Get your K53 Learners Licence - Are you ready to pass your test? - Practise online today   Login

Learning South Africa’s Rules of the Road is a vital part of getting your K53 Learner's Licence. There are around 30 questions on Rules of the Road in the Learners Licence Test, and learners need to score 74% (22/30) or higher in the section in order to pass it. South Africa’s Rules of the Road may look like a lot to learn, but don’t worry, they’re not too bad once you get into “learner's test” mode and get started. You probably know a lot of the rules already! (such as… don’t drive on the wrong side of the road!)

If you read 4 – 5 sections a day, you’ll be well on your way to your Learner's Licence in no time! The Learner's Test is not difficult, but it does require that you study.

These Rules of the Road were kindly provided by the Department of Transport, and are K53-compliant. If you make use of any other resources to study, make sure they comply with the K53 Learner's Test rules before utilizing them. Remember, you are not just learning these rules to get your Learner's Licence, but also to become a competent driver, so make sure you really understand them! You'll need to know them for your Driver's Licence Test, and if you plan on using a driving instructor, they will expect you to know them for your lessons.
