The correct application of the defensive driving sequence is: Search: Look out for hazards on the road. Identify: Identify the type of hazard. Predict: Consider how the hazard may affect you. Decide: Choose a safe reaction. Correct answer Mirrors, Brakes, Gears.

If you are not going to change speed, it is not necessary to look in the mirror, or to apply the brakes, or to change gear. Remember, though: mirrors must be checked every 5 to 8 seconds on a straight road and before every hazard. When driving a motor vehicle in traffic under normal weather and road conditions, what gap should be maintained behind the vehicle ahead of you? You need enough clear space so that if the vehicle ahead should stop suddenly, you should be able to stop safely behind it without swerving.

Enough for you to stop without swerving Enough to avoid bumping the vehicle ahead If you can swerve and pass the vehicle ahead What is the general speed limit on roads in South Africa? Both of these. Indicate your intention. Keep left.

You must use the vehicle indicators or brake lights to warn other road users of your intention to slow down, stop, or turn. You must indicate in good time and for long enough to warn other road users of your intention.

Each test has a different set of questions. For thorough preparation for the official test we recommend that you do all three tests, and that you aim for full marks for each test.

Instructions 1. Start at TEST A and read the first question carefully Read the question again to make sure you understand what is being asked. Read the multiple-choice answer options beneath the question. Decide which option or combination of options reflects the most correct answer. Circle the reference A, B, or C of the answer you have decided upon. When youve answered all of the questions in TEST A, check your answers against the correct answers given on page Do that test again until you can answer every question correctly.

Between now and when you sit for the official test, revise the material daily. It is a good idea to do these mock tests again a day or two before you do the official test.

TEST A 3. Which control prevents a parked vehicle from moving? Which controls are used to select a gear? Which control is used to accelerate? Which control is used to change direction or turn? Which control does a vehicle with automatic transmission not have? Which control is used to stop the vehicle? Which controls are used to make a sharp turn to the left or right? The driving test measures a drivers proficiency regarding: the handling of a vehicle; obedience to traffic rules, road signs, traffic signals and surface markings; correct application of the K53 defensive driving system through all aspects of the test; and coping with traffic problems in practical driving situations.

You may not do the driving test in a light motor vehicle that is less than 3 m in length. During the test, smoking and the use of cellular phones are not allowed.

What the tests covers The tests consist of the following: Light and heavy motor vehicle test: 8 A pre-trip inspection of the vehicles roadworthiness. Time limits for completing the test Motorcycles: No time limit Light and heavy motor vehicles yard test: 20 minutes plus 59 seconds grace period including the pre-trip vehicle inspection.

If you pass the yard test you will continue with the road test which will take between 20 and 45 minutes. You will fail the yard test and the test will be discontinued if: 8 you exceed the time limit of 20 minutes and 59 seconds for the pre-trip inspections and the yard test manoeuvres; 8 you have been allocated more than 50 penalty points see next topic Scoring method ; or 8 you fail any one of the immediate fail items in any manoeuvre see next topic Scoring method.

The stopwatch will be stopped after completion of each of the following, and re-started before the next item: 8 the instructions for the pre-trip inspections; 8 each yard test manoeuvre; and 8 the road test. Scoring method The examiner will use a score sheet to evaluate your performance during the test.

You may accumulate a certain number of penalty points during each part of the test see next page. If you score more than this allowance you will fail the test.

Besides the penalty points applicable to specific manoeuvres and road test situations, throughout the test you will also be allocated penalty points each time you make the following errors: 8 not showing courtesy towards other road users: 1 8 not checking in the mirrors every 5 to 8 seconds: 5 8 looking in the mirrors for too long: 1 Some items do not carry penalty points and must be completed correctly in order to continue with the rest of the test.

If you are unsuccessful in any of these immediate failure items, the test will be stopped immediately and you will have to reapply to do the test some other time. O VERV IEW 81 Immediate failure items You will fail the test and it will be stopped immediately if you make any of the following errors: Light and heavy motor vehicle test: Motorcycle test: 8 use a vehicle that is unroadworthy or not licenced; 8 have a mechanical failure of the vehicle; 8 violate any traffic law, road sign, signal or road marking; 8 make an uncontrolled or dangerous action; 8 be involved in a collision you could have avoided; 8 bump any obstacles, mount a kerb or touch a boundary line; 8 fail to complete a manoeuvre within the allotted number of attempts; 8 allow the vehicle to roll forward or backwards; 8 fail to demonstrate that you can give a hand signal correctly when instructed to do so; 8 exceed the minute time limit for the yard test; 8 exceed 50 penalty points for the yard test; or 8 exceed 8 penalty points per minute during the road test.

Writing the test

Penalty points allocation: Vehicle rolls back or forwards Touch any obstacles Not successful in the number of attempts allowed observation Signal intention Moving off Counter-steering Signal cancelled With each yard test manoeuvre weve included a table that shows the number of penalty points that can be allocated for any errors in executing the various elements in that manoeuvre, e.

Penalty points are given for any action that: 8 you do, but which should not be done, e. For example, if you forget to do a observation during a particular manoeuvre which requires that action, you will be penalized 5 points. Similarly, if you do not signal your intention when it is needed, that can cost you 5 points.

The higher the number of penalty points allocated to an action, the more important it is for you to do it correctly. A shaded box indicates an element you must do correctly or you will fail the entire test immediately. Note: For the road test, where a manoeuvre applies in several situations, the penalty points have not been shown every time.

For example, the K53 action steps for stopping or for moving off must be applied every time these form part of a driving manoeuvre, such as at intersections. Look to the front, sides, in the mirrors and blind spots. Look up and down crossroads and vehicle entrances for any vehicles and pedestrians.

Signalling 8 Check in the rear-view mirror s and appropriate blind spot, if applicable, e.

However, you must check in the rear-view mirror s before braking commences. The examiner will accompany you to the vehicle, where a pre-trip exterior inspection will be conducted prior to entering the vehicle.

The examiner may allow minor defects to be rectified; however, no extra time will be allowed for this. If any of the items indicated on the test report under the headings Pre-trip inspection are found not to be operating, the vehicle will be considered unroadworthy and the examiner will record a fail and immediately discontinue the test.

You will not be penalized for the following: 8 if you dont execute the pre-trip inspection in an anti-clockwise direction; 8 if you dont raise the windscreen wipers from the windscreen; 8 if you check one wheel and only later refer to the other wheels; or 8 if you dont check both sidewalls of a tyre for damage.

Well Caltex have a directory where you can search for your nearest Caltex petrol station. How to change a tyre 1. Many cars have molded plastic along the bottom. If you don't place the jack in the right spot, it will crack the plastic when you start lifting.

If you're not sure about the right place to put the jack, read your owner's manual. For most modern uni-body cars, there is a small notch or mark just behind the front wheel wells, or in front of the rear wheel wells where the jack is intended to be placed.

Check to make sure that the jack is perpendicular to the ground 6. Use the wrench that came with your car or a standard cross wrench. Your wrench may have different sizes of openings on different ends. A correctly-sized wrench will slip easily over the nut, but will not rattle. It can take quite a lot of force to break your lug nuts free. If all else fails, you can use your body weight or stomp on the wrench be absolutely certain you are turning it the right way - counter clockwise.

A cross wrench will give you much more torque than a standard single-handled wrench. Take care to align the rim of the spare tire with the wheel bolts, then put on the lug nuts Using the wrench, tighten the nuts as much as possible.

To ensure the tire is balanced, don't completely tighten the nuts one at a time. Going in a star pattern around the tire, one nut across from another, give each nut a full turn until they are equally tight. Next to or within 1.
