A new road rule education tool has launched online to help drivers brush up on their road safety knowledge as more Victorians return to the roads.

The Victorian Government’s new interactive Road Rule Education Online platform provides the latest road rule content to help Victorians better understand safe driving and sharing the road.

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.

Road Safety Minister Ben Carroll said Victorians could make sure every driver gets home safely to their families.

“We’ve come a long way since many Victorians first gained their licence, and this tool is a great way check the latest road rules and ensure everyone’s safety on the roads,” Mr Carroll said.

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 around giving way and slowing down for emergency services and right of way at intersections are also featured.

Road Rule Education Online means Victorians can easily refresh their knowledge and jump in and out of different modules at a time and pace that suits them.

Head of Road Safety for Victoria Carl Muller said the education tool would help drivers re-learn important road rules.

“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 – great for businesses and employees who regularly use the roads for work as well as families teaching younger drivers about road rules and safety,” Mr Muller said.

It follows the launch of the popular Learners Permit and Hazard Perception online tests, which have been used by more than 174,000 Victorians and helped new drivers build their knowledge before taking their test.
