Allowing learner drivers to have lessons on motorways will help to make sure more drivers know how to use motorways safely as far too many motorists do not. At the moment, you can only have driving lessons on motorways after you’ve passed your driving test pass plus or just lessons. The change will apply to England, Scotland and Wales. Learner drivers will need to be accompanied by an approved driving instructor and 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 to have a motorway lesson. Trainee driving instructors won’t be allowed to take learner drivers on the motorway. Motorway driving will not be included in the driving test changes coming into force on 4 December 2017. The change will only apply to learner drivers of cars – learner motorcyclists won’t be allowed to have motorway lessons.
