Learners and passengers - ffidrac {P}
I am looking for, but unable to find, a law prohibiting learner car drivers carrying passengers.

Bikes - no pillion for learners understood.

Apart from the supervising full driver I can find no mention of passenger carrying for provisional car drivers.

The reason I ask is that a dissagreement in the pub has got me looking.

Thanks for any help

There is no such law.

It is permissable for a learner car driver to carry passengers provided at least one of them meets the necessary supervision requirements.

From Highway Code:


Learner drivers

Learners driving a car MUST hold a valid provisional licence. They MUST be supervised by someone at least 21 years old who holds a full EC/EEA licence for that type of car (automatic or manual) and has held one for at least three years.
Law MV(DL)R reg 16

carry passengers provided at least one of them meets the necessary
supervision requirements.


Many thanks, that is what I always understood but you know how it is in the pub, someone always knows better!!

I hadn't realised the rules had changed - I must keep up to date.
