Computer vs Written Learners License Test

Computer vs Written Learners License Test

In 2012 the Department of Transport implemented a New Computerized Learners License test with the purpose to combat any fraud and corruption in the old system at driver’s license testing stations and driving schools.

We receive many calls each week from clients who have passed their Code 10 drivers licence. They request extra training on the Code 8 light motor vehicles though. Training and test requirements for the Code 10 drivers licence are not as intense as with the Code 08 drivers licence, making it easier to pass your drivers licence.
