Learner drivers on motorways from 4 June 2018


Learner drivers on motorways from 4 June 2018
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.

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.

Well done to Lewis Atkinson (16)

Well done to Lewis Atkinson (16) Congratulations on an excellent first under 17 off road driving lesson on 17th February 2018

“Hi Mark,

just like to say thank you so much for making today possible. Lewis thoroughly enjoyed his lesson with Mick He said ‘reversing is scary’! However he did an absolutely fantastic reverse into a parking space at the end of his lesson. :-)

Thanks once again, I’m sure we’ll see you again soon.

regards Lynn”
