In proposed amendments to the National Road Traffic Act published in the Government Gazette on 8 June 2012: getting your drivers license, which already is a stressful and time consuming process, will take up to 12 months longer.
New technology developed by iDRIVE.co.za now simplifies the process, enabling you to pass your license before the laws change.
Recently launched after years of research and testing, the new system is designed to provide learner drivers with all the training, resources and qualified driving instructors required to become a legal driver.
According to World Wide Worx’s Internet Access in SA 2012 study for the 2012 Netprophet conference recently held in Cape Town, “6,02-million people have access to the internet on computer, laptop and tablet.” This is the audience iDRIVE.co.za has been designed for.
Ben Grobler, owner of My Driving School and one of the first members of iDRIVE.co.za agrees , “ln my experience clients have over the past few years become more e-inclined. This includes internet usage, Facebook, smartphone apps etc. We get a lot of clients from the internet and it escalates every year. iDRIVE.co.za has a good visibility on Google which is to my advantage. I receive contacts from iDRIVE.co.za on a daily basis.”
With over 100 verified instructors, extensively covering the Western Cape, Gauteng and more recently Limpopo, iDRIVE.co.za claims to ‘virtually’ be the biggest driving school in South Africa.
“I am amazed by the 1000’s of learner drivers using the service every week sending hundreds of SMS and email messages directly to the driving schools. Knowing that we only connect them with qualified driving instructors ensures that the education and training they receive will increase the chances of them passing the first time, alleviating the backlog at testing stations. It doesn’t end there though. The system has been designed to scale and cater for any driving instructor anywhere in South Africa. I believe that road safety will be positively impacted by all that use our new and improved system – making the road safer for all South Africans. No matter when or how the legislation changes we’ll always strive to assist learners in passing their drivers licenses with the right help they can be sure of” says Rafiq Phillips, founder of iDRIVE.co.za.
Thanks to award-winning technological and entrepreneurial innovation iDRIVE.co.za has helped countless driving instructors to grow their businesses while providing help to thousands of driver’s on South Africa’s roads today.
