This topic is concerned with the relevant areas of traffic law that all drivers are expected to know and obey.

While the driving theory test provides a basic grounding in these laws they frequently change and, as ignorance is not a defence, it is essential that all drivers keep up to date. Operators are also bound by the undertaking given in the O-licence application to ensure that their drivers obey the law and must therefore take reasonable steps to make sure drivers are fully informed about traffic law and any changes. One way that this can be done is by periodically arranging Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) training sessions on the subject.

Many aspects of traffic law are also covered in other specific topics (eg Speed Limits) but this topic is concerned with some areas not covered elsewhere.
