How to react when you see a learner on the Motorway

Added: 25 July 2018

A new change in the law means that learner drivers can now drive up and down our busy motorways!

How to drive safely around learners

We thought this would be a great opportunity to give you some tips when driving around these learners on the motorway.

Empathy goes a long way!

We all had to learn to drive at one point or another, so we should be understanding of these new drivers as we know how nerve-racking it can be to drive on the motorway sometimes. This means taking care when you are near one of these learners and trying not to give them a tough time, this could be anything from overtaking them to flashing/beeping them. Be polite out there!

Follow the rules

When you are driving on the Motorway, it’s very easy to get carried away and travel above the limit sometimes and we are all guilty of it. However, when travelling next to learners it is essential that you stick to the limit and abide by the Highway Code. Failing to do this could create some bad habits for you and the new driver which is no use to anybody. Stay safe on the roads!

We hope these little tips will help you when you’re dealing with learner drivers. IF you’re interested in any of our services then feel free to contact us today.
