Nova Scotia has a graduated driver licensing system that requires new drivers to obtain a learner’s permit for a minimum of 9 months before getting a full license. The province also has strict laws against handheld device use while driving, with fines of up to $579 for a first offense. Speeding fines start at $233 for going just 1-15 km/h over the speed limit, making it important always to obey posted speed limits. Lastly, Nova Scotia is known for its winding, often narrow roads, and drivers should always exercise caution, especially in rural areas where wildlife crossings are common. Understanding and following these rules can help keep drivers, pedestrians, and the environment safe on Nova Scotia’s roads.
