Can Learner Drivers go on Motorways?

On the 4th June 2018 the law changed to allow Learner Drivers WITH A QUALIFIED ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) in a DUAL CONTROLLED car on Motorways in the UK.

This opportunity now makes up a key part of the driving lessons delivered by your Driving Instructor as part of your syllabus when you learn to drive. It delivers confidence building, knowledge, understanding and improves your awareness of the traffic around you.

All learner drivers should be discussing these opportunities with their driving instructor when planning their driving lessons. An excellent resource for parents, drivers and instructors providing advice, mini-tests and videos available is our partners website DrivingHub. Better Driver Training have been instrumental in the creation of this site, which has been developed in conjunction with Highways England, DIA, DVSA, MSA, ADINJC and other partners.

Already passed? Training is available on every level from Fully Qualified Drivers, to Refresher sessions, or even Parking practice. Better Driver Training offer UK Orientation sessions and Au Pair Assessments too.

The Up to Date Driving Test - What you need to know

The 'new' Driving Test is well and truly broken in and the old style has been largely forgotten. However we appreciate if you are not a Driving Instructor you may not have heard to the changes, or be confused about what is expected by the DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency). At Better Driver Training we aim to ensure that everybody can learn to drive with the latest information - accurately, quick, and easy. You will find lots of this on our website, or feel free to get in touch and have a chat.
