What will the instructor do to minimise the risk of Coronavirus transmission

Covid 19

I have put the following measures in place to make driving lessons as safe as possible for the pupil and myself and to help minimise the spread of coronavirus:

In-car hygiene

Before and after each lesson, the vehicle will be thoroughly cleaned with antibacterial cleaning products.

Key areas that will be focused on include (but are not limited to): door handles; seat belt; steering wheel; gear stick; handbrake.

Before the start of each lesson 

All pupils will be contacted ahead of the lesson to ensure that they are well and have not shown symptoms in the last 14 days.

Payment for the lesson is now required by bank transfer please.

The pupil will be asked to wash hands for at least 20 seconds or use sanitiser gel before entering the vehicle.

The pupil’s temperature will be taken with a no touch thermometer.

During the lesson

I will wear a protective mask throughout each lesson, and pupils are also asked to wear a mask.  Pupils are expected to provide their own mask.

No handshake will take place, and social distancing will be maintained outside of the vehicle.

Air conditioning will not be used throughout lessons, but the driving instructor will at all times ensure that the car is well ventilated.

Do I need to pass my Theory test before I start practical lessons?
