As a learner driver you are now allowed drive on the motorways before you have passed your driving test, but only with a fully qualified driving instructor and the car must have dual controls. You will not drive on the motorway on your driving test as the driving examiners are not qualified to do this. This has been approved by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency), in order to give learner drivers some experience of motorways. Ask your driving instructor about motorway lessons.
After you have passed your driving test I do include motorway lessons within the Pass Plus course, but if you would prefer to just have motorway lessons, this is not a problem. Maybe the thoughts of driving on the motorway is quite daunting so having motorway tuition with a fully qualified instructor will help you to build on your existing skills, learn new skills and improve your confidence and make you a safer driver on our motorways.
DO YOU AVOID MOTORWAYS?
You may have been driving for many years, but avoid motorways at all costs. You are not alone – many drivers do. Possibly the thought that if you do drive on the motorway, you won’t be able to get off, you are fearful of driving with the big trucks and lorries, the number of lanes confuse you and the speed some of the other drivers are going just put you off even attempting to consider driving on the motorways. Whatever the reason is, I can help, so you will feel more confident and happy to use the motorway as part of your everyday driving.
