In order to get a license to drive a motor vehicle you must first get a K53 Learner’s License. Even if you can already drive, you cannot apply for a Driver’s License test until you have a valid Learner’s License. The Learner’s License test is a written test. You apply to write the test at your nearest Driver’s License Centre, and are given a date on which you will write the test.
To apply for the test you will need:
At the centre you will need to fill in Form LL1 and hand it in, together with your ID book, photos and payment. You will be given a receipt for your payment. Do not lose the receipt, as you will need to present it when you return to write the test.
You will be tested on the rules of the road, road signs, and the controls of a car. The examiner will explain the rules of the test to you when you arrive.
Make sure you arrive at least fifteen minutes before the scheduled test time. You will need to bring your receipt of payment and a further R55 with you.
Your Learner’s License will only be valid for a certain time. If you do not succeed in getting your Driver’s License during that time, you will need to write the Learner’s test again.
The next step: Get Your Driver's License.
Note: Check with your testing centre by phone before going to book, as the costs for booking and processing your Learner’s License may have changed.
