Nova Scotia Driver's Handbook

Currently in design.
Task – Re-organize and re-write the Nova Scotia Driver’s Handbook incorporating new rules and regulations affecting both drivers and cyclists.
Target audience – everyone who wants a Nova Scotia driver’s licence, particularly

  • Nova Scotia teenagers looking to get a driver’s licence for the first time
  • adult Nova Scotians looking to get a driver’s licence for the first time OR after a period during which they were without such a licence due to revocation or absence from the province for an extended period
  • new immigrants to Nova Scotia, particularly those from countries with which the province does NOT have a reciprocal licensing agreement. These are often countries in which the most common language is neither English nor French.

Scope – All information necessary to becoming a safe driver on Nova Scotia roads plus information on Nova Scotia’s graduated licensing system and penalties for unsafe driving.
Resources – I was given an annotated version of the current Nova Scotia Driver’s Handbook in which desired changes were highlighted and new information added. I was also encouraged to research other driver’s handbooks from across Canada for information that was lacking in the Nova Scotia guide and to find out if some information in the current guide could be deleted. Throughout the writing process I was in close contact with subject matter experts to ensure information was accurate and up to date.
