Yesterday, 25th June, it was announced that driving lessons could resume on 4th July, with practical tests commencing on 22nd July. We are still waiting for advice on how we should be conducting lessons, but plans for the restart of Drivewise are now being put into action
I will be making a phased restart to lessons, with priority being given to the 4 pupils who had tests booked and cancelled at the start of the lockdown. I will then add more of my existing pupils to the diary as we go. With the extra cleaning that will be needed between lessons, there may be less space in the diary and I may not be able to take on new pupils straight away.
We were told on the 23rd that we could not restart. While the U turn is welcome, I had already made other plans for part of July, which I may not be able to change easily.
I will be contacting all current pupils individually over the next week to discuss how we proceed.
Looking forward to getting back to teaching you all.
