How is a Learner’s License Tested?

A K53 learner’s license test is designed to test your understanding and knowledge of the various road signs and markings, traffic signals, as well as the controls of the vehicle you will be driving, whether it is a motorcycle, car, or heavy goods vehicle.


Totally Ready

Bike•Car•Truck

The learners license theory test will contain three sets of questions with multiple answer options; you will have to select the correct answer. Some driving license test centres use computers for the test, whereas other centres require you to complete the test using a test paper and pen. When booking your test it is recommended that you enquire whether you will be doing the test on a computer or on paper, so you can be properly prepared.

With the paper and pen test, you will be given a test book of questions and an answer sheet which includes a book and chart with all the road signs, road markings and vehicle controls. The examiner will give instructions on which set of questions to answer, depending on the category of vehicle you will be driving. If you have any doubts or require clarification, you can ask the examiner before you begin the test.
