:eek No that's not true - you are definately still allowed on the motorway! I got my full licence in May and I'm 100% sure of this! There is talk of bringing in restricted full licences where this would be one of the restrictions but I'm not sure if it is definately happening.

That is so irritating.... once you pass your test that should be it...

My dad heard that on the radio, he said it has been in place for a long time now, it just wasnt enforced.

[quote="Mrs C 2B":2irkxkms]My dad heard that on the radio, he said it has been in place for a long time now, it just wasnt enforced.[/quote:2irkxkms] That law has never been in place. Once you have your full licence, you can drive on a motorway. The rules requiring a fully licenced driver to accompany a 1st, 3rd and subsequent provisional driver were always in place but never enforced.
