The Highway Code: rule change for motorways

The Highway Code section about motorways will change from 4 June 2018.

This is because the law is being changed to allow learner drivers to have motorway lessons with an approved driving instructor. This will help to make sure more drivers know how to use motorways safely.

What's changing

The change is to rule 253, which covers who can use motorways.

The rule will have this wording added to it:

'From 4 June 2018 provisional licence holders may drive on the motorway if they are accompanied by an approved driving instructor and are driving a car displaying red L plates (D plates in Wales), that's fitted with dual controls.'
