Clear Language Driver's Guide – Cars and light trucks (2013)

Prepared by Literacy Alberta and based on the province’s official driver’s guide, this guide has been written in clear language that is easy to understand.

Obtaining a driver's license has been identified as one of the top three barriers to employment for low-literacy learners, and this becomes especially significant in rural areas. Literacy Alberta has created this guide to help learners get their licence, and by extension, participate more fully in Alberta's economy.

The reader can use this guide to prepare for the driver’s test. However, the authors point out that this document doesn’t replace the Alberta Driver’s Guide, but can supplement the official guide. Also, training through Driver's education offices is available in the province, sponsored by the Alberta Motor Association.

The document includes chapters on getting ready to drive; traffic controls; driving basics; intersections and turns; highway driving; challenging road conditions and emergencies; responsible driving; sharing the road; driving within the law; and towing a trailer.

The authors have also included a list of driving-related terms and links to sites with more information about driving.
