Speed limits on motorways

The speed limits on the motorway are something that you will no doubt be aware of for cars, but is the limit the same for a motorbike? And what about if you are bus or a coach driver?

Another important scenario is that of towing a caravan or trailer. If you ever plan to take one of these on holiday then you might not actually be aware that the speed limit is lower if you are driving such a combination of vehicles, and therefore you need to be aware of this before setting off on a journey so that you drive within legal and safe limits.

Infact, here are the current speed limits in place for different vehicle types for motorway driving:

Cars / motorcycles: 70 mph

Cars towing caravans or trailers: 60 mph

Buses and coaches (up to 12m long): 65 mph

Most goods vehicles: 70 mph

Goods vehicles over 7.5 tonnes: 60 mph

By knowing the correct limits for the vehicle type that you will be driving you can ensure that you drive within legal limits.
