When did you last read yours? For over 90 years, The Highway Code has been the official guide to using the roads safely and legally. It has contributed enormously to road safety. However, every day, on average, 4 people are killed and 60 people are seriously injured in road collisions. This edition of The Highway Code introduces new responsibilities towards vulnerable road users. So it’s important for everyone on the road, including drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians, to update their knowledge. The Highway Code contains the latest rules of the road, including changes to parking and much more. A failure to observe any of the provisions of The Highway Code might be used as evidence in legal proceedings.

This official book will help you to appreciate how, as the driver of a goods vehicle, you’ll be in control of one of the biggest types of vehicle on our roads. You’ll also probably spend more time than the average driver behind the wheel, so you have a particular responsibility to drive safely, and with respect towards other road users. Becoming a professional driver takes a special kind of approach and attitude. You’ll need to understand the theory behind driving a goods vehicle, as well as learning all the skills and techniques for handling a lorry and the goods you carry. And, importantly, you’ll need to develop a strong awareness of other, more vulnerable road users and how to behave around them on our increasingly crowded roads. Unfortunately, recent years have seen a sharp increase in the number of collisions between lorries and cyclists – particularly in London. Of course, it isn’t necessarily the driver’s fault, but the cyclist almost always comes off worse. So, it’s your responsibility as a driver to make sure you have the knowledge and skills to try and make sure these collisions don’t happen. Keep up to date with new information, advice and technology and you’ll be a better, safer driver. This new edition contains the information you’ll need to prepare for the extended theory and practical tests that link to the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC). Put this information into practice and you should be able to reach the high standards demanded of a safe and responsible lorry driver.
