Learners Can Now Take Lessons on the Motorway

According to the news, learner drivers in England, Scotland and Wales will be allowed to have lessons on the motorway by 2018.
The Department for Transport stated that lessons would take place in cars with dual control pedals and must be given by an approved driving instructor, and not by friends or family members, however qualified or experienced.
At present only drivers who have passed their test are permitted to drive on the motorway, but in 2015 the Department for Transport had said it would consider a change in the law in the not too distant future.
One transport secretary stated that allowing learners to drive on motorways in a supportive environment will help them develop a practical understanding of how to use motorways safely before driving independently, while some people believe it could be potentially hazardous.
What are your thoughts on learners being permitted to have lessons on the motorways?

Safe driving from Britannia!
