Once you have passed your driving or riding test, it’s all too easy to fall into ‘bad habits’ and to forget the rules of the road. However, the rules  are now available to carry around with you on your mobile device so no matter where you are, you have a handy guide to refer to.

The Code covers rules for everyone, pedestrians, riders, drivers & cyclists. If we all read the code and stick to the rules, the roads will be a much safer place.

All aspects of road safety are covered in Highway Code including general driving & riding advice and looking out for vulnerable road users. It covers driving in bad weather conditions, waiting and parking, all the way through to driving on motorways. There is advice on what to do in the event of a breakdown and how to behave at roadworks.

    I’ve been trying to obtain the latest version of the Highway Code. W.H.Smiths. is what every one else says is the main stockiest. But no, all they can give me is an updated 2016, updated to 2020. Which does not cover all of the latest rules. I’ve been a main reader since 1957, and keep check of all the new updates. having been a lorry driver and trainer for 46 years. Yes I retired 15 years ago, but still drive, and help people who ask me for help with the H.W.Code if they ask
    So please tell me where I can get, I suppose it will now be 2 versions, cars and lorries. So if I’m asked I won’t give the wrong answer.
    Thank you, William (Bill) Shepherd.

      Hi Bill, we reproduce the official Highway Code under licence from the DVSA. There is only one version of the code, but the ones we produce for cars & lorries include 200 interactive theory test practise questions. These include the most up to date version of the code and are Kindle eBooks. These are available from Amazon for cars and lorries. If it’s a paperback printed version you’re after then the best place will be The Stationery Office (TSO)

    Like Mr Shepherd, I cannot find where to buy a paper copy of the most recent Highway Code.
    It just seems to be available as an ebook.
    Please publicise when the paper copy is available as I 7nderstand the recent changes have come into force already.

      Hi Diane, the ‘official’ Highway Code is published by the Driving Standards Agency. UK Driving skills is licenced to reproduce the code and we have the advantage of being able to immediately update the ebook versions that we publish when changes are made see here. The official paperback version will have to wait until the DVSA are ready to publish this. You will have to contact them directly as we do not know when this will be.
