A 53-year-old P-plate driver is likely to be charged after nearly hitting a police car while travelling the wrong way on a freeway near Melbourne.

The man kept driving on the wrong side of the Western Freeway at Rockbank following the near collision with the dog squad vehicle early on Wednesday, causing others vehicles to swerve to avoid a crash.

The Braybrook man eventually pulled over, and had his car impounded. Police are expected to charge him on summons with conduct endangering life and other traffic-related offences.
