Driver Training on Nottingham\'s Motorways

Learner drivers in Nottingham are not legally permitted to drive on the motorway until after passing the test. This means newly qualified motorists are driving on the motorway without any kind of experience. Nottingham's motorways carry a high volume of traffic over four lanes. Here we consider what driving instructors can do to make sure motorists are suitably prepared.

The first thing a new driver needs to deal when taking a motorway driving course is actually joining the carriageway. This is done by means of a slip road and differs from joining other roads as it is done at speed. It is important the instructor ensures that enough acceleration is used to match the speed of traffic on the motorway which could be seventy miles per hour. Too slow an approach can lead to difficulties in joining the motorway. Ultimately traffic on the main carriageway has priority over traffic joining so it can be a long wait at the end of the slip road if the approach is too slow.

When on the motorway the new driver would be well advised to stay in the left hand lane in order to settle into the drive and get used to the high speeds. Another major difference is the number of large vehicles on the road. These have large blind spots and it is important to avoid positioning in the blind spot area. When comfortable on the motorway it may be time to overtake. The mirrors signal manoeuvre routine needs to be employed correctly and the higher approach speeds of other vehicles taken into account. When overtaking is completed then the instructor needs to make sure that the driver returns to the left hand lane. Many Nottingham drivers tend to position permanently in the centre lane which can cause problems for other motorists who wish to overtake.

When training to drive at high speed forward planning and information gathering from signs will be of great importance. The junctions around Nottingham have up to four lanes so if you miss your turning it can be a long detour to find your way back. Early identification of signs and markings is top priority during motorway driving lessons Nottingham. Last second lane changing can be deadly so every move must be made in good time.

Topics covered on the journey will include use of emergency telephones in the event of a breakdown. Knowledge of different coloured road studs and what they mean, how to deal with fatigue and distraction on long journeys and consideration for the safety of other road users.

Leaving the motorway requires tuition regarding perception of speed. Having travelled at higher limits for prolonged periods of time it is easy to fall foul of speed cameras as perception of speed has changed. Lower limits can now seem painfully slow so keep an eye on the speedometer. Driving instructors need to assist the new driver until normal perception of speed returns during the drive.
