    Default Cape Town - Which testing station?

    Hi all

    I'm going to need to do my license soon. I've checked the forum and can't find any up to date threads on testing stations in Cape Town.
    I'd like to find out what people have to say about the different testing stations. Are there any to try and avoid, or does it not really matter where one goes for the test?

    Milnerton and Gallows Hill are closest to me but I'd rather drive a bit then end up at a testing station where the testers are known to be excited about how many people they can fail....

    Thanks in advance

    The fail quota is more for cars than bikes, it's much harder for them to fail you for a bunch of silly reasons in the bike test. Make sure your bike is 100% road worthy, otherwise instant fail.

    My sister did her license a couple of years ago at the station in Vredenburg. She lives in Stellenbosch, but the Vredenburg station was dead quiet, so they took her appointment. Didn't fail her for no reason. Worth a look, if you ask me
    Ride so you can ride again tomorrow.

    I did mine in Milnerton just over a year ago. No hassles.

    I also did mine in Milnerton a year and a bit ago and it was fine.
    If you are not sure what to expect get a hold of Brent from Bike Savvy he does the training there at the testing lot off the N7 and he will tell you what you need to know, expect, etc. the course you practice on there is actually a bit tighter than the test one so if you can do it there then you can do it at Milnerton no problem

    Thanks everyone!
    Looks like I'll try for Milnerton. They also seem to have the shortest waiting period, according to the City of CT's website.

    License done and dusted!
    As of last week Friday I am a fully licensed K53 motorbike rider

    Best thing about it is that I never have to write that pesky learner's again.
