Update – 15th June 2020

The DVSA have today repeated the advice that Driving instructors should only be teaching Key Workers who have a special emergency test booked.

The booked tests that had been rescheduled for late June / early July have now been postponed again, with no new date given. We will be informed when we can rebook these. The pupils effected will be given priority by the DVSA when rebooking.

So I am afraid we are still all on hold. I will continue to monitor the situation and will update here at the end of the month, unless there is any change before.

On a positive note, I will be able to take contactless payment once lessons do restart.

Stay safe everyone – Alan  

Update – 1st June 2020

Current advice from DVSA is still that Driving Instructors should only be working if teaching Key Workers who have a special emergency test booked.

With the lockdown easing things should change soon.

Pupils who had tests cancelled prior to lockdown, currently have them rebooked for late June / early July. I will obviously need to prioritise these pupils first, assuming those tests will go ahead.

I will then see what can be done for the rest of my pupils. It is likely that in the early stages of the return I will be working reduced hours.

If the situation changes, I will let you know. Please check back here regularly, I will update on 15th June (if not before)

Coronavirus – Covid-19

With the Lockdown continuing, I have little choice but to continue with the suspension of driving lessons. I will review the situation again on 30th May. Stay Safe everyone. Alan

23rd March 2020

As of 23rd March 2020, following advice received, I have taken the decision to suspend driving lessons. This is for the safety of myself, my pupils and all our families.
It is simply not possible to keep 2 metres apart when in a car.
This decision was made prior to the Governments announcement of the Lockdown, which confirms that this was the correct thing to do.

I will be reviewing the situation on 30th April, then regularly after that. All existing pupils will be contacted when lessons restart.

Good luck, stay safe and I will see you when Drivewise is up and running again.
