Safety Code for New Drivers

Safety Code for New Drivers

When you pass your test the learning does not stop. It takes a lot of time and experience to learn how to anticipate dangers, to cope with hazards and to drive in different conditions.


  1. Follow the rules of ‘The Highway Code for Northern Ireland’ every time you use the road and read The Safety Code for New Drivers.
  2. Slow down! Remember – you can never control the consequences if you speed
  3. Never Ever Drink and Drive
  4. Always pay attention and stay alert – One lapse can last a lifetime
  5. Always wear your seatbelt – No seatbelt No excuse

REMEMBER – under the New Drivers Order you will have your licence revoked if you get six penalty points on your licence within two years of passing your first driving tests. You will need to pass both the theory and practical tests again to get back your full licence.
