Our eGuide to law combines our Traffic and Criminal guides into a single package which is easy to use and navigate and contains a wide range of topics applicable to England, Wales and Scotland* .

* Most traffic related legislation applies England, Wales and Scotland, there is also some Scotland specific legislation included.

Traffic Guide
A comprehensive but easily understood and practical guide to the law of the road complete with illustrations, easy to use tables, full index and table of contents.
The guide is tried and tested and is in everyday use throughout the UK by police officers, transport companies, DVSA inspectors, the armed forces, solicitors, barristers, magistrates, driving instructors and others with an interest in road traffic law.


Criminal Guide
Another practical guide to the criminal law containing a wide range of topics set out in a clear but information rich format with tables and a full index. Offences, penalties and powers are included making this one of the most complete guides available.
The guide is used throughout the England and Wales by front line police officers, police support officers and volunteers.

The eGuide uses 'service worker' - technology which allows it to be used both with and without an internet connection allowing its use in a wide range of environments. For a more detailed technical description follow this link.

The guide has been designed to make it simple to navigate and easy to read and by doing so we have taken into account the needs of users with a wide range of disabilities. As such we seek not only to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) AAA standard as well as implementing framework strategies based on British Standard BS 8878: 2010 but also with the requirements of The Equality Act 2010, in particular section 20(6).

eGuide on a smartphone

Benefitting from high speed, low data bandwidth requirements it can be used on a variety of platforms and devices including :-

on the majority of operating systems including :-

for both on-line and off-line** use

** Off-line use requires a browser which supports 'service worker' - see below.

A service worker is a script that a browser runs in the background, separate from a web page, opening the door to features that don't need a web page or user interaction.
The worker will automatically check if the browser supports the technology - see below - and, if it does, will load the eGuide into a service worker cache on your device (the cache is only around 12mB).
Once activated the service worker will fetch all the pages of the eGuide from the cache even when the device is still online thus reducing or eliminating network data use and providing a fast response either with or without an internet connection.
The worker ensures the guide is updated and will check and auto update, if required, in the background without any user intervention whenever there is an internet connection.
Service workers support is available in the latest version of the following browsers - Google Chrome, Chrome for Android, Mozilla Firefox, Samsung Internet, Opera, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari (OSX and iOS from version 11.3), UC Browser for Android, Android WebView. It is expected other mobile browsers will soon also be supporting the technology - see Is service worker ready?
If your browser does not yet support service workers the guide will still function online.
