K53 is a Graduated driver licensing systems (GDLS) designed to provide new drivers of motor vehicles with driving experience and skills gradually over time in low-risk environments. Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) first commenced in Australia in the mid 1960s with New South Wales introducing provisional licences on 4 January 1966. Learner licences had been in use since 1952. The provisional phase was for 12 months and had 40 mph (64.37km/h)speed restriction. Today in all Australian states, newly licensed drivers are required by law to display P-plates for varying lengths of time. The P is usually a red or green letter on a white background or a white letter on a red or green background (Victoria & Western Australia only). In New South Wales and Victoria there are two classes of provisional licence, red P-plates are for the first year after passing the Learner test and then after passing a computerised test they are green for two to three years. Western Australia requires six months of red P-plates, where provisional drivers are under a 12 am – 5 am curfew, and one and a half years of green P-plates. In South Africa, a time-based graduated licensing system is used. To attain a full driving license, an individual must first attain a 'Learner's license'. The individual must be 16 to obtain a motor cycle learner's licence; 17 years old to be able to attain a learner's license to operate a 'light motor vehicle', and 18 years old to be able to attain a learner's license to operate a heavy duty motor vehicle. Once the learner's license is issued, the individual has two years to attain their full license.The K53 system is the correct standard. We provide learner drivers with a K53 study manuals and also locate a qualified, professional driving instructor near you. It is recommended that learner drivers secure the assistance of a qualified, professional driving instructor. The number (53) given was based on proposals submitted in the 1980's and then the reworked versions were upgraded numerically.
