The maximum speed limit on a UK motorway is 70mph. However, let’s be honest, this speed limit is regularly exceeded. With the type of speeds that are reached on a motorway, it is essential that you are anticipating what is happening far ahead of your vehicle as well as keeping up to date and using methods to try and limit risk from behind. Due to the amount of speed that is involved, it’s crucial that safe following distances are maintained meaning that in an emergency you will have time to react.
It is currently illegal to drive on a motorway in the UK unless you hold a Full UK driving licence. It is often the case that newly qualified drivers lack in confidence when using a motorway for the first time as the only experience they can relate to is their use of national speed limit dual carriageways – the dangerous part is that some driving instructors don’t incorporate this extensively enough into their driving lessons and new drivers aren’t self-sufficient enough in this area to keep themselves safe. Some manage to piece it together in time, others aren’t so lucky.
