Course overview

Worried about driving on the motorway for the first time?
Not sure of motorway driving rules, especially on new smart motorways? 
Looking to overcome your motorway driving anxiety? 

Our Motorway Driving Course is a great choice! 

Motorway driving requires a unique set of skills to keep you safe. Smart motorways can be a bit daunting and confusing for new and older road users, who may not be aware of the motorway driving rules. Especially the ones that changes, hazards and the new layout can cause.

Yet motorways have been off-limits for learner drivers until very recently and are still not covered in the driving test, leaving many of us without any proper training in this area. In a recent survey by Nissan, 23% of drivers said they experience anxiety driving on motorways. Some people have a genuine fear of driving on motorways.

Our one-to-one expert coaching on a motorway driving session will give you essential motorway driving tips. All to help you understand and master the specific challenges of motorway driving. These include joining and leaving the carriageway, correct use of lanes, judging distances, safe overtaking and what to do in the event of a breakdown. You should leave feeling confident rather than scared to drive on motorways.

If you are someone who has developed a real fear of motorway driving, then a motorway driving session could be a great idea. This motorway driving lesson is perfect for people who have recently passed their test and want to be better prepared for first time driving on motorway or those who just find that life in the fast lane can be a little intimidating.
