This study aims to investigate the relationship between learner’s autonomy and creativity. Since many studies had been mainly studied autonomy and creativity independently of each other, this study attempt to find whether creativity and autonomy are interrelated. To this end, 100 EFL learners were chosen to participate in the study. To collect data, Self-Directed Learning Readiness Scale (SDLRS) questionnaire to measure their autonomy, and Abedi’s creativity test to measure their creativity were used. The Oxford Quick Placement Test was also administrated to measure the participants’ language proficiency level. To see the relation between autonomy and creativity, the correlation coefficient was applied. The result of the correlation coefficient revealed that there is a relationship between autonomy, creativity.
