Lockdown has been a difficult experience for everyone, but with the infection slowly reducing, normal conditions will begin to open up. According to HM Government as from Saturday 4th July 2020 Driving Instructors can return to work and instruct anyone. This is providing risk assessments are carried out and a comprehensive PPE regime is started.
The Intuition School of Motoring will:
1. Do a risk assessment of every pupil regarding their health and well being before taking them on.
2. Take care that the car is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before and after each lesson.
3. Make sure hands are sanitised at the beginning, end and during the lesson if necessary.
4. Instigate a PPE regime where face coverings are used whenever possible.
5. Teach pupils to drive in a safe, secure and clean environment.
This is a checklist of what you need to get driving lessons started:
In preparation to drive, you must: have the right driving licence; be the minimum driving age and meet minimum eyesight rules
If you have not done so, now is the time to apply for your provisional licence. It costs £34 (at present) to apply.
To practice or take lessons you will need a provisional licence.
You have to study to pass your Theory! Recommended materials are the Official Theory and Hazard Perception App from the DVSA in addition to the ‘Driving the Essential Skills’ book by the same company. Do practice by taking a mock theory test. When you are ready, book your theory test, it costs £23 (at present) to apply.
Once you have passed your theory test you can then apply to take the Practical Driving Test, depending on the timing this could be a longish wait and at present will cost £62.
Once passed you can drive so long as you have an insurance policy in place that permits you to drive without supervision.More information can be found on the gov.uk about learning to drive a car on their website.
