|Learner drivers will be able to take driving lessons on motorways before passing their driving test under new plans.
Learner drivers would need to be accompanied by an approved driving instructor (ADI) in a car fitted with dual controls.
Better prepared drivers
The changes will allow learner drivers to:
- get broader driving experience before taking their driving test
- get training on how to join and leave the motorway, overtake and use lanes correctly
- practice driving at higher speeds
- put their theoretical knowledge into practice
Any motorways lessons would be voluntary. It would be up to the ADI to decide when the learner driver is competent enough to have a motorway lesson.
