NSW has 3 blood alcohol limits:-

  • Zero applies to all learner drivers, all Provisional 1 drivers & all Provisional 2 drivers.
  • 0.02 applies to drivers of vehicles of ‘gross vehicle mass’ greater than 13.9 tonnes, drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods & drivers of public vehicles such as taxi or bus drivers.
  • 0.05 applies to all other licences not subject to a 0.02 or zero limit.
