Joining the Motorway
4 Look out for the direction signs at the approaches to a motorway so as to avoid joining the wrong carriageway.
5 GIVE WAY TO TRAFFIC ALREADY ON THE MOTORWAY
6 When joining a motorway at an intermediate access point, you will approach it from the slip road on the left. Watch for a safe gap between vehicles in the near side traffic lane on the motorway and increase your speed in the acceleration lane to the speed of traffic in the near side lane before joining it.
