Plans to let learner drivers onto motorways

Voluntary motorway lessons with a qualified instructor.
Under the new plans, learner drivers would need to be:
    accompanied by an approved driving instructor
    driving a car fitted with dual controls
Any motorways lessons would be voluntary. It would be up to the driving instructor to decide when the learner driver is competent enough to have a motorway lesson.
Any change to the law would be well-publicised before coming into effect. Until then, it’s still illegal for a learner driver to drive on a motorway.

Re: Plans to let learner drivers onto motorways

Been in this business 15 years and every couple of years this crops up. All until the transport minister moves jobs or gets sacked and then the idea gets shelved. This is not a new idea!!!

Great for a headline but would be good to see it get passed through parliament this time. It won't!!!
