Road Code now available free on-line

Need to brush up on the road rules but don't have a copy of the road code? Just visit the Land Transport Safety Authority website, www.ltsa.govt.nz, where an on-line version of the Official New Zealand Road Code for car drivers is now available at no charge.

The on-line road code comprises over 100 pages covering the most important points of current New Zealand traffic law and explaining key safe driving practices. It includes hundreds of full colour diagrams and pictures to illustrate road rules and safe driving tips.

Director of Land Transport Safety David Wright said he hoped the on-line road code would encourage drivers to refresh their knowledge of the road rules.

"Safe driving is a life-long learning process, and it's important for drivers to brush up on the basics. Many people won't have looked at the road code since they got their licence - now they can get back up to speed with just a few clicks of the mouse."

The printed version of the road code, including the full list of theory test questions for novice drivers and additional advanced safety tips, remains available for purchase from all good book shops. Separate road codes for motorcyclists and heavy vehicle drivers are also available from bookshops.

The first edition of the New Zealand Road Code was published in 1937. An interactive CD-ROM version of the road code was first produced in 1997, and is now available in several languages.
