In South Africa, you can enroll in driving school and start the process of obtaining a driver’s license at the age of 17. However, it’s important to note that you can only apply for a learner’s license at this age, which allows you to learn to drive under certain conditions.
To apply for a learner’s license, you must be at least 17 years old and meet the other requirements set by the South African government, such as providing the necessary identification and documentation. The learner’s license permits you to drive a vehicle, but only under the supervision of a licensed driver who has held a driver’s license for a minimum of two years.
Once you have obtained your learner’s license, you can attend driving school to receive professional instruction and practical driving lessons. After gaining the necessary experience and confidence, you can then apply for a practical driving test to obtain your driver’s license once you turn 18 years old.
