Mr Instructor K53 Driving School, Randburg

Learner's and Driver's Licensing the trusted way!

Driver's Licence Study Material

Unlike the Learner's License test, self-studying will not be sufficient to pass your light motor vehicle Driver's License test and it is definitely recommended to do some formal driving lessons with a registered driving school.  The study material will, however, provide you with a platform to work from and refer back to during training.

Please note that the following information is derived from the official K53 Manual for Light Motor Vehicles - compiled by the Department of Transport.  

You will be tested according to the following modules and should be well familiar with each module as they form a collaboration.

Test Report  (Score Sheet)

The score sheet is used by the examiner to keep score and record during the test.  On the score sheet you will see how many penalty points you will loose for each item and also which mistakes will result in failure of the test (blocks marked in black).  A detailed explanation of how the scoring works is described in the Department of Transport's document (part 1) further down the page.

Other Resources:  Self-Study Books

Various self-study books can be purchased from most leading stationery shops like CNA, etc.

Although these books will give you a good background of the Driver's License test, keep in mind that there are some books which aren't compiled or even revised by qualified driving instructors (specifically referring to the Driver's License Section).

Always refer back to the official manual provided by the Department of Transport for accurate information (see above).
