Give way means to slow down and, if necessary, stop in order to prevent a crash from happening.
You must always give way at a give way sign and check it's safe to continue. Give way signs are placed at intersections and other places where other vehicles have priority.
Remember, there are lots of situations on the road where you must give way even if there is no sign.

You need to give way if:

  • the rules say that you must
  • there's a give way or stop sign
  • there are stop or give way lines on the road
  • you're turning right across the path of an oncoming vehicle at an intersection
  • you're turning left or right at a T-intersection
  • you're moving onto a road from a driveway or land next to a road
  • you're moving off from being stopped on the side of the road
  • you're doing a U-turn
  • you're turning left at an intersection with a 'left turn on red after stopping' sign.

Giving way at intersections with 2 stop signs or give way signs

You need to give way if you face a give way sign or a stop sign or if there are stop or give way lines on the road, even if the other driver, who is not facing a stop or give way sign, is turning right across your path.

Giving way at intersections with 1 stop or give way sign

A stop sign is not more powerful than a give way sign when giving way. When 2 drivers arrive at stop or give ways signs at the same time, the stop sign becomes the equivalent of a give way sign. Both vehicles must give way to other vehicles before they must give way to each other.

Giving way at uncontrolled crossroads

You must give way to vehicles on your right at an uncontrolled crossroad—this is a crossroad without any traffic lights, lines or signs.

Giving way at a T-intersection

If you're driving on a road that ends at a T-intersection, you must give way to all vehicles—except those doing a U-turn—travelling on the road continuing through the intersection.

Giving way when turning right

When turning right at an uncontrolled crossroad (without a slip lane), you must give way to vehicles coming from the opposite direction that are:
  • driving straight ahead through the intersection
  • turning left at the intersection.

Giving way when using slip lanes

A slip lane is an area of road for vehicles turning left that is separated from other parts of the road by a painted island or traffic island.
If you're using a slip lane, you must give way to all traffic already on the road you're entering (except vehicles doing a U-turn).

Giving way to pedestrians and cyclists

You must give way to pedestrians crossing a road you're turning into or entering. This includes pedestrians or cyclists that are crossing on the green 'walk' signal at an intersection controlled with traffic lights, and you are turning into the road they are crossing.
