As a responsible driver training provider it is important to explain:
When people attend lesson appointments these are delivered in a training vehicle which is an enclosed space where the driver and instructor sit side by side. If one person is carrying any respiratory illness, within the course of the driving lesson appointment that illness may easily be transmitted between both people.
If an instructor becomes ill with Covid 19 or any other respiratory illness this may mean that they need time off work to recover and during that time they wouldn’t be able to provide driving lessons or driving test cover.
If an instructor who is scheduled to take a person for their driving test is ill and can not make it, this would be a big disappointment to the individual concerned notwithstanding the cost implication and the waiting time for an alternative driving test appointment.
If you are unwell with any symptoms of Covid 19 / Flu or Cold symptoms please notify your allocated driving instructor as soon as you start feeling unwell and your allocated instructor will reschedule the lesson appointment for you as soon as you are completely recovered (i.e. after the period of 7 to 10 days has passed) without charge.
If anyone in your household has symptoms of Covid 19 or Flu please notify your allocated instructor so that they can make an informed decision whether to reschedule the lesson appointment, regardless of if you are displaying any symptoms or not.
If you turn up to a lesson appointment displaying symptoms of illness unfortunately the lesson appointment would not be able to go ahead and you would loose that lesson appointment time.
If an instructor or individual attending a lesson appointment decides to wear a face covering that is their individual choice to make and will be respected.
If you require an instructor to wear a face covering for your lesson appointments – please notify us at the initial booking form stage, thank you.
We also promote the importance of ventilation in the training vehicles.
The health and safety of the people who are using our services are of the utmost importance to us – thank you.
