This website was created by God. I learnt 2 days before my test only on this website; no K53 book, booklet or any hardcopy material, just this site, I went into the waiting room for my test and saw everyone else studying and learning and I just played games on my phone, 2 hours later I had my learners license in my hand. Just read through everything on this site and you'll be 100%. All the best!!
