Watch this space in early 2020……….

Some driving school trivia:
- All driving instructors are required to be registered with the relevant Provincial Traffic Department. And registration is required to be renewed annually.
Not only the driving School. But, the Actual driving instructor. Showing you a Driving School registration does not mean the instructor is registered.
- All vehicles used for Driving School Instruction are required to be insured with Passenger Liability and 3rd party insurance.
- Driving schools are a profit-making business. The more times a student has to go for lessons the more money they make…. Think carefully about this when accepting that special “… 10 lessons for R800 deal….” or anything similar.
- As above, driving schools just love the “Charge per hour..” rule. They just know you’re going to be coming back again and again.
