Queensland is one of the most beautiful places in the world, but we all know you need a car (and a driver’s licence) to get anywhere. If you’re not yet a licenced driver, your first step is to pass the QLD Road Rules Test.
Unfortunately, reading and re-reading the ‘Your Keys to Driving in Queensland’ booklet is a chore that takes tons of time and may still leave you unprepared for taking the real exam. Luckily, there is a better, more exciting way to learn to drive, pass your learners test, and prepare for your practical driving test.
Zutobi is an all-in-one driving app that puts you in the driver’s seat. You’ll get a summarised and improved version of the entire QLD Handbook along with all the practice questions you need to ace your exam - making it a true all-in-one app for learning to drive.

Pass Your QLD Road Rules Test and Practical Driving Test

Why do up to 40% fail their driving test and road rules test in Queensland? Firstly, the handbook is difficult to get through which means many do not read it as thoroughly as they should. Secondly, most resources are simple and focus on just one of the tests (which means you may pass one test but fail the other).

So, how will Zutobi help you pass your QLD road rules test and practical driving test?

  • It’s designed to help Australians pass their learners test and practical driving test.
  • Covers the entire handbook in bite-sized chapters to make studying much more fun

Is the Written Road Rules Test Hard?

That depends on how you study for it, and how much you study. Remember that you’re studying to become a safe driver, instead of only focussing on passing the learners test. The test is very hard unless you study the right questions using the right study material.

Rather than absent-mindedly flipping through the booklet, Zutobi keeps you engaged and motivated to learn safe driving skills on your way to a passing score.

How Many Questions Are on the QLD Learners Test?

There are 30 questions on the written road rules test. In order to pass, you need to answer at least 27 questions (90%) correctly.

When should you move back into the left lane after overtaking another vehicle?

When you can see the vehicle in your rear-view mirror
BImmediately after passing
CWhen you are 20 metres in front of the vehicle

Don’t move back into the left lane too early, as you might cause a collision with the vehicle you’re overtaking or force it to brake dangerously.

Be extra careful when you’re driving a vehicle that is longer-than-normal as you will need more space.

What does it mean that alcohol is a depressant?

AAlcohol sharpens your senses
BAlcohol doesn't affect your reaction time
Alcohol makes you tired, overconfident, and slows your brain function
DAlcohol increases your hazard perception skills

Alcohol makes you tired and slower in general, hence the name depressant. It negatively affects your driving abilities in many different ways.

For example, alcohol reduces your ability to cope with several things simultaneously such as responding to traffic signals or avoiding pedestrians on the road.

If your ____ is low, it could cause a crash?

Brake fluid level
BBattery water level
CAir conditioning coolant

It’s very important that you check the brake fluid level regularly. If it drops below the minimum level, it could lead to a loss of braking efficiency and even complete brake failure.

This doesn’t mean that other fluid levels are unimportant. You should check all fluid levels regularly.

In which of the following scenarios are you allowed to drive on or outside a continuous white edge line?

AWhen overtaking at high speeds
BWhen overtaking vehicles making a U-turn from the centre of the road
CWhen overtaking vehicles turning right
B + C

You are allowed to drive on, across or outside edge lines for several reasons, including when overtaking vehicles: 

  • making a U-turn from the centre of the road
  • waiting to turn right

In which direction must you drive in a roundabout?


Always keep to the left of the central island when travelling in a roundabout.

You intend to turn right at an intersection where this sign is displayed. Are you allowed to turn?

AYes, the sign is only a recommendation
BNo, the sign only applies to buses and taxis
No, you must keep going straight
DIt depends on the time of the day. The sign means you must keep going straight, but it only applies during busy traffic

Black letters or symbols with a white background are mandatory signs, and must be obeyed.

On a single lane road, should you overtake a vehicle in front of you on its left-hand side?

