Need to do Licence before 30 June HELP PLS
« on: June 04, 2013, 11:46:58 am »
Morning Chaps

It is with a bit of mild panic I'm writing this, I did (attempted) my bike licence this morning, passed all of the test up until, the lady testing me said that during the first speed test I was going 19kmph, which was too slow, when I crossed at 26kmph on my second attempt it was to FAST. Instant fail!  :(
Anyway, these things happen, now my problem is that my learners will expire on 30 JUNE 2013.

When I tried to book this morning at RANDBURG, the lady making the bookings said they are full up until end July, and can't make a booking cause my learners would've expired by then.

Do any dogs know of a licensing dept that is accepting bookings BEFORE 30 June? I dont mind loading the bike onto my bakkie and driving out of the way if it means I can get it sorted.

Thanks a lot....

Try to get a booking via a driving school. 
They often can help you out earlier.

HAHA  :laughing4: :laughing4: :laughing4:

Nic500, the sketchy "speed trap" could've been the problem, it was my fault regardless! 1kmph faster would've been fine!!!!   ??? ???:ricky:
As for the testing lady, she looked like she definitely enjoys a streetwise 2!

@Sláinte Mhaith, they have banned testing schools from making bookings, has to be done by the person doing the licence...

Try 2Riviere testing station near Vereniging, not sure in what area you are in.
Last time I know of you could do test within 7days.

I had a similar issue with needing a license for an overseas biking trip and a learners was not acceptable. Tried everywhere in a proper panic, but only Westonaria was able to help. Bonus is the lady that does the testing is a really proper Afrikaans girl. Did the test with the 990 and then spent 2 weeks on a GSA in the Alps. Good times.
