Covid-19 continues to pose a threat and while we head into 2021 there are new variants that are causing the government concern. Driving lessons must be adapted to help curb the spread of the virus. Working in an enclosed environment without the ability to create a 2 meter social distance between instructor and pupil. we need to put some safety measure into place. 

At least 24 hours before your lesson

I will send you a text message asking you to confirm that you do not have Coronavirus symptoms or tested positive for the virus. I will also ask that you have not been in contact with anyone who has tested positive within the last 14 days. If you answer yes to any of these questions, your lesson will not go ahead. 

Before you leave your house for your lesson

Please make sure that you thoroughly wash you hands for at least 20 seconds in line with NHS and government advice

Before I arrive for your lesson

I will thoroughly sanitise the car making sure that I cover all of the possible points that you may touch, such as the steering wheel, door handles, seatbelt, etc.

When you get in the car

I will ask you to sanitise you hands before touching anything. I will provide sanitiser but you are more than welcome to bring your own along. 

There will be no physical contact between instructor and learner during the lesson

If I have to demonstrate anything and have to touch any points of the car you may touch, I will sanitise that areas before you take over again. 

During the lesson

We will need to make sure there is adequate ventilation to allow clean air to flow through the car. The rear windows will be opened slightly to allow this. Therefore, please wear suitable clothing during colder days. 

Face Coverings

You will be asked to wear a face covering during your lesson. This to not only protect yourself from the virus but to also protect myself. I will also be wearing a face covering. 

The wearing of gloves is not essential

However, if it makes you more comfortable to wear them, you are more than welcome to.
