COVID-19 Guidance

Before each lesson:

• Be symptom-free
You must not come for your driving lesson or test if:
• you or someone you live with has COVID-19 symptoms
• you’ve been advised to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace

• Wash your hands
Before and after each lesson, including arms if you wear short sleeves.

• Wear a face mask
Consider wearing a face covering throughout the lesson and take it with you afterwards.

Additional guidance

Face coverings

Pupils and instructors should bring and wear a face covering during the driving lesson. If you are not able to wear a face covering, you must inform your instructor in advance of the lesson. Please ensure your mouth and nose are fully covered and there are no gaps between your face and the covering.

There is a high possibility of glasses/eye protection fogging up. Where this issue arises before or during your lesson, ensure you safely resolve the problem.

Vehicle cleanliness and ventilation

The vehicle will be cleaned using an anti-viral spray or wipes in advance of your lesson.

Your instructor will ensure the vehicle is ventilated appropriately throughout the lesson (at least one window open). If weather conditions make this impossible, the instructor may reschedule your lesson.


No additional passengers are permitted during your lessons.
