    I thought that you were able to drive on the motorway straight after having passed your test, however someone mentioned to me recently that you have to have been driving for a year before you can drive on the motorway? :confused:

    Can anyone clear this up for me?

    In the UK you can drive on the motorway as soon as you've passed your test. All the legal requirements & speed limits are the same for any driver.

    You can legally drive on the motorway as soon as you've passed your test. If you're uncomfortable at the thought of doing that, maybe doing pass-plus would be a good step to get used to driving at higher speeds.

    You can drive on the motorway straight away - but I would get a lesson from driving instructor before you do so - there are some mad drivers out there and motorways make em worse and there is motorway etiquette too
