About Us

Got Wheels? is the first choice in modern K53 tuition.  It’s not a just course, it’s a learning experience.  When you or your teenager (17 years old or more) joins a Got Wheels? workshop, you can both be guaranteed two days of fun and collaborative-styled learning.  Got Wheels? provides the learner with the latest in interactive learning and presentation methods – studying out of a just another text book, for a week and late at night after a tiring day at school or work is a thing of the past as Got Wheels? uses our own Training Manual, also allowing the tutor to walk around the room and highlight, make notes, draw diagrams, etc. on the on the board for the learners to see.  The tutor is then also able to tend to each one individually as he / she is not required to stand alone at the front of the room anymore.  Our head tutor at Got Wheels is a trained teacher, specialising in remedial therapy and assistants are either studying toward a career in teaching or have past experience in the field of teaching, child and educational psychology, etc.

Each learner also receives a welcome pack including the Got Wheels? Learner’s Workbook and our very own “L” sticker for you to use after you’ve passed the official test as well as lunch (any specific dietary requirements are also taken into consideration) so as to take some time to relax, reenergise and socialise with the other learners before taking on the second half of the workshop on both Saturday and Sunday.  Snacks are available to buy so remember to bring along some cash.  Please note that lunch is not provided (nor are snack for sale) for private lessons conducted at our office in Florida Hills, Roodepoort.

Please take a look at and like our Facebook for more about what it is that we do, we’d love to hear from you!

FAQ’s

What sets Got Wheels? apart from the rest? I mean, what am I essentially paying for?

Got Wheels? is the first choice in modern K53 tuition.  It’s not a course, it’s a learning experience.  When you or your child joins a Got Wheels? workshop, you can both be guaranteed two days of fun and collaborative-styled learning.  Got Wheels? provides the learner with interactive presentation tools – studying out of a just another text book, for a week and late at night after a tiring day at school or work is a thing of the past as Got Wheels? uses our own Training Manual, also allowing the tutor to walk around the room and highlight, make notes, draw diagrams, etc. on the on the board for the learners to see.  The tutor is then also able to tend to each one individually as he / she is not required to stand alone at the front of the room anymore.  Our head tutor at Got Wheels is a trained teacher, specialising in remedial therapy and assistants are either studying toward a career in teaching or have past experience in the field of teaching, child and educational psychology, etc.

I’ve heard that Got Wheels? employs a certain learning method. Please tell me more.

Our head tutor at Got Wheels? has been teaching both here and abroad for a number of years and has developed a way of learning which has helped many students pass the first time around – not just their learner’s tests might I add!

The bulk of the workshop consists of a practice test in which the tutor will go through each question and you as the learner are expected to make use of the Learning Method.  After having attempted a few questions, you will realise that it goes faster and faster and soon enough you will be doing it without looking back at the steps outlined in the Got Wheels? Learner’s Workbook provided.  Take a look at question 5 for more about that.

Basically, if you apply the learning method correctly, the theory is that you should arrive at the correct answer.  However, should all else fail then use the process of elimination – how to do this most accurately in terms of the test will be covered in the workshop too, so there’s no need to worry!

Is it true that most stations are now using a computerised test and others not?

Some do still make use of the older, written test but most have been computerised.  It is best to call the centre where you have made your booking to make sure well before you are to write your test.  Got Wheels? can provide you with the contact details and any other relevant information as to a DLTC (Driving Licensing Testing Centre) near you upon request.

Regardless, do not be fooled by anybody who tells you that they “have the test.”  Whatever that person may have, has been illegally removed from a DLTC and is most likely outdated or incomplete.  What the learner acquires by joining a Got Wheels? workshop is all that he / she will need in order to pass the official test – written or computerised.

The same goes for mobile applications that can be downloaded onto your smartphone or tablet as well as websites.  Do not fall prey to what may seem like a quick and easy route as to learning the K53!

Do I still need to buy a copy of one of the national K53 manuals available at say, a book or stationary store?

