How it works

More information on how it works getting your Drivers License

To get a learner's or driver's licence, your first step is to buy a K53 compliant study guide, and/or sign up for theory lessons. Aspigon offers you a unique package which includes the K53 compliant study guide.

  1. Book lessons with your local driving school or get a family member or friend to teach you how to drive. Because of the complexity of the K53 driving test, we would recommend that you book lessons with a professional instructor.
  2. Get a booking. If you would like us to assist you with this, then we will have to have received payment of our R300 fee in full. You will then have t email us your details and a copy of your Learners License. If you want an appointment date within three days, we can do this at an additional cost of R150. NOTE, this does not mean you will write within three days, you will just know when and where your appointment is.
  3. Within 3 days (provided we can book anywhere in Gauteng) from providing us with the necessary information and receipt of payment, we will send you the booking confirmation. (if you selected this option).
    Once you receive the booking confirmation, you will have to confirm it in person at the relevant testing station, within the given period (can be up to 5 days, but sometimes it's the very next day). Aspigon's driving instructor can take you to do this, the cost will be R150 in Pretoria area and R300 in JHB areas.
  4. In order to do confirm your booking you will require the following:
    • Reference Number
    • ID book + 1 photocopy
    • Learner's licence + 1 photocopy
    • Pay R180 (make sure to get a receipt)
    • 4 black and white ID photos (approx R50)
    • Eye test (to save time at the testing station, get one from your optometrist)
  5. On the day of your test, please make sure to arrive at the testing station well in advance. Don't forget to take with you all documents required (see point 4), together with your receipt for R180.
  6. Please note that when you pass your test, the testing station will charge you R165 to issue your driver's license. You will immediately receive a temporary driver's licence, valid for 6 months.

Motor Cycle license booking fees are R180 for appointment and R165 for the issue.

Heavy Motor Vehicle fees are R190 for appointment and R165 for the issue.

Failure to disclose disqualification in respect of licence authorising driving of motor vehicle prohibited

No person shall, when applying for a learner's or driving licence, willfully fail to disclose any disqualification to which he or she is subject in terms of section 15.

Any person who

  1. is the holder of a licence authorising the driving of a motor vehicle in terms of this Chapter; and
  2. becomes aware thereof that he or she is disqualified from holding such licence, shall within a period of 21 days after having so become aware of the disqualification, submit the licence or, in the case where it is contained in an identity document, that document to the MEC of the province concerned.

When a licence is submitted the MEC shall cancel it and if the licence was issued in a prescribed territory he or she shall notify the authority which issued it of the cancellation: Provided that if the MEC is satisfied that the holder thereof is competent to drive the class of motor vehicle concerned with the aid of glasses, an artificial limb or any other physical aid, the MEC shall, in the case where the licence

  1. is contained in an identity document
    1. not cancel the licence, but endorse the licence accordingly and such endorsement shall be a condition subject to which the licence is held;
    2. return the identity document to the holder thereof; or
  2. is not contained in an identity document, issue or authorise the issue of a new licence in the prescribed manner reflecting the conditions on which it is issued.
A person shall be disqualified from obtaining or holding a learner's or driving licence

The MEC concerned may, if he or she deems it expedient and on such conditions as he or she may deem fit, declare that any person shall no longer be subject to any disqualification, suspension or cancellation by a competent authority referred to in subsection (1) (b), (c) or (d), respectively: Provided that in the case of any cancellation such declaration shall be subject to section 25(9).
