Learning to drive is an exciting milestone. It can also be a little intimidating, especially when navigating the motorway. How many motorway lessons do you need to pass your test? Technically none as you won’t hit the motorway during your UK driving test. That said, it’s always worth investing in a few lessons to build confidence behind the wheel and become a safer and more confident driver.

Building confidence on motorways

There’s no hard and fast answer to how many motorway lessons you need. It really depends on your confidence as a driver and familiarity with the motorway. Some new drivers can easily learn the ropes from the same parent or friend who taught them to drive. Other new drivers find the motorway a little daunting and prefer to take a lesson or two with a professional instructor.

There are also drivers who will need 10 or more lessons on the motorway before feeling confident. All scenarios are completely normal. Remember, driving is extremely personal and it’s important not to compare yourself to others.

The bottom line on “how many motorway lessons do you need?” Take as many lessons as you need to feel comfortable on the motorway. Purchasing lessons in packages can be a great way to save, especially for budget-conscious young drivers.
