Why should you take it?
Motorway driving requires a unique set of skills to keep you safe. Especially with the addition of Smart Motorways, it can be a bit daunting and confusing for new and older road users who may not be aware of the changes and hazards that 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.
Our one-to-one expert coaching will 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.
The session will provide the perfect confidence boost for drivers who have recently passed their test or who just find that life in the fast lane can be a little intimidating.
What can you expect?
At the start of your session our friendly expert will explain what you’ll be covering during the 75-minute training. If there’s anything specific you’d like help with, simply let our expert know and they’ll be delighted to go through it with you.
You will then head straight for the nearest motorway for practical learning in your own car. As well as providing general advice, our expert will observe your driving style and give you pointers on any aspect of motorway driving you could improve on.
By the end of the session, you’ll feel new confidence on the motorway and your skills and knowledge will be right up to speed.
