Roadcraft is the police handbook for driver training. It’s used by all the emergency services and forms a key reference for driving instructors. Updates for this new edition include a new overtaking chapter with separate sections on passing stationary vehicles, single stage overtakes, and multi -stage overtakes and new explanations of advanced concepts, such as limit points on left -hand bends. Guided by a working group of experienced instructors, Roadcraft is essential learning for police officers preparing for the demands of operational driving.

A copy of Roadcraft is supplied courtesy of sponsors over at VTNZ.
