Todays New Law: Learner drivers now allowed on the motorway

Posted in: Progress News
For those who have experienced learning to drive with Progress will already know we are the leading independent driving instructor in North Wales, and have always given all our students the best experience and confidence building support in passing their tests first time.

From today, in Wales, England and Scotland; learner drivers are allowed to have driving lessons on motorways. Previously, drivers could only do this for the first time after they had passed their practical test - and quite often would be alone, and nervous too (we've all been there!). That's the reason the government has move forward with changing this law, in order to help learners gain experience with certified driving instructors to drive safely on motorways.

It's been found by an AA poll that as many as 8% of newly passed students avoid motorways for at least six months after getting their driving license. Many said they felt scared when driving on the motorway for the first time - something Progress School of Motoring will always help all our students with by providing them with access to the A55 express way (which has similar national speed limits) as motorways.

If you have any questions regarding this change in law, get in touch with us and we'll happily talk you through any queries you may have.
