Technological Research

Technological Research
A laboratory is a facility that provides controlled conditions in which technological research, experiments, and measurement are performed. Laboratories used for scientific research take many forms because of the differing requirements of specialists in the various fields of science and engineering. In some laboratories, such as those commonly used by computer scientists, computers (sometimes supercomputers) are used for either simulations or the analysis of data collected elsewhere. As an engineering lab, Instructors laboratories builds and test technological devices.

About Us:

Instructor Labs utilizes technology in driver training simulation and Android's flexibility to innovate ways that aren't possible on other platforms by building a mobile App; At the same time publishing training manuals and study guides. Android's reach allows Instructor Labs to get the Training Program out to more people throughout the country, and the diversity of devices and networks means more affordable smart phones for more people. The Beta mobile App contains Facebook Posts, Images and Videos (Video illustrations and Audio Podcasts will be included). The key learning points and the tutorials offered will be reproduced in the mobile app as an aid to anyone learning to operate a vehicle together with a self-study guides.

K53 Training Theory Manual


Rules of the road
The rules of the road are there to regulate traffic flow, to ensure safety, and to protect the rights of individual road users. There are rules for speed limits, lane discipline, parking and lights. It is compulsory to obey the rules of the road, and compliance with this aspect of road traffic law will greatly reduce the possibility of accidents, injury and death on the roads.
Road signs
You must know the meanings of the various road signs, traffic signals and road surface markings, and how to respond to them when you see them on the road. Study the overview given in our K53 Theory Manual well and you will more easily understand and remember all the road signs, signals and road markings detailed in the various road signs chapters of the Manual.

Vehicle controls
Vehicle controls and instruments are items such as the steering wheel (handlebars for motorcycles), brakes, clutch pedal, accelerator pedal, speedometer, and so on. You must know what each control is used for.

K53 Training Driving Program

Purpose and conditions
This is a practical driving program to offer the learner driver the ability to operate a motor vehicle and/or motorcycle. The driving program also equips a driver with proficiency in:
  • handling the vehicle
  • obedience to traffic rules
  • road signs
  • traffic signals and surface markings
  • correct application of the K53 defensive driving system through all aspects of driving
  • coping with traffic problems in practical driving situations

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

  - Summary of Yard and Road test

 What the test covers:
» A pre-trip inspection of the vehicle's roadworthiness.

» A yard test of your basic manoeuvring skills, away from traffic:
     » starting the engine;
     » moving off;
     » turning around in the road: 'three-point-turn' (light vehicles only);
     » alley docking: reversing into an alley, and driving out again;
     » parallel parking (light vehicles only);
     » stopping and moving off on an incline;
     » left turn (light vehicles if towing a trailer, and heavy vehicles); and
     » reversing in a straight line (light vehicles if towing a trailer, and heavy vehicles).

» A road test conducted on public roads carrying traffic, including the following situations where available:
     » obeying traffic signals;
     » changing lanes;
     » overtaking;
     » speed control;
     » turning left and right at intersections;
     » proceeding through an intersection;
     » uncontrolled intersections;
     » obeying yield signs and traffic lights;
     » stopping in traffic;
     » stopping at a stop sign;
     » a traffic circle;
     » a railway level crossing;
     » a pedestrian crossing;
     » entering a freeway;
     » leaving a freeway;
     » passing a freeway off-ramp and on-ramp;
     » overtaking on a freeway; and
     » an emergency stop.
