Traffic rules

The traffic regulations describe how a road user must behave on public roads, so that traffic flows safely and smoothly. It is expected that all road users know and apply the traffic regulations. Sometimes traffic regulations will appear a bit unclear. However, all rules in the regulations have been well thought through, so it is also important to know the underlying line of thought.


Lights

The lights on a vehicle have different functions and are an important part of road safety. The lights of your vehicle improve visibility at night. They also ensure that other road users can better see the presence, position, size and direction of your vehicle.

  • Dipped beam
  • High beam
  • Fog lights
  • Side lights
  • Turn signals
  • Warning lights
  • Dashboard lights


Dipped beam

The low beam lights illuminate the road without dazzling other road users, they illuminate the road to about 30 meters. The red tail lights also illuminate when the dipped beam is switched on. The low beam is the standard lighting that you have to use when it gets dark.


High beam

The high beam is used to illuminate the road so that you can see further, it provides a clear view to about 100 meters. Because the high beam emits a very bright light, it can blind other road users. You may not use the driving beam if you drive behind another road user or when approaching an oncoming vehicle.


Fog lights

The fog light may be used in bad weather conditions such as heavy rain, fog, or snow. The fog light can dazzle other road users, so use it only in bad weather. Not all cars are equipped with fog lights, so they are not required to use.


Side lights

The sidelights are used to be better seen by other road users.


Turn signals

The direction indicators are flashing lights on the left and right front and rear of the vehicle. Sometimes also on the sides or on the side mirrors of a vehicle. They are used to indicate the direction to other road users when turning or changing lanes.


Warning lights

With most vehicles you can blink the four direction indicators simultaneously. These are the warning lights, they may only be used to warn other road users of a hazard.

The English is not good on this site and can be misleading. It is important to proof read so that any errors are removed to avoid ambiguity

So many mistakes in the theory and practice test. Most of the important theoretical information is missing. Tests are complete mess: some questions are untranslated, have spelling mistakes and even incorrect 'correct' answers. What a waste of money..

Hi, Paid 20 euros for 10 days and went through almost every question you have in your bank but there were not more than 4 questions that came in the test. You really need to update your questions.
