Reduction Certificate Course is to coach new drivers to become safe, confident and independent drivers in a variety of situations. A secondary effect of becoming a safe, confident and independent driver is that a student is more likely to be successful on their initial road test attempt.

Upon successful completion of the full course an Insurance Reduction Certificate will be issued to the student.  Insurance companies recognize the certificate and provide grid-step insurance at a reduced price, equivalent to the rate a driver with two years’ driving experience would get (10% off PL& PD for the first two years). Please visit the Alberta Automobile Insurance Rate Board for more info or contact your insurance company.

Please note that minimum provincial achievement standards for classroom and in-car portions must be met to earn the Insurance Reduction Certificate.

License Class Requirements:  In-car lessons require the student to have their Class 7 GDL Learner’s License (or Class 5 GDL Probationary License). Classroom lessons could be taken prior to having a Class 7 license (and may assist with passing the written Class 7 Knowledge Test at a registry office).  As long as students have at least their Class 7 GDL, they can take in-car lessons before starting or completing the classroom component.
