Learner drivers to be allowed on motorways

uk-motorway-lease4less

New government plans could see learner drivers allowed on the motorway in a bid to help make our roads safer.

Ministers have announced that learner drivers will be able to have lessons on motorways with an approved driving instructor in a dual controlled car. Motoring experts in the UK have spoken in favour of these changes as new drivers often find going on motorways a daunting task, instead choosing to take back roads.

This is just one of the many changes that have been proposed in an aim to make the UK’s roads safer. Another plan is aimed at novice motorcycle riders–as it stands no theory test is in place for the young bikers among us but the government have proposed plans to include a theory test as part of their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course.

The Transport Minister, Andrew Jones believes that these changes will give learner drivers the knowledge and experience they need to help keep UK roads safe. He said:

“We have some of the safest roads in the world and we want to make them even safer. These changes will equip learners with a wider range of experience and greater skill set which will improve safety levels on our roads.”

RAC’s Director, Steve Gooding has also spoken in favour of the changes, stating that our motorways are our safest roads.

“The casualty statistics tell us that motorways are our safest roads, but they can feel anything but safe to a newly qualified driver heading down the slip road for the first time to join a fast moving, often heavy, flow of traffic. Many are so intimidated by the motorway environment that they choose instead to use statistically more dangerous roads, so we welcome this move which will help new drivers get the training they need to use motorways safely.” 

The Government has looked at life sentences for drivers who cause death by driving while using their mobile phones. In 2015, 122 people were sentenced for causing death by dangerous driving, a further 21 people were convicted for killing someone when under the influence of drink or drugs.
