Joining a Motorway

  • Always be careful and pay attention when you join a motorway.

  • Build up speed on the acceleration lane before merging with motorway traffic.

  • Signal in good time to make sure other motorway users know you intend to join the motorway traffic.

  • As you approach the motorway on the slip road, check your mirrors and your blind spot for a safe gap in the traffic.

  • Give way to traffic already on the motorway.

  • Change your speed to fit safely and legally into the traffic (lane1). Stay in the slip road if it continues as an extra lane on the motorway. Avoid crossing a solid white line that separates the traffic lanes.

  • Stay in the left-hand lane (lane1) long enough to adjust to the speed of traffic before you consider overtaking
