Learners will be allowed on Motorways from 2018

Although the bill hasn't been passed through Parliament yet, the DVSA are confident that it will go through.  The change is likely to take place Spring 2018.

Re: Learners will be allowed on Motorways from 2018

Some dual carriageways are more dangerous than motorways due to shorter slip roads and no hard shoulders. I find it hard to understand why the change has not been made before.

They have been talking about this for over 20 years. Will be good if they finally follow through and actually do it!!

As I understand it Scotland is included in this legislation. However, Spring 2018 is a while away and the UK government might be busy with other things and so it might not happen, yet again. I hope it does though as it will save me about 10 minutes of lesson time getting to the training areas.
