Pass first time – but only if you prepare well

The South African learner’s licence test and K53 driving licence test are not easy to pass first time if you have not prepared yourself well enough in advance. Often I see posts on the K53 Test Info Facebook page where people say they’re doing their learner’s licence test tomorrow of the next day and need some urgent advice about which study manual to use.

Candidates often display a similar attitude with the K53 driving licence test. Some students think it’s easy and all they need is to be able to start, drive off and steer the car, and do a few manoeuvres like stopping, parking and moving off on an uphill slope.

You cannot expect to pass first time with only couple of days’ preparation. You need to prepare really well if you want success in each of these tests.
