As of 2018 learner driver’s will be allowed on the motorway but only in a dual controlled car!!
But it’s not a compulsory part of their training and will not be part of the test.
Good thing or Bad idea??
Personally i feel the graduated licence is the best way to go, i worry some instructors will take pupils on before they are fully ready.
How long will it be before an accident is caused by a learner and everyone is shouting “they should not be on it”
We’ll wait and see.
