If you’ve tried to struggle through The Driver’s Handbook to study for your learners test, you know the manual is dense, hard to read, and—let’s be honest—boring.
That’s why we built Zutobi. We condensed all the information from the South Australia Driver’s Handbook, and the best tips and tricks from other states, into bite-sized pieces you’ll actually remember. We also added hundred of illustrations so you can prepare for all tricky situations you may encounter on the roads.
After using our course and SA learners practice tests, you’ll feel confident you can ace the real thing. There’s a reason 95% of Zutobi users pass their learners test on the first try. Sign up with Zutobi and toss your other study materials—you won’t need them.

Is Passing the SA Learners Test Hard?

It all depends on how well you prepare. Many who fail do so because they are not studying enough, or using bad resources to prepare.

Zutobi’s practice tests use questions from previous and current SA learners tests to be as accurate as possible. You can use these questions, as well as all of the other material we offer, as an engaging study guide that you can be sure will help you ace your test.

How Many Questions Are on the Permit Test?

There are 50 questions in total, split into two parts. Part 1 consists of 8 questions about giving way - and you need to get all of these correct to move to part 2. Part 2 consists of 42 questions, of which you need to get at least 32 to pass.

To help you pass both parts with ease, Zutobi’s SA drivers contains additional lessons focused on giving way so you’ll learn all tricky situations by heart.
