Smiles Driving Academy celebrates Valentines month with all its students. We decided to take a look at sharing a bit of information around a question we get regularly on our social media platforms and website.

The Big Question: Do I need a learners permit before I can get a drivers license?
The Short Answer: Yes, you need to get a valid learners permit before you would be able to get your driver’s license.

The process of getting your learners permit includes a written test. This test is made up of theoretical questions regarding the rules of the road and how to legally drive on the South African roads.

Smiles Driving Academy has various service offerings that would help you get your learners the first time. For more information on getting your learner visit –

Smiles Driving Academy has a very high first-time pass rate, because of the approach we take with our students whilst taking the learners test.

Our qualified instructors and administration team is always ready to answer any of your questions.
