Vuyani Keswa currently drives an articulated truck with two trailers. Always learning, he decided to upgrade his driving standard by understanding what legally registered driving instructors need to do to pass. What an asset he would be with his driving skills in the industry!

Tony Auret attended a K53 workshop for driving instructors in July 2020.

He is dedicated to serving his new drivers very enthusiastically to ensure their success.

Respect for Benodictus Kanyono Shilongo from Namibia, who flew to South Africa to undergo training as a K53 driving instructor. He wants to address road carnage in his home country by excellent driver training.

Congratulations to William Mashaba below on passing his instructor’s test in February 2019!

Will let you know when to take this offer.

Your professionalism shows off well throughout your presentations. Its encouraging to know that your mentor is capable to turn you around and inside out and get the best of yourself. Thank you very much for your outstanding gifts and talents.
