We make getting your Firearms Possession and Acquisition License easier.

Firearm Safety Alberta has practice exams that help you prepare for the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course Exam. This exam is needed along with the CFSC in order to get a license that lets you acquire handguns or restricted rifles.

If you are new to handling firearms, you still may want to take the CSFC course.

Firearm Safety Training

Whether you are a hunter or simply a gun enthusiast looking to collect firearms, chances are that you will need your non-restricted possession and acquisition license (PAL). If you are thinking of getting a handgun, you will likely also need your restricted PAL as well. In Canada, a barreled weapon with a muzzle velocity of 152 meters per second (500 feet per second) or higher will in most cases qualify as a firearm and would require a non-restricted PAL at least.

The Possession and Acquisition License is often confused with gun registration. The license shows that you have met specific safety standards when it comes to firearms, whereas gun registration is a means to identify and track firearms. While a PAL is required for any one who owns a firearm in Canada, only restricted and prohibited weapons require that the gun be registered.

Our site addresses the need for individuals to be knowledgeable and safe when it comes to firearms. To get your PAL in Canada, you will need to pass the Canadian Firearms Safety Course Exam, which consists of a written multiple choice exam, and a practical exam. In many cases, the exam is delivered after a 1-2 day course where all of the topics surrounding gun safety are discussed, but that course is not a requirement. Alternatively, an individual can challenge the exam, but will still have to complete the written and practical portions of the test.

Each of our exams includes a bank of questions very similar to those asked on the CFSC and CRFSC exams. We have consistently found that individuals with previous firearm experience have had great luck by practicing with our exams and then going on to challenge the actual exam. There are also those who are less comfortable with firearms and want to study after their course to be certain they can pass the exam. If you’re a seasoned pro or just considering the idea of your first gun, our exams will help you be safer and more prepared for the CFSC exam.

After taking our practice tests, you can review your results on each question and even identify topics that you may want to study more. Your entire exam history is stored for your to review and learn from. If you have a question that our site doesn’t answer, our support team is available to help you get the answers you need.
