Motorway qualms

If you feel anxious about driving on a motorway, dual carriageway or other high-speed scenario, there is help at hand. It’s quite normal to feel apprehensive about heading on to a motorway with a 70mph speed limit, especially as there’s no requirement to do so during your lessons or test at present. But increasingly, young and new drivers are taking advantage of the June 2018 law change which allows you to take motorway lessons before passing your test. Providing you’re accompanied by an approved instructor it’s now possible to get a taste for motorways as a learner. You won’t be assessed on your motorway driving skills during your test, but many learners find it helps with overall ability and confidence. Courses like Pass Plus, which we offer, remain a popular option once you’ve passed your test and want accompanied experience on major roads before setting off alone.
