Learner Drivers are to be Allowed on Motorways for the First Time!

Learner drivers are to be allowed on motorways for the first time amid fears young motorists are putting themselves and others at risk using dangerous back roads.

Ministers have announced that for the first time, learner drivers will be able to have lessons on motorways with an approved driving instructor in a dual controlled car.

Motoring experts said the change is necessary because inexperienced new drivers are often scared to go on motorways and are instead choosing dangerous back roads and lanes where they are more likely to have an accident.