No, as long as it’s not making a right-hand turn

In general you should avoid overtaking another vehicle on its left-hand side. However, if safe, you may overtake on the left side of a vehicle:

  • waiting to turn right
  • making a U-turn from the centre of the road
  • That is stationary.

When parallel parking, look for pedestrians, other vehicles and potential dangers by:

AOnly looking ahead before reversing
BBy asking a passenger to check the mirrors
Checking mirrors and blind spots before reversing

Checking the mirrors isn't enough to see all potential dangers - you should always check the blind spot as well.

How large is the minimum gap you should leave between to the vehicle in front?

A1 second
2 seconds
C3 seconds
D5 seconds

Don’t drive too close to the vehicle in front of you. Leave enough space to be able to react, slow down and avoid trouble.

You’re driving when you see this light. What does it mean?

AYour rear lights aren't working properly
BYour wipers aren't working properly
Your brakes aren't working properly
DThere is something wrong with the air conditioning

If the brake warning light comes on, you should have the vehicle checked immediately.

Most of the time, the brake warning light indicates that your vehicle has a low brake fluid level, but the brakes could be leaking which may result in you being unable to brake at all.

Are you allowed to overtake a vehicle that has stopped at a pedestrian crossing?

CYes, if you believe that you can overtake without endangering any pedestrians
DYes, if the road ahead is clear of oncoming cars

You aren't allowed to overtake any vehicle that has stopped or is stopping at any crossing. A stopped vehicle is likely to have stopped to let pedestrians cross, so don't pass even if you can't see the pedestrians.

What does this sign mean?

AU-turn permitted
U-turn prohibited
CSharp curve ahead
DHairpin bend ahead

You’re not allowed to make a U-turn where this sign is displayed.

Do you have to give way to the bus in this situation?

ANo, because the bus is changing lane

Buses with a Give Way sign that are signalling their attention to pull out from the kerb (or another stopping place) has priority over other vehicles in built-up areas with a speed limit of no more than 70 km/h.

What is the first thing you should do when arriving at a crash scene?

Scan the scene and ensure that the area is safe
BCall 000 immediately and wait for emergency services to arrive
CInspect any involved vehicles
DTry to get as far away from the crash scene as possible

It's important that you scan the area first so you can prioritise your actions - you need to assess whether it is safe to approach the scene or not, see if there are any injured persons, and call 000.

What does this sign mean?

AYou’re not allowed to park in this area
You must angle park
CYou must parallel park next to the kerb
DYou may parallel or angle park

This sign indicates you must angle park.

When angle parking, park at a 45 degree angle front to kerb unless otherwise signed. A 45 degree angle is indicated in this case.

Are you allowed to have more people in the car than it can fit?

CYes, but only if the additional passengers are seated on the floor

Too many people in a vehicle is dangerous and illegal (e.g. people sitting on the floor or laps). All passengers should be seated and wearing seatbelts (or other restraints).

What should you do to minimise fatigue during long trips?

ADrive for long distances without taking any breaks
BDrive at night
CAdjust your seat to a comfortable position and turn up the temperature
None of the above

Take regular breaks (at least every 2 hours) throughout the trip, and eat light snacks to help keep your blood sugar level steady. If you feel tired, pull over and take a nap until you feel awake and alert again.

Do you have to indicate with your left-hand signal when turning left at an intersection?

COnly if there are other road users nearby

You must always signal when making a turn, even when you're alone on the road.

Are you allowed to stop in a bus lane to buy refreshments?

CYes, but only for 10 minutes

You must not stop or park in a bus, transit or truck lane.

Which statement is true regarding drink driving?

The probability of a serious accident increases if you drink and drive
BThe probability of a serious accident is unaffected if you drink and drive
CThe probability of a serious accident decreases if you drink and drive

Drink driving is one of the main causes of road fatalities. Alcohol affects your driving abilities (e.g. your reactions, your judgement) and makes you overconfident.

You react slower and therefore collide at a higher speed than you would if you were sober.
