Unless a sign is telling you otherwise, assume that Sydney’s speed limit is 50km per hour. Speeding usually comes with heavy fines and it may impact your ability to hire a car in the future. Children under the age of seven must be seated in the back seats of the vehicle either in a booster seat or child restraint seat. Driving with a blood alcohol level higher than 0.05 is illegal in NSW, so avoid drinking before driving altogether. Sydney has toll roads of various charges. No need to bring your own e-tag – the RMS will bill you directly for the tolls with a service fee. Finally, while driving on multi-lane roads stay in the left lane if you’re driving slowly.
