You have to be 18 years or older when applying for a light motor vehicle Driving License

 Drivingmadeeasy can help with license tests outside Stellenbosch but prefer to do tests in Stellenbosch where the learner will have practiced and know the environment.  The Yard (parking area where the test will be conducted) is open for inspection and the test officials are also fair.  This is not always the case in other areas.

If however you prefer to do your test outside Stellenbosch, rates will be charged at R300 per hour.  To check the waiting times for Traffic centres outside Stellenbosch click here

For driver's test in Stellenboch you will need to: 

Book an appointment online on the 'Stellenbosch Citizen app' to get an appointment for your eye test. 

Even if you have a private eye test certificate you will still need to book online. Remember this appointment is only for your eye test/admin and not the date for your test, once you are there will you only be able to make the appointment for your test.
