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.
