Double Demerits over the Christmas Period

Written by Rebecca Saunders

Christmas is around the corner and it's best to prepare yourself for the traffic congestion that follows.
Double Demerits begin on Friday 20/12/2019 and run through to New Years Day on 01/01/2020.
Demerits apply for speeding, seatbelt, helmet, motorbike and mobile phone related offences.

The Demerit Point system is beneficial to improve driving behaviour, obey the road rules and comply with NSW traffic laws. Drivers caught with a mobile phone during a double demerit point period can expect a fine and loss of 10 demerit points. School Zones will still apply up to 20/12/2019 and will fall within the double demerit period. Certain driving and parking offences attract an additional demerit point if committed in a school zone. The Demerit's for these offences will be doubled on 20/12/2019.

Written by Matty Weibel

Safer Drivers Course Website integration with Onroad Website


Onroad Driving School is a provider of the NSW Safer Drivers Course and its website ( has recently been integrated with the main Onroad website ( and therefore no longer exists. However, there are several benefits as a result of this integration:

  • The website integration allows us to better manage the allocation of course participants as well as scheduling course facilitators and course venues. 
  • Everything is one place: Whether you have booked a standard driving lesson, a test car package or a Safer Drivers Course, every booking is now in one place and shows up under the your history. Simply log into your account to view every booking you have made on the Onroad website 
  • Module 2 allocation: Following Module 1, which is the theory part the course, the new website integration allows the office to easily book in and allocate participants for Module 2, which is the 2 hour practical aspect of the Safer Drivers Course. If you book early enough you will most likely be able to complete Module 2 straight after Module 1 on the same day
  • Hassle free booking process to save your spot for the Safer Drivers Course at one of our locations in Sydney 

Overall, the website integration has been proven to be a good thing as clients can now easily process and manage their bookings for either driving lessons or the Safer Drivers Course in one place.

A Rule is Changing for Everyone's Safety

Written by Michelle Lowden


From 26 September 2019 motorists will no longer need to slow down to 40km/h on roads with speed limits of 90km/h or MORE when passing stationary emergency vehicles with flashing lights.

The trial of a rule that required motorists to slow down to 40km/h when passing stationary emergency vehicles with flashing blue or red lights has been completed and changes will be made to the road rule as a result of a review of the 12 month trial, which included community feedback.

This rule is being changed to:

  • improve the safety of emergency services personnel, tow truck operators and breakdown assistance providers working on the road, as well as the people they are helping.
  • make it safer on higher speed roads where the time and distance required to reduce speed to 40km/h is the greatest.

Written by Michelle Lowden

bstreetsmart NSW, an initiative of the Trauma Service at Westmead Hospital, is an event held at the Qudos Bank Arena, which inspires thousands of high school students annually. This will be the 15th year that bstreetsmart has been able to impact young and future drivers of NSW. 

Westmead's Trauma Service is strongly committed to road safety education, as they are continuously reminded that people aged 15-30 are disproportionately represented in road trauma. 

bstreetsmart exists to reduce the fatality and injury rates of young people, through promoting safe driving behaviour to drivers, riders and passengers.

Digital Log Book - Benefits for Learner Drivers

Digital Log Books?

 Service NSW Roads and Maritime Service now allow the learner drivers, less than 25 years of age, to use digital log books to record their driving experience and submit their log book straight from the app, instead of paper log book.

 Are you confused about whether to use paper log book or digital log book?

 Here are the pros and cons for your consideration.

 Problems with the paper log book

There are many issues with the paper Log Books, some of which have prevented driving tests from going ahead.

  • It’s easy to make mistakes when entering the details.
  • Entries need to be entered in a certain format otherwise you risk rejection on the day of your driving test.
  • Cumbersome calculations are involved.
  • A quick check on learner progress is not possible.
  • It’s not easy to share with supervisors in building skills of the learner.
  • The book can get lost or damaged resulting in loss of experience records.
  • It’s inconvenient to carry (for instance, remembering to take it to school in readiness for an after school drive).
  • A forgotten or misplaced Log Book may result in unrecorded driving experiences.
