Driving on Motorways

The high speeds and long distances often travelled on motorways can take their toll on both the vehicle and the driver. This module will teach you how to prepare for and deal safely with motorway journeys.

In some areas you might not be able to gain experience of motorways with your instructor. If this is the case you will need to fully understand the theory of motorway driving and take the first available opportunity to put that theory into practice.

This module of your Pass-Plus course will consider:

Planning journeys in advance
Joining and leaving a motorway, using slip roads
Safe speeds in different circumstances
Effective observation all around your vehicle
Signs, signals and markings
Overtaking and lane discipline
Courtesy to other road users
Motorway fatigue
Breakdown procedures
Use of lights, including hazard warning lights
Debris on the carriageway
Crosswinds
