Driving on the Motorway

Static Hazards

As a learner driver, the motorway can seem like a scary and dangerous place to drive. It is totally natural for you to feel nervous the first few times you drive on the motorway, but don’t worry because after some practise you will get used to it.

If you only have a few driving lessons left until you take your test, then you are probably keeping your eye out for some good deals on new cars. You have probably also browsed on various car insurance websites, from RAC Car Insurance to Direct Line, to try and find the best deal. In the meantime, it is important to learn all the rules of the road which is sure to give you some confidence when you drive alone for the first time.

Why not brush up on your driving knowledge by taking the motorway quiz below?

Question 1 – When should you use your rear fog light?
Answer- You must use your headlights or your fog light when your visibility is seriously reduced. This is when you cannot see for more than 100 metres (328 feet). Remember to switch the fog light off when your visibility improves.

Question 2 – It is pouring down with rain on the motorway and your car begins to slide. What is this effect called?
Answer – This effect is called aquaplaning. This is when water on the road accumulates in front of the tyres and your vehicle cannot push it out of the way quick enough.

Question 3 – What is the national speed limit for cars in the left-hand lane of a three-laned motorway?
Answer – You can drive 70MPH here.
