Drink and drug driving
Road rules relating to drink and drug driving, licensing offences, hoons and serious offences such as dangerous and reckless driving are contained within the Road Traffic Act 1974. Due to the complexity of these laws, they cannot be summarised within the road rules search. For more information about these laws, please visit the Drink & Drug Driving page.
If you are a novice driver or are teaching a novice driver, the Drive Safe booklet is an excellent guide to key road rules and their penalties.
