Bare foot driving, Is it legal

Written by Ben Ward


Did you know that it is legal to drive bare foot? This means you do not need to wear shoes when undertaking a driving test!

This rule only applies when driving a car (a vehicle that weighs a maximum of 4.5t gross vehicle mass (GVM), built or fitted to carry no more than 12 adults, including the driver).

 As a safety measure, we recommend that footwear should be worn when operating all other vehicles including motorcycles and mopeds.
