The Coronavirus pandemic has had massive implications on the driver training industry. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been various interruptions to driver training and testing during the lockdowns we have experienced.
Ince emerging from lockdown 3.0, there has been a huge uptick in the demand for lessons and tests.
While driving lessons can go ahead and Covid-19 continues to pose a threat to health however successful the vaccine rollout is, we must take precautions during driving lessons to keep both instructors and students safe.
Despite the Government relaxing legal rules regarding face coverings, masks MUST be worn on the car during driving lessons
You must keep good personal hygiene. Please wash and sanitise your hands before coming to your lesson. Hand sanitiser is available in the car
If you display symptoms of Covid-19, DO NOT attend your driving lesson. Inform your instructor and get a PCR test. Your lessons will not resume until you test negative
It is recommended that you regularly complete a lateral flow test. You can apply for these for free on the Gov.uk website.
As of 16th August 2021, you will no longer be required to self isolate if you have had both doses of the vaccine unless you test positive.
