FAQ Safe Driving in Australia
Freeman car rental is committed to ensuring you have a safe and enjoyable driving holiday in Australia. Please take the time to read through the road rules and information provided below to ensure you’re ready for the road ahead.
Rest Before Driving
If you are arriving on a long-haul flight, consider staying overnight in that destination. That will ensure you are fresh and ready for the drive ahead.
Take Regular Breaks
It’s easy to underestimate driving times in Australia. It’s a very big country and you should check the expected drive time before hitting the road. Take plenty of breaks along the way and give yourself additional travel time to rest, eat, and stretch your legs. Plan to drive for only 1 - 2 hours at a time to break up your journey.
Always drive on the left side of the road. If you drive on the right side of the road in your own country, please remember to keep left when pulling out onto the road – sometimes it’s easy to forget where you are!
Giving Way at Intersections
In general, if you’re turning, give way to all vehicles that are not turning. Always use your indicator when turning.
Hand-held Mobile Phones
Drivers must not use a hand-held mobile phone when driving, unless the device is completely hands-free or mounted securely to the vehicle – and touched infrequently and briefly. Writing, reading or sending text messages on a mobile phone while driving is also illegal.
Many intersections are controlled by a central roundabout. Roundabouts manage traffic flows on either single lane or multiple lane roads. The roundabout sign means Slow Down, prepare to Give Way and if necessary stop to avoid a collision. As you're approaching a roundabout, you must get into the correct lane, indicate if turning, and give way to traffic already on the roundabout. Enter the roundabout when there is a safe gap in the traffic.
