Learner activities and resources

Resources are available to help you during the six steps of obtaining your driver's licence.

  Drive Safe and Ride Safe handbooks

The information in these handbooks align with Towards Zero, the State Government road safety strategy 2008-2020. The strategy means that we, in the WA community, do not accept that any person should die or be seriously injured on our roads.

The Drive Safe and Ride Safe handbooks are owned and maintained by the Western Australian Department of Transport. The handbooks are not the law, but a simplified version of the road rules contained in the relevant Acts and Regulations.

The Drive Safe and Ride Safe handbooks will be reviewed and updated following changes in policy, legislation and/or road rules and traffic regulations.

Any requests to reproduce information or images contained in the Drive Safe or Ride Safe handbooks must be made in writing.
