Motorway Driving Tips

Driving on a motorway for the first time can be both exciting and a little daunting - exciting as it is something new whilst daunting as you won't have experienced driving on a motorway before (although you will have been on dual carriageways which has some similarities).

Before setting off on a motorway journey you should ensure that the tyre pressure is correct, doing this when the tyres are cold will ensure that you get a reliable reading. You also need to ensure that you have enough petrol for the journey that you are about to embark on and that the oil and water levels are fine, and additionally the windscreen washing bottle is sufficiently full. Then you need to check the brake and clutch fluid reservoirs are full and finally lights and indicators are working.

The first time that you drive on the motorway, it is recommended that you go on for a short stretch only - don't do a several hour journey as your first motorway experience, just go on then come off a few exits later. Also ensure that you plan the route thoroughly as you want to be able to concentrate on getting used to motorway driving without worrying about the route you are taking. If possible do a route you are familiar with from family journeys for instance so that you are familiar with the journey in advance of doing it.

If you are uncertain about any element of motorway driving then refresh your memory by reading the highway code with regard to motorways.
