The driving test reaches its 80th anniversary in 2015, and this commemorative edition of the Highway Code is a celebration of that milestone in British road safety. Updated for 2015, The Official Highway Code is essential reading for all road users in England, Scotland and Wales, providing all the latest rules of the road and traffic signs. All road users have a responsibility to keep their knowledge up-to-date, so make sure you do just that with the latest edition of this handy reference guide. Every day, on average, five people are killed and 60 people are seriously injured on our roads. If we're to bring those figures down, it's vital that all road users - drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians - are familiar with all the rules in The Official Highway Code. This 2015 edition includes the new drug-driving laws, HGV speed limit changes on single and dual carriageways in England and Wales, updated drink-driving limits in Scotland and general rule changes. The Highway Code is available in just about any format you can think of and is constantly updated to reflect changes in technology, understanding and the law. Please continue to read it - not just as a learner driver, but as a responsible lifelong road user - so we can keep Britain's roads among the safest in the world.

On average, nine people are killed and around 80 are seriously injured in road collisions every day in Britain, so road safety could be greatly improved by following the advice in The Highway Code.

NOT THE HIGHWAY CODE is the unofficial 'rules of the road' that everyone knows but, for some reason, are not covered by the official HIGHWAY CODE... Where is the rule that states: if traffic lights turn amber as you approach them, put your foot down and drive as fast as you can? Where is the rule that says diversions never ever lead you back to where you want to be? Stylishly presented and structured to resemble the classic original, this witty new humour title explores the many hilarious truisms of the road today. Such as the true meaning of traffic signs, dealing with motorway middle-lane hoggers, the correct service station etiquette as well as offering advice on how to park while others watch you, driving abroad and the correct hand signal to give a cyclist. NOT THE HIGHWAY CODE is the perfect gift for anyone who has sat in the driver's seat (front or back) and although in many respects similar to the original, it will not help anyone pass their driving test.
