Using the motorway


Joining the motorway

70mph speed limit

Travelling on the motorway may feel daunting, regardless of how much experience you have behind the wheel. Try building up your confidence by starting with a quieter stretch of road and avoiding rush hour. Be sure to also stay within the speed limit and keep left unless you're overtaking.
