About this learners test (K53 questions and answers):

If you get the answers right in this test you will know everything you need to pass your official learners test whether its the written or computerised exam. We know this from the 1000s of comments we've received from learners that have already passed using the same material.

The practice test has 3 options, Motorcycles, Light Vehicles and Heavy Vehicles

The sequence of the questions and answers are as follow:

  1. Questions and Answers related to your vehicle class.
  2. Questions and Answers on Road Signs.
  3. Questions and Answers on Rules and Observations.
  4. Results and Revision.

You should start with the questions and answers related to your vehicles class, thereafter you should proceed to road signs, rules and observations and finally results and revision. The final step is where we show you all the answers you selected incorrectly, this way you will be able to brush-up and perfect your score.

Each category contains all the questions that you will find in question paper A, B and C collectively for a particular class and a number of question from the computerized test. For example, for Light motor vehicles we have taken all the light motor vehicle questions from exam paper A, B and C and joined them into one questionnaire. This way, regardless of the question paper you receive on your test day, you will be ready.

What you need to know:

  • To start the test, select the appropriate vehicle class below
  • If you would like to study the questions and answers, you can Enable Study Mode, this will reveal all the answers.
  • To test your proficiency, Enable Test Mode
  • To check if you selected the correct answer, tap on Check My Answer
  • Whenever you tap Check My Answer, the system records your selection for the final tally.
  • To take maximum benefit, we encourage you to signed in to your toda.co.za account, this way you will be able to review all your incorrect answers at the end of the test.


  • Do not rush, take your time and make sure you understand each question before you answer. If you find a question that you don't understand, ask the community.
  • Do not reveal the correct answer until you have tried to answer it on your own.
  • If you are completely inexperienced, you should Enable Study Mode for all the questions and start the test when you are ready.
  • Once you've done the test and you are confident in your progress, start again from the beginning but set a time limit of 50 minutes.
  • Remember, if you fail the official test, you have to re-book again and wait for your appointment date. Rather apply yourself here and pass the first time.

Please note: Although each question shows the correct answer, the purpose of this learners test is not for you to memorise the right answer, this learners test and study guide is to help new drivers understand the rules of the road. Once you understand and apply the correct observations and K53 driving standard you will automatically pass the learners test and become a safe and courteous driver.

The difference between this mock test and the official test is:

  • We've changed the sequence of the questions.
  • We've used similes, the question remains the same but we could present it a little differently. For example: The official test could use the word "railway line" where we will say "train line"

This material has proven to work more times than we can count, for the written and computerised test. We are confident that if you correctly answer all these questions, you will pass your written test. Read the comments from learners that have already passed using this material, you'll find the comments below each vehicle class.

Your examiner will issue you with a random question paper and explain the following:

  • Regardless of the class of vehicle you are writing for, each learner must complete questions 1 to 52, these are general question related to the rules of the road.
  • For the Motorcycle test, in addition to question 1 to 52, you will also answer questions 53 through to question 68.
  • For light motor vehicles, Code 8 you will answer questions 69 to 84.
  • For Heavy motor vehicles, Code 10, Code 11 and Code 14, questions 85 to 100 must also be answered.

This practice test really helped in in preparation for my learners test. I would recommend doing the practice test after going through the K53 Learners manual. It helps to get you familiar to types of questions asked in the actual test. I Passed my test today. Thank you.

Did the online test, but there's no results at the end of the test and I'm logged in. Am I doing something wrong? It just says Total Questions Checked Correct Incorrect 0 0 0 You have no questions on record ! This is where you view the results of the learners test as well as your questions and answers that need revision. It seems like you havnt started the K53 learners test yet or you took a break for way too long! Would you like to start the K53 learners test?
Yusrah Losper on: 14 May 2019 at 12:16
The site is excellent for the written learner's tests; the questions are almost exactly the same in the books. It might not be the same for the computerized tests though, so have a look at the rest of the rules and signs as well if your venue does not do written tests.

Thanks for helping with the app I have just pass my Learners test!!
Joya on: 09 May 2019 at 11:06
Most of the questions on the current test aren't here. If you only study this you'll fail. Please update, it's not fair on kids trying to pass their learners and you're claiming they'll pass with flying colors with this test. It's outdated.
