One of South Africa’s largest and most trusted motoring marketplace, AutoTrader, has invested in making the K53 manuals, including the bike licence help guide, available free of charge to all South Africans.
“Leveraging our reach of one of the most visited sites in the country, AutoTrader’s goal is to champion wider access to the K53 manuals as a crucial step to greater mobility and financial freedom for many South Africans, says George Mienie, AutoTrader CEO..
At the inaugural Motorcycle Industry Stakeholder Summit held in May 2019, AutoTrader presented research findings that pointed to a mostly untapped sector of smaller-engined motorbikes, where the opportunity to solve commuter problems and provide a new source of income is vast.
“Currently the motorbike market is considered for leisure use or status purchases. But bikes between 150cc and 500cc are generally more affordable. This opens up new commuting and even earning options,” said Mienie. “The first step to accessing that mobility is passing the K53 examination.”
AutoTrader’s free K53 bike licence help guide, is available to download and boasts a separate learner’s manual. To download click on the following link https://k53.autotrader.co.za/
