Rules of the road

Information on the knowledge and skills required for safe driving, understanding road signs and where to buy/download the rules of the road

Rules of the Road

The purpose of the Rules of the Road is to save lives and prevent injury on our roads. The rules apply to all road users:

  • Drivers
  • Pedestrians
  • Motorcyclists
  • Horse-riders
  • Cyclists

You must have a satisfactory knowledge of these rules to get a driving licence (as assessed by the Driver Theory Test), but learning about road safety doesn't stop once you pass a driving test. It’s an ongoing requirement; you need to constantly update your skills and knowledge and be aware of changes to road traffic laws.
The current Rules of the Road comply with and reflect the road traffic law as at 6 April 2018. It is important to check this website for updates in case of rule changes.
Remember: driving is a life skill that requires lifelong learning.

Where to buy

Copies of the newly updated Rules of the Road book are available through  all good bookshops. A downloadable PDF version of the book is also available on this webpage.
