More on Motorway Driving

Signs that let you know there is a motorway ahead are rectangular, and they have a green background. This shows that they are information signs on a primary road.

The part with the reference to a motorway will be in blue to let you know it is indeed a motorway - for instance it might read M1.

The parts of a motorway journey that many do not look forward to is joining the road and then to a lesser extent leaving it. You have to remember that traffic already on the motorway are the ones that have priority, and whilst other road traffic will move out usually if it can, don't assume this will be the case and remember in medium or heavy traffic conditions where all the lanes are in use it would not be possible for vehicles to pull out anyway.

Remember to only use the outer lane(s) for overtaking and that for normal driving you should only be in the left hand lane. Whilst you might observe many other road drivers essentially hogging the middle lane in light traffic conditions, you should move back into the left hand lane when you are not overtaking other traffic.

You should also ensure that you leave sufficient distance between yourself and other road vehicles, so that's a gap of at least 70 metres to the car in front if you are travelling at 70mph.
