Driver's License Test Appointment
The following is applicable to apply for a code B (old code 8) driver's license test for light motor vehicles in Gauteng.
N.B. Before booking your test, first consult with us to avoid double test bookings. We have many students and we would not be able to assist you with vehicle rental on the day of your test if another student has already booked their test for the same date and time!
Test bookings (appointments) in the Gauteng province are done in 2 steps. (1) Choose a test date and time at a testing station (DLTC) on the Natis website. (2) Go to the particular testing station (DLTC) in person to confirm the appointment by submitting the required documentation and making the applicable payment. See "What To Take Along" further down this page.
Click here to go to the Natis website where you will have to sign into your profile, or create a profile if you don't already have one, choose a service, testing station, test date, test time, etc. N.B. Once you have pre-booked your test date and time online, you (the applicant) must go to that particular testing station, BEFORE the expiry date, to confirm the appointment in person. Below you'll find all applicable information for confirming your appointment.
REMEMBER that once you have booked your test date online, you will not be able to make another test booking anywhere else until that booking has expired on the system.
NOTE that we only facilitate vehicle rental for tests at Randburg Testing Centre (DLTC) and only accommodate test appointments booked for 11am to 2pm. DO NOT make use of the "Request A Slot" function on Natis, as this will select test slots at DLTC's other than Randburg and we will not be able to assist you with vehicle rental for your test!
