  3. Learner drivers can take motorway driving lessons with an approved driving instructor from 4 June 2018.

    Motorway Driving Lessons

    From Monday 4 June 2018, learner drivers will be able to take driving lessons on motorways in England, Scotland and Wales.

    This will help to make sure more drivers know how to use motorways safely.

    At the moment, you can only have motorway lessons after you’ve passed your driving test. Some newly-qualified drivers take lessons through the voluntary Pass Plus scheme.

    How the change will work

    Learner drivers will need to be:

    • accompanied by an approved driving instructor
    • driving a car fitted with dual controls

    Any motorways lessons will be voluntary. It will be up to the driving instructor to decide when the learner driver is competent enough for them.

    Until the law changes, it’s still illegal for a learner driver to drive on a motorway.

    The change only applies to learner drivers of cars. Learner motorcyclists won’t be allowed on motorways.

    Trainee driving instructors won’t be allowed to take learner drivers on the motorway.

    Motorway driving isn’t being introduced to the driving test as part of this change.

    Making sure road users are ready for the change

    The change is being well-publicised so that:

    • driving instructors and learner drivers are prepared
    • other road users know what to expect

    The Highway Code rules on motorways will be updated.

    Driving near learner drivers on the motorway

    As with any vehicle on the motorway, keep a safe distance from a learner driver in front of you. Increase the gap on wet or icy roads, or in fog.

    You should always be patient with learner drivers. They may not be so skilful at anticipating and responding to events.

    Driving instructor vehicles and training

    Driving instructors can decide if they want to use a driving school rooftop box during motorway lessons, based on its instructions.

    The car will need to display L plates on the front and rear if the rooftop box is removed.

     

    Anyone wanting to have a motorway lesson please speak to your driving instructor, once they think you are ready they will be happy to take you.
