Learner's License Training

Our learner's license training is aligned with K53.

At the end of the training you get to know all the rules and the signs of the road by head.

If you hold a learner’s license you are allowed to drive only when you are supervised by a licensed driver. If the category of vehicle you are driving requires a professional driving permit, the licensed driver must also hold a professional driving permit.

A learner’s license is a permit that proves that you have basic knowledge of a motor vehicle and the rules of the road. The learner’s license is valid for 24 months and cannot be extended.

Different learner’s licenses are issued for the various categories of motor vehicle:


CODE 1

This is for a motor cycle with or without a sidecar, motor tricycle or quadrucycle. You must be 16 years or older on the date of the test in order to apply if the motorcycle’s engine does not exceed 125 cc and 18 years or older if it exceeds 125 cc.
