A NEW road rule education tool has launched online to help drivers brush up on road safety knowledge.
The interactive Road Rule Education Online platform provides the latest road rule content to help people better understand safe driving and sharing the road.
Minister for Roads and Road Safety Ben Carroll said the program would be a helpful refresher for long-time drivers.
“We’ve come a long way since many Victorians first gained their license, and this tool is a great way to check the latest road rules and ensure everyone’s safety on the roads,” he said.
“We can all be the reason someone makes it home safely to their families and knowing your road rules is a vital part of that.”
Users can test their knowledge with interactive videos, graphics and quizzes on road safety issues including safe vehicles and speed, as well as right of way, parking, line marking and road signs.
Quizzes include how to share the road safely with others, such as motorcyclists, cyclists and heavy vehicles, and tips for driving in wet weather. Rules about giving way and slowing down for emergency services are also included.
Road Safety Victoria head Carl Muller said the program would benefit all drivers.
“Many Victorians heading out on the roads this year may be feeling out of practice and Road Rule Education Online means you can brush up on your knowledge,” he said.
“[It’s] great for businesses and employees who regularly use the roads for work as well as families teaching younger driver about road rules and safety.”
The launch of the program follows the launch of the learners permit and hazard perception online tests, which have been used to help new drivers build their knowledge before taking their test.
