Raise the jack until it is supporting but not lifting the car.
Let us help you pass your learner's and driver's licence test!
The jack should be firmly in place against the underside of the vehicle. Check to make sure that the jack is perpendicular to the ground. Remove the hub cap and loosen the nuts by turning counterclockwise. Don't take them all the way off and just break the resistance. Having the wheel on the ground means that you're turning the nuts instead of the wheel.
Pump or crank the jack to lift the tire off the ground. You need to lift it high enough to remove the flat tire and replace it with a spare. As you lift, make sure that the car is stable. If you notice any instability, lower the jack and fix the problem before fully lifting the car.
If you notice the jack lifting at an angle or leaning, lower and reposition it so that it can lift straight up. Remove the nuts the rest of the way. Turn them counter clockwise until they are loose.
Repeat with all lug nuts, then remove the nuts completely. Remove the tire. Place the flat tire under the vehicle so in the event of a jack failure the vehicle will fall on the old wheel, hopefully preventing injury. If the jack is placed on a flat, solid base, you shouldn't have any problems. Place the spare tire on the hub.
Take care to align the rim of the spare tire with the wheel bolts, then put on the lug nuts. Tighten the nuts by hand until they are all snug. They should turn easily at first. Lower the car without applying full weight on the tire. Tighten the nuts as much as possible. Lower the car to the ground fully and remove the jack. Finish tightening the nuts and replace the hubcap.
Put the old tire in your trunk and take it to a mechanic. What you need to know: To start the test, select the appropriate vehicle class below If you would like to study the questions and answers, you can Enable Study Mode, this will reveal all the answers.

Passing oncoming vehicles 8 When passing oncoming traffic, keep to the left and maintain a clear space between your vehicle and other vehicles.
Being overtaken 8 When being overtaken: move over to the left to allow the other vehicle to pass; and do not accelerate.
Predict, Identify, Search, Decide, Execute. Neither of these. The process of defensive driving consists of three groups of actions. Which group can be left out if you are not going to apply the brakes or change gear?
Blind spot, steer, accelerate. Mirrors, brakes, gears.
Correct answer Neither of these. 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.
K53 and insights from Pat Allen
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?

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.

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.
Writing the test
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.
Penalty points allocation: 8 use a vehicle that is unroadworthy or not licenced; 8 fall off the motorcycle or allow it to fall; 8 violate any traffic law, road sign , signal or road marking; 8 make an uncontrolled or dangerous action; 8 fail to wear a suitable safety helmet; 8 touch any boundary line; 8 exceed 50 penalty points for Part One of the test, or 90 penalty points for Part Two; 8 dont succeed with one attempt: moving off; turning left; lane change to the right; or 8 dont succeed within three attempts: moving off and riding; turning speed judgement; emergency stop and emergency swerve; or stopping.
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.Test structure Part One: What is a learners licence?
