Driving on motorways can be daunting for new drivers but with Focus Driving’s motorway training you can gain the confidence and understanding you need to drive safely and successfully.
While motorways are faster and everyone seems to drive ‘differently’, motorways are actually statistically safer than other roads in relation to the number of accidents occurring. However, motorway accidents occur at higher speeds and usually involve more vehicles. This results in incidents that are usually more serious, with worse injuries for those involved.
With a motorway driving course you can learn how to drive safely and how to cope with motorway specific situations. An increased understanding of motorway environment, legal conventions, and general motorway etiquette through targeted training can substantially reduce your risk of accident.
Focus Driving’s 3-4 hour course is specifically aimed at motorway driving and driver safety and it’s not just for young drivers!
