Hi all,

Which one is correct? All seems logical to me.

A- You can drive maximum 120 kph on motorways.

B- You can drive 120 kph at most on motorways.

C- You can drive at 120 kph speed at most on motorways.

Thanks in advance,

    I would consider all three wrong.

    A- You can drive at a maximum speed of 120 kph on motorways.
    B and C - You can drive at 120 kph at most on motorways. :(

    Even corrected, I doubt that those would be used by most English speakers. "The speed limit on motorways is 120 kph."

    Like the other posters, I'd say "the speed limit on motorways is...", but if you want to keep your original phrasing then:
    You can drive at 120 kph on motorways​
    You don't need "at most" or "maximum"; the context implies this is what is meant.
