Stop signs

Many Learner drivers fail their licence test by making errors at Stop signs.

The Road Users Handbook says:
‘STOP’ signs and ‘STOP’ lines (continuous line) are used at intersections to control traffic.

When you come to a STOP sign you must stop completely before reaching the STOP line, and as close as possible to the line.

Where there is no STOP line, stop before reaching, and as close as possible to, the intersection.

A STOP sign or a STOP line means you must give way to all vehicles traveling in, entering or approaching the intersection, whether vehicles are turning left or right, or going straight ahead.

You must give way to any pedestrians crossing the road into which you are turning.

Giving way at a STOP sign means the driver must remain stationary until it is safe for the driver to proceed.

(During driving lessons your Drivetime driving instructor will show the correct procedure to follow at Stop signs and ensure that you are confident of the rules and safe at Stop signs.)

The Corrimal and Warrawong RMS test environments all contain complex Stop sign controlled intersections as part of the licence test to ensure that learner divers are competent and capable of safely negotiating these intersections before passing their licence test.

Call or text Drivetime on 0433 499 944 to book your driving lesson and find out how to safely and confidently negotiate Stop sign controlled intersections.
