Road test booking wait time.

 Although it is not the service we provide, McKenzie driving school in Calgary continues receiving calls from students who are desperate to book their road test. Since the new government is in place, the wait time for the road test has increased significantly, which affects thousands of Calgary student drivers.

 Senior Instructor Yohannes Ashebo at McKenzie drivers education in Calgary said, we have students who have gone as far as Grand Prairie and Medicine Hat to do a road test.
