Keeping left

Road Rules: Keeping left on NSW roads.

The NSW Centre for Road Safety is a very good resource for Learner drivers.

This animated video explains Keeping left on NSW roads. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFPMScli2-0)

On multi-lane roads with a speed limit of more than 80km/h, motorists must not drive in the right-hand lane unless they are:

  • overtaking
  • turning right or making a U-turn
  • avoiding an obstacle
  • driving in congested traffic
  • driving in a special purpose lane or if there is a Left Lane Must Turn Left sign or a left traffic arrow and the driver is not turning left

If a Keep Left Unless Overtaking sign is displayed, the requirement applies regardless of the speed limit.
