Mixed reaction to allowing learner drivers onto motorways during lessons

All drivers remember the first time. That excited, nervous feeling as you head down the slip road, speeding up to 50... 60... 70mph, indicator on, a final check the coast is clear.
Have your say
Very well put Linda.Some very impractical stuff being mentioned.John o groats to Perth (nearest motorway) 244 miles, 6 hours 6 mins via shortest route A9, very expensive for a motorway lesson in driving.
If action is not taken until after the main driving test how is it to be checked whether new drivers are using the motorway? Clearly any additional tuition must be completed and documented before the driving test.
So wrong. And linda wills, you're also wrong !! upon passing theirs tests, newly qualified drivers still shouldn't be allowed on the motorways until taking further lessons and taking a second test solely based on motorway driving. Surely a much safer option.
