The Highway Code was first published in 1931 at a time when there were only 2.3 million vehicles on the road.
It was printed on salmon pink paper, only 21 pages long and did not even mention the use of mirrors, according to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.
Ninety years later, the number of registered vehicles is close to 40 million and the rulebook has updated accordingly – not in the least being significantly longer.
But how well have you stayed on top of the code, described by officials as “essential reading for everyone”?
