Motorway Driving Awareness
Motorway driving is something that you will not be taught as a learner driver as the current law doesn’t allow learner drivers on motorways. Begin Driving offers motorway courses for all drivers from the new driver to drivers that want to build/improve their motorway skills.
If you are not correctly prepared your first experience of motorway driving can be a scary one, most driving organisations highly recommend that you take professional lessons to gain experience and confidence on motorways so that you are better equipped to deal safely with higher volumes of traffic traveling at up to 70mph.
In the past ten years there has been a 37% increase in the number of vehicles using our motorway network, but statistically they remain the safest type of road within the UK, with only 3% of serious accidents and 4% of casualties taking place on them. However, 8,000 people are still killed or seriously injured on UK motorways each year (with around 250 of these happening on the hard shoulder).
A motorway course will improve your understanding, confidence, and ability to stay safe on motorways. You will learn how to:
- join and exit motorways,
- keep safe distances in all weathers,
- how to overtake safely,
- lane discipline,
- how to understand motorway signs,
- forward planning and anticipating the actions of other drivers,
- use of motorway services,
- breakdown procedure,
- and many more skills essential to the motorway driver.
- Smart motorways are also covered as part of the course.
The three hour motorway course costs £100.00 – to book call us on 01323 647078.
