Thread: Learners License Question

  1. #1

    Default Learners License Question

    Hi

    Im 16, and I want to know if i may apply now to write my learners on my 17th birthday which is the 11th march.

    Or do i have to wait until in 17 to apply?

    If memory serves, you have to wait till you're actually 17 to apply.

    Just give your traffic department a call and ask to make sure...it can't hurt

    I also think you must be 17 before you apply.

    Seeing as it doesn't take so long to get a booking (sometimes under 3 months) and depending where you stay, it can be even shorter with the end of the centralised booking thingy (I'm not sure if it effects just drivers booking or learners aswell)

    I think you have to be 17 already, bookings are pretty quick these days, my brother wrote within a week of booking here in durban

    When I wrote my learner's test a few years back you had to be 17 at the time of application, but when I did my driver's they let me apply several weeks in advance. Initially it was only because the call centre system wouldn't accept bookings from under 17/18s, so perhaps with them having reverted back to manual bookings at each station you might be able to as long as you book for a date after your birthday.
