Detail of outcome

We received 2,928 responses to the consultation.

On the basis of responses received, we propose to make changes to legislation. The changes would allow learner drivers to receive instruction on motorways, before their test, when accompanied by an approved driving instructor (ADI) in a dual-controlled car.
