So, my question is 

Is there any way for me to tell google maps, to avoid motorways?


I'll add some screenshots to show why the currently suggested answer doesn't seem to apply.

Say I search for my destination

I see no blue circle

I can tap "Get Directions" then I get this screen

So I see the icons for car, bus, cycling, walking.

Say I tap the bottom right three dots. Then it just says  "Reverse start & end"

If I tap the car, then I  get two options. Get Directions, or Navigate.

There's no 3 dots in the top right or anywhere,  with a "route options" option, that the suggested answer mentions.
I'm not seeing the option to avoid motorways.
