Vehicles not to be driven by learner drivers

10.—(1) No motor vehicle shall be driven on a motorway by a person who is authorised to drive that vehicle only by virtue of his being a holder of a provisional licence under section 97(2) of the Road Traffic Act 1988(1), unless since the date of coming into force of the said provisional licence that person has passed a test prescribed under section 89 of that Act(2) sufficient to entitle him under that Act to be granted a licence, other than a provisional licence, authorising him to drive that vehicle on a road.

(2) Paragraph (1) above does not apply to a large goods vehicle or to a passenger-carrying vehicle.

(3) In this regulation, “large goods vehicle” and “passenger-carrying vehicle” have the meanings given by section 121(3) of the Road Traffic Act 1988.


Section 89 was amended by the Road Traffic (Driver Licensing and Information Systems) Act 1989 (c. 22), sections 4 and 6 and by the Road Traffic Act 1991, Schedule 4, paragraph 63.


Part IV which includes section 121 was substituted by the Road Traffic (Driver Licensing and Information Systems) Act 1989, Schedule 2.
