Cape Town, South Africa, January 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- GetYourLearners.co.za – formerly SaLearnersTests.co.za – has relaunched their website as of January 6th, 2012. The relaunch brings users a fresh look, a new testing system - which is more robust than its predecessor - and a better overall user-experience. Since its relaunch, the site has already helped hundreds of learners.
GetYourLearners is a free website aimed at helping South Africans pass their Learner’s Test. While learners can learn a lot about the rules of the road and traffic signs from the popular South African K53 Learner’s books, they can’t necessarily do a lot of practice through them without buying many books over, which is where GetYourLearners comes in.
Their site provides users with a free online testing system to help hone their knowledge. The system gives users instant feedback on their answers, so they know immediately whether they got a question correct or not. This allows users a fast and efficient way of identifying weak points in their knowledge, and serves as an alternative method of judging their understanding without having to wade through a long list of right or wrong answers, trying to remember what the question was.
For users who prefer to go through a list of question results to gain an overview of their score however, the site provides that functionality too. They go one step further in fact and provide users with progress analysis. This essentially means that results are broken down by category: Rules of the Road, Regulatory Signs, Warning Signs, Guidance and Info Signs, Traffic Signals, Temporary Signs, Road Markings and Vehicle Controls. This listing by category allows users easily to spot gaps in their knowledge – do they need more practice on Warning Signs or Traffic Signals? This new testing system is superior to their old one, which did not give progress analysis, break results down by category or allow users to choose which categories to be tested on.
GetYourLearners also realised that learning scores of road signs could be a tedious endeavour for students, and so brought out their Quickfire Road Sign Quiz, a fast-paced test to help users learn their road signs easily. The test generates questions about road signs at random, and users can practice until they feel confident in their knowledge.
In addition to free testing, the site provides free K53-compliant revision material. It covers everything found in the Learner’s Licence Test – Road Signs, Rules of the Road and Vehicle Controls (includes both light motor vehicle/car controls and motorcycle controls).
Another important component of their revision material – and the site relaunch - is their “cheat sheet”. The sheet – not actually made as a cheating aid – is a list of all the “numbers” learners need to know for their test. The site found that many of the South African Learner’s Test questions are fairly straight forward, but that people have trouble learning all the numbers (such as distances - no parking closer than 6m to a bridge; no parking within 9m of a pedestrian crossing etc). These number and distance-related rules are usually spread throughout Learners’ books, and so GetYourLearners perceived a need for all of those “arbitrary” numbers to be compiled into a convenient list, which is exactly what their “cheat sheet” does. It’s essentially a quick-reference guide of all these numbers so learners don’t need to hunt them down for themselves.
