Vehicles

Rules of the road

In order to operate a motor vehicle or ride a motorcycle in the State of South Australia, you must hold a valid driver's licence and comply with the many different laws governing road users. 

Visit the Driving in South Australia page of the Transport, Energy and Infrastructure web site for a list of links covering Road Rules, how and when to apply, re-apply or convert your driver's licence to a South Australia Driver's licence if you hold one from another state or country and more.

If you see someone driving dangerously, record the car registration and any other identifying information and report to the Police.

If you see someone doing burnouts - intentionally marking the roads with tread marks - record the car registration and any other identifying information and report to the City of Salisbury Customer Centre on 08 8406 8222 or by filling in and submitting the online form at the bottom of this page.

Registration and insurance

All motor vehicles that are driven on South Australian roads must be road-worthy and registered. This involves the payment of a fee, which includes a component to cover Compulsory Third Party (Bodily) Insurance. This insurance does not cover damage to property such as your or another person's vehicles. For this you must take out separate insurance through a commercial provider.

Visit the Vehicle Registration information page of the SA Government information web site for more information.