No, you do not need to buy a copy of or study anything from the national K53 once you have completed the Got Wheels? workshop.  We work directly from our own Training Manual because there are contradictions in the several available editions of the K53 which tend to cause confusion as to what is / isn’t relevant anymore.  The Got Wheels? workshop is also designed to facilitate any kind of remediation such as learning, language and cultural barriers by means of our own learning method, entirely unique to Got Wheels?

Will the learner receive some form of study material to take home?

Yes, as a paying client you will receive the Got Wheels? Learner’s Workbook which contains all the necessary information for both learner and parent/s, such as how the official test is structured and what is required to pass it, a step-by-step guide as to how to apply the Got Wheels? Learning Method to each question, a practice test which is conducted during the workshop and summary of contents to go through before writing the official test.

This workbook also contains a tear-out sheet with a convenient check-box list to use before and when making the booking ensuring that you are fully prepared when arriving at a DLTC for the first time.  This sheet is very important!

Is Got Wheels? able to guide the us along the process of making a booking in order to write the official test at a DLTC for the first time?

Yes, both learners and parents or guardians will be made fully aware of what is required in order to make a booking at a DLTC during the Got Wheels? workshop.  Take a look at question 5 above for more about that.

In addition to the tear-out sheet with a convenient check-box list provided in the Got Wheels? Learner’s Workbook to use before and when making the booking, ensuring that you are fully prepared when arriving at a DLTC, the tutor will demonstrate filling out a mock LL1 (Application for Learners License) form.  This is the form that you will be given at the DLTC.

Why should I not make a booking at a DLTC before attending the workshop?

You should only make your booking once you have completed the Got Wheels? workshop / revision sessions as your tutor may feel that you are not yet ready to write the test!  If this is the case, the head tutor will speak to the learner and his / her parents / guardians in order to arrange individual revision sessions so as to allow the time and space for the tutor to target specific problem areas.

These sessions are charged for separately at a cost of R350.00 per hour and do not include lunch as they are usually only an hour or two long.  It is suggested that students with any kind of special, remedial needs attend a few of these private sessions.  An individual weekend workshop can also be arranged in cases such as these.  These sessions will take place at our offices in Florida Hills, Roodepoort.

Can Got Wheels? guarantee a pass? Many driving schools do.

Of course not!  Can the teachers at your school guarantee that you are going to pass the year?  No.  Any driving school, “teaching” the K53 that is foolish enough to tell you that you are guaranteed to pass is quite frankly setting themselves up for failure because things do happen – students get nervous and “go blank,” don’t revise before the test, etc.

Many of these supposed guaranteed passes have also been known to be masked as such when in fact the school demands extra money from the client for bribes, basically “buying” a pass.  Got wheels? aims to do it’s best to help you attain your learner’s licence but will by no means accept money for such undertakings.

Remember, Got Wheels? is not a driving school – yet.  We currently focus on tutoring the theory required to pass the official test with confidence however, we do aim to bring in both male and female driving instructors soon as well as a shuttle service accompanying students to the DLTC to make the booking to sit the official test.  We intend on offering the same service when it come to the actual driver’s license test too.

Will the learner receive a Certificate of Completion and what happens if the tutor feels that he / she is not ready to make a booking and write the official test as yet?

Yes, upon completing the two-day course each student will receive a certificate stating that he / she is now ready to make his / her booking to write the official test at a DLTC.

However, should the learner not be ready, then he / she should attend individual revision sessions so as to allow the time and space for the tutor to target specific problem areas.  Please refer to question 7 for more about this.

Once the learner has written and passed the test, what is the next step?

Once the student has passed the official test, he / she will receive a temporary learner’s licence for which one needs to pay a fee of R72,00.  These prices do change from time to time and Got Wheels? will our best to inform the you of such and any other changes that the Department of Traffic may decide upon.

Once you have your learner’s license, you may drive only when supervised by another, fully licenced driver.  It is valid for 24 months and cannot be extended.  You should therefore have learned to drive and passed your driver’s test before your learner’s license expires.

Again, please remember that Got Wheels? is not a driving school – yet.  We currently focus on tutoring the theory required to pass the official test with confidence however, we do aim to bring in both male and female driving instructors soon as well as a shuttle service accompanying students to the DLTC to make the booking to sit the official test.  We intend on offering the same service when it come to the actual driver’s license test too.
