The Road to Solo Driving is the Vicroads learner drivers book outlining rules and obligations to assist new drivers before booking the Learners Permit test. It is also a helpful resource for overseas and international licence holders to gain an understanding of the laws and expectations of driving on roads in Victoria.
If you are taking driving lessons your instructor will recommend looking through the handbook from time to time to help improve your road knowledge. As you continue driving you will find much of the information you may have initially scanned over becomes increasingly relevant to common situations you encounter on the road. It is also helpful for supervising drivers to be familiar with its contents when they are preparing to teach a new learner driver.
