    You don't leave the yard, first you have to do a bike inspection then part 1 and 2, believe me you need the lessons or will fail, you ride around the yard like a noddy dog checking blind spots and shit, if you don't do it you fail.

    Learners is a test only. You can legally then pilot up to 1000cc without a pillion. So in essence they just testing your learning capabilities and you are not allowed to kill any passengers with someone like a Yammy M1 or Kawa HP 2.

    Also slightly silly as you can get a learners at 16. Which then limits you to 125 or smaller with not pillion but it inly lasts 18 months and it takes roughly 2 years to turn 18.

    I had to do a 125 License as my learners would've expires and then when I was 20 i did my license on a GS800 after going for 1 refresher lesson on a bajaj pulsar 180.

    You do 90% of the test on a piece of tarmac the size of a netball court.

    They have a Christmas tree simulating the back of a bike that is stationary bike. You basically play chicken with itand then have to react to the signs but in a short space you need to get the bike between 22-27kmph (iirc). Then at maybe a little kess speed you have to do a corner to both sides and atay between the lines roughly 1m apart and then emergency stop and hill take off.

    Takes about 10-15min.

    Done learners at 16, then license at 17. Had to redo exact same learners and license test at 18 for a bigger bike. Go figure. Both occasions I was made to follow testing staff out of yard behind his vehicle after yard test for a short loop. Its really easy if you know how to ride. However, at least 2 lessons are needed. Do it on a small bike if your local testing ground has stones on the hill like my towns. I done mine on a stunt bike and spun on the hill. Luckily the testing guy also rides and knew the 400 bandit stunt bike I was on with 125 stickers was not exactly the ideal bike for slow pull offs. (he asked me to show him a wheelie outside the yard). Gotta love Africa.

    I got a bike licence in 1978 (yes, they even had them then). Did learners on a Monday and licence the next Monday. I had a Honda 750 with a Kerker pipe, the licence department and testing blokes were all drooling so the test lasted about 3 mins, once around the block with nobody with me

    @NUMSCH - Alot has changed with road signs and road markings, was the only issue I had every 2 years with my learners, I can suggest get the latest k53 book and hammer on the rules of the road and road signs

    -Did my license at Marlboro testing station and they plugged me twice every time saying they can make it a pass for some lunch, I ended up going to Florida and doing my test there, I did it on a 1200GS, its nothing hard at all, if you comfortable on the bike you will manage it all with no issues, its a yard test takes about 30min depending how quick the tester is, no road test at all, rear brake is your friend for pull offs :-)
