4. Need To Use Motorways – Those who need to use the motorway more, and want to ensure their skills are up to the challenge
Your Motorway Anxiety:
Motorway anxiety is much more common than most think. Despite them being the safest of all UK roads, the speed, congestion and often complex junctions leave many dreading the thought of driving on them. This is why we have designed our bespoke motorway course, designed for drivers who want to regain their freedom and take control of motorway driving, once and for all.
Our motorway courses are similar to our very popular nationwide advanced driving courses. The first thing we do on all our motorway courses is to listen to you, discuss your anxieties, talk about things you’re ok with, and also things, which really concern you about motorway driving. Listening means we can much better bespoke the training to your own specific needs. During a course this is what we typically cover, although it does often vary from driver to driver:
1. How to safely enter and exit a motorway
2. Keeping a safe distance from other motorway users
3. Dealing with adverse weather (rain and wind mainly) on a motorway
4. How to cope with and defuse road rage on motorways
5. Learning to safely manage speed on motorways
6. How to remain alert on a long journey
7. How to recognise driver fatigue
8. Anticipate the actions and intentions of other motorway users
9. Rules and motorway signals
10. What to do in the event of a breakdown on a motorway
11. Observation and advanced planning
Our motorway driving courses are delivered by DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency) registered advanced driving instructors, who all have an extensive level of experience in delivering driver training to full licence holders.
1. We have over 200 tutors all over the UK
2. We come to you for the training
3. All training takes place in your own car or van

On the Day:
Talking & Opening Up: On the day of the course, you will meet your tutor for a further informal, non-judgemental chat before the driving starts. We have a carefully set of questions we ask at the start, designed to get a better understanding of you and how best we can help. We ask insightful questions such as:
- How you rate your driving
- What are your main fears and concerns
- What you want to achieve from the training
- What has motivated you to do this training
- What sort of driver you would love to become
The things you discuss here will form the pathway to improved driving confidence, which will be referred back to during your training with us.
There will be an initial drive where you will drive without any coaching from the tutor. This allows the tutor to assess your current strengths and weaknesses. A short debrief takes place before the training begins.
If you have not driven on a motorway, or are specifically anxious about motorways, we will not ask you to drive unaided on the motorway from the very start. Here we tend to build up to motorway driving.
