Get your driver’s and learner’s licence in March

Whether you’re getting your learner’s licence or your driver’s licence, here’s what you need to do and what you need to have with you.

For your learner’s, the first step is to go to the nearest Driving Licensing Testing Centre (DLTC) to book a test date and confirm the booking.

You also need to state what licence you are booking for; this is done by means of codes based on the type of vehicle you will be driving.

After that, you will be sent to book and confirm your date and time of testing. You will also be required to pay the booking fee.

A learner’s licence is valid for 24 months.

When it comes to obtaining a driver’s licence, you would first have to pass your learner’s test.

After this, you will need to attend driving lessons with a registered driving school or instructor until you (the applicant) are comfortable or competent enough to take the driver’s test.

The driving test has two components: the first is the yard test in which the applicant demonstrates various parking and turning manoeuvres in a specially constructed parking lot.

If the yard test is successful, there will then be a road test in which the applicant will demonstrate their driving ability on the public roads, with an the examiner present.

Errors such as a collision, speeding or rolling backwards when taking off will result in instant failure.

Other errors cause the driver to lose points; if too many points are lost, this will also cause failure.

If the applicant is successful, they will be issued with a Temporary Driving Licence, which is valid for 6 months from the date of issue.

A permanent card licence will be available for collection by the individual at the testing station where the applicant took the driving test within 4 to 6 weeks.
