For a lot of new drivers, the thought of going on the very busy motorway for the first time is daunting and quite frankly, rather scary. So from the 4th of June 2018, the law was changed by the DVSA to allow learner drivers to gain motorway experience with their driving instructor, before actually taking their driving test, so the introduction of motorway driving lessons was a welcomed addition to the driving lesson line-up.

When the the theory test was first introduced back in 1996, learner drivers were encouraged to study as much as possible, gaining ample knowledge and understanding of the rules of the motorway. Unfortunately, this insight into the motorway would not be put into practice until the learner driver passed their practical driving test.


Are Motorway Driving lessons right for me?

Motorways are the most dominant type of road in the UK, so there is a good chance that at some point, you will need to venture onto these roads. So getting some motorway driving lessons will help you to build up the courage you need. Your driving instructor wont put you on the motorway until they feel you are ready to handle it.

Once on the motorway, you will slowly begin to apply everything you have learned in your theory test books, online courses and from you driving lessons to use under the tutelage of your driving instructor.

Final Thought

Motorway driving lessons provides a fantastic opportunity to gain some essential experience in an area which required the learner driver to have a full driving licence but because of the changes made to the law, you now get this opportunity while having your driving instructor by your side.
