The goal of our training program is to teach learners to become safe and defensive drivers - and of course
to pass their K53 driving test.
Our learning program covers all the driving skills necessary to pass the driving test. But it does much more.
Our training method guarantee better drivers by increasing awareness of all factors that affect driving: the skills of the driver, characteristics of the vehicle, as well as road and traffic conditions.
Practical driver training is supplemented with printed learning material.
All forms of teaching are more effective if they are structured. At Protea Driving School we follow a “sequence of training”. This training program took meticulous and time consuming planning and input from all our experienced instructors. We also studied curriculums of overseas driving schools as well as the official driver’s handbooks from countries like Australia.
We know what we are doing!
Lessons are scheduled to suit the learner. The only requirement is that bookings must be done in advance. Duration of one lesson is one hour. We recommend that when learners start practicing parking, they book double lessons. Please make use of the guidance of our experienced program coordinators in this regard.

You must please note what he reports, sign the appropriate space on your sequence of
training evaluation sheet, as well as the attendance register at the back of your file.
