Informed and knowledgeable drivers are safer drivers! Research has shown that up to 85% of road traffic crashes can be attributed to driver error. There are either “error” or not obeying the Rules of the Road.
On the Arrive Alive website and through a variety of road safety blogs and insurance related blogs we strive to share important advice and suggestions on how to be safer on the roads. This also includes several FAQ’s and answers provided by our Experts. On Learner Licensing our expert is Gavin Hoole from the K53 Website.
“This K53 website is a private initiative by Gavin Hoole, author of South Africa’s biggest-selling preparation manuals since the nineteen eighties for both the learner’s licence and driving licence tests, and a listed independent Expert at ArriveAlive.co.za”
