Learner Drivers on the Motorway

On 4th June 2018 the law was changed to allow learner drivers in the UK to have driving lessons on motorways.

The change will enable new drivers to receive training and experience in motorway driving, which is geared to improving safety.

There is some restriction, in that the learner driver has to have an approved driving instructor accompanying them in the vehicle; the car must have dual controls; and the sessions will be at the discretion of the instructor, who should only allow the learner driver to go onto the motorway if they are satisfied that they are competent to do so.

Motorway tuition guidelines can be downloaded from the government’s website:
