A recent survey from the AA has revealed that one in seven drivers avoid going on motorways.

According to the motoring giant, up to five million Brits lack sufficient skills for motorway driving and have spent years doing their best to avoid driving on them.

Commenting on the findings, Simon Douglas from the AA said, “Motorways are Britain’s most feared roads, with a lost generation of drivers avoiding them completely”.

Steve Tattersall from Driving School Lessons, said, “This is a real concern. We encourage people who avoid motorway driving to undertake a course of motorway refesher driving lessons that we and many other UK driving schools provide. These help equip the motorist with the necessary skills and confidence to return to motorway driving”.

The so called motorway phobia means many motorists are driving on more dangerous A-roads.
