Road Users’ Handbook

Introduction
Whether you are a new or an experienced driver, the Road Users’ Handbook provides practical information on NSW roadrules as well as road safety, low risk driving, vehicle registration and penalties for driving offences. The road rules are a framework for the safe and efficient movement of traffic on NSW roads. This updated handbook is essential reading for anyone learning to drive, or upgrading a licence. It is also a good way for experienced drivers to keep up to date with changes to road rules and isinformative for interstate or overseas visitors who want to drive. It is well known that young drivers are at higher risk of being involved in a crash. In fact, crash data shows that drivers aged 17 to 20 years are twice as likely to be involved in fatal and injury crashes. In response to this issue, the RTA launched a new licensing scheme called the Graduated Licensing Scheme (GLS). It was introduced on1 July 2000 and is a key component of Road Safety 2010, the NSW Government’s framework to reduce the road toll. The GLS aims to help new drivers gain more experience and become skilled and safer drivers by spreading the learning process over a minimum of three years. For some people, this handbook represents the first step towards gaining a full driver licence. Studying the Road Users’ Handbookwill help you pass the Driver Knowledge Test (DKT) and gain a learner licence. While the handbook tells you all you need to know to pass the test, it also contains some valuable road safety advice and low risk driving techniques that are useful to all drivers. Remember, safe road use is a responsibility we all share – whether as drivers, motorcyclists, bicycle riders, pedestrians or evenpassengers.
