Important changes for NSW Learners, P1 and P2 Licence Holders

Caitlin Kerr - Friday, October 14, 2016
A little known change that occurred in NSW Laws in 2013 was to revert to the previous legislative approach of applying speed limits on learner drivers as a licensing condition rather than as a Road Rule. This means that the issuing State or Territory licensing conditions apply when a learner driver is driving in NSW. QLD allows learner drivers to drive to the posted speed limit. This therefore means that there is no supplementary limit on a QLD Learner Driver when driving in NSW as they are permitted to drive to the posted speed limit.

Queensland Road Safety Week is next week! Are you ready to Join the Drive?

Caitlin Kerr - Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Here at Rightway we are gearing up for the Queensland Government's annual Road Safety Week, taking place 22 - 28 August 2016. There are going to be a whole range of activities happening during next week to raise awareness about the topic of road safety, including events such as BBQ's, information sessions and workshops, markets, meet and greets, competitions and more.  The theme this year is Speak Up for Road Safety, which aims to encourage everyone to share their thoughts and feelings on how we can all work together to reduce the Queensland road toll and ultimately make the roads a safer place for all.  There are numerous ways to take part and everyone can participate with competitions such as the #SpeakUpSelfie to go into the draw to win personalized number plates, and the children 'Road Safety in my Town' coloring competition to win an iPad for themselves and their class.  Alternatively, you can participate in the week's festivities as easily as driving safely when you get in your car.  Read More…
