    Question Learner's license

    I don't have a license yet, although I'm 24

    I can drive okay'ish in certain cars, but I'm sure I'll have enough time to learn properly.

    Do any of you know of a website where I can learn all the required information for the learners license test?

    I've got a cd here with a small program which I'm going to use and there is a K53 book here somewhere, but I dislike the K53, it's irritating, not very explanatory and I studied out of it early last year and failed the first learners test I wrote.

    I'd appreciate any help and especially the resources I need.

    Thanks a lot

    Christ-mass is NOT for Christians. Jeremiah 10.
    Is the 10 Commandments for Christians?

    Saturday is the Seventh day, Sunday is the first day.

    For learners licence I recommend the yellow "Pass Your Learners Easy" book. Otherwise I'm sure you could download the learners tests somewhere (although I'd prefer to have "legit" learners drivers on our roads ).

    For K53, I recommend going for driving lessons.

    Hope i am not hijacking, but also on the same topic of learner licenses.
    How does 1 go about getting a booking to write the test?
    Has any 1 heard of an emergency booking and a booking that can be done by e-mail, heard it form a friend who made abooking through e-mail @ the centurion testing center?

    I'll go for driving lessons, but that's only if I pass the learners test. Isn't there any sites with step by steps on the tests?

    That book is the best for learners as far as I know. If you can't pass with it, then ask a knowledgeable person who drives to go through the quizzes at the end of the book with you ( hope they're still there , just realized I wrote my learners 11 years ago )

    Those two will have everything you need. You have to pay on SALearners to do tests, but it's nice for learning all the signs and rules.

    Thanks EHV, appreciate it.

    Thanks to PPot and Kosmik too, it seems I found a similar book (it's actually pass easy and another book in one book) for R50 at Loot.co.za

    I'll check it out

    Good Luck with passing the Learners!
    This 1 is actually for my sister, Waltloo isn't much help and the call center even worse.
    Tried 1 recommended driving school and the guy abandoned my sister after taking the R300 bucks just for a LL apointment@ Centurion - end result i had to take her and missed the time for the test, because i never even knew a Centurion testing existed and backed up traffic @ Irene, DS guy didn't even answer his phone!!
    I got mine ages ago Learners=04/05 and Drivers=2006/02/02, will remember that day forever.
    It is worth it to do your DL @ any other place except in GP:Waltloo
    Did mine in Knysna Tazz 1300 with a Extremely heavy double axle trailer , even the Traffic/Testing Officer that was testing couldn't believe that it was so heavy and that it meets requirements, Knysna people are cool/chilled people.
    Just watch out for the small streets and uphill i smoked the tazz's clutch almost while doing the license, luckilly it wasn't mine.LOL
    Passed DL and LL 1 time

    I also got my drivers licence quite late in life (forever to get a booking, too busy to hang around traffic department, etc., etc.) and if there one thing I can tell you to assist you in any way, is that K53 is just a test. Its.just.a.test. So you have to treat it like that and *know* its not the way you REALLY going to drive

    It always got to me that K53 was never the way I or everyone I knew really drived.

    Thanks nic777

    I forgot about this thread the next day and I meant to start studying this week, but I'll get into it I'm sure.

    If any of you have more S.A based resources to share, kindly do so

    Rofl dude. I've seen these tests and it's really not going to help me to memorize it off heart, I need to learn the stuff to remember it.
