What basic rule applies when you’re using a motorway?
Use the lane that has the least traffic
Keep to the left-hand lane unless overtaking
Overtake on the side that’s clearest
Try to keep above 50 mph to prevent congestion
You should normally travel in the left-hand lane unless you’re overtaking a slower-moving vehicle. When you’ve finished overtaking, move back into the left-hand lane, but don’t cut across in front of the vehicle that you’ve overtaken.
