** a motor cycle type vehicle with a maximum engine capacity of 125 cc
** a moped where pedals are available to assist the engine or motor
If you are the holder of a valid code 1 learner’s licence and 18 years old or older, you may drive a motor cycle type vehicle with any engine capacity.
At the age of 17 years or older you may obtain a code 2 learners licence which will allow you to drive any motor vehicle excluding

** any motor vehicle of which the tare exceeds 3 500 kg

Once you have obtained a learners licence, you may drive the type of vehicle for which the learners licence is valid, however, you must be accompanied by a driver licenced for the specific vehicle, except in the case of a motor cycle because a learner driver may not transport another person on a motor cycle.
2. What do I do at the DLTC after my online booking for a driving licence?
** Take your ID document, your existing driving licence card, clear ID photographs (for a temporary licence) and the prescribed fee as per the DLTC.
** Your fingerprints will be taken electronically. You will be required to undergo an eye test unless you went to a recognised optometrist and received a valid certificate.
** On the day of the test, you will be tested according to the K53 testing standard.

** If you pass the driving licence test, you will be issued with a temporary driving licence while your credit-card-format driving licence is produced. The DLTC will notify you via SMS when your licence is ready for collection.
