 Motorway Driving Lessons! 

Experienced learner drivers are now allowed to drive on British Motorways. This new opportunity came into Law on the 4th June 2018.


However a learner driver must be accompanied by a "fully qualified driving instructor" in a  car fitted with dual controls.


Driving instructors will teach the rules for driving on both standard and "Smart Motorways".

If you are already a qualified driver, but have little experience of motorway driving or get nervous at the prospect of having to drive on a Motorway. Why not consider a Motorway driving lesson!
