Driving Lessons during the Coronavirus Pandemic


We have re-started driving lessons for all our customers!


Contact us and we will ask one of our instructors to book you in for your lessons. 


We have automatic and manual instructors available either through our team or colleagues and partners. 


Text or call 07812377119.  E-mail info@superdriver.co.uk. Or message us via Facebook.


Theory tests have re-started.  Practical tests start again on 22nd July.




LESSON PRECAUTIONS - KEEPING US BOTH AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE



Our instructor will take precautions before each lesson...


1.   Shortly before we arrive for every driving lesson, we will ask you to confirm that you are fit to drive and have no COVID-19 symptoms (a high temperature, a new continuous cough, a loss of taste or smell).  We will also ask if anyone in your household/bubble has symptoms.  Please confirm as soon as requested.  If you have symptoms the lesson will be terminated and future lessons cannot re-start until you have recovered and for a minimum of 14 days unless you supply proof of a negative test result.


2.  When your instructor arrives for your lesson, they will clean the controls and surfaces of their car before you get in.  They will visually assess you have no symptoms and ask if you are okay again and if you have been in contact with others that have COVID-19.  Please wash your hands before your lesson and after.  Please bring your own hand sanitiser if you wish to.  Your instructor will have their own santiser.



3.  Your instructor may wear a face and nose covering, they may request that you do.  Your instructor may wear gloves, they may request that you do.  You will know this in advance of your lessons.  If you are not requested to wear a mask or gloves, avoid touching your face.



4.  If you display any COVID-19 symptoms whilst driving, the instructor will terminate the lesson immediately.



5.  During the lesson the windows will be lowered for ventilation.  We will not provide any handouts or ask you to touch any of our training materials.  You may use your smart phone to take a photo.  Please look ahead whilst we are talking to you even if we are at the side of the road. 



6.  If we are asked to provide your details to NHS Track and Trace Agents we will do so immediately.  By taking lessons with us you agree to this.  If we are asked to self isolate by Track and Trace Agents we will until we are declared fit by testing.



7.  Please do not just consider yourself, consider the risk to others in your household who may be at high risk before starting driving lessons.  Please feel free to discuss any additional precautions you would like to take with your instructor.



8.  These precautions may not stop transmission of COVID-19.  You are taking lessons at your own risk as are we.  We are following guidelines from NASP.



9.  We will not charge any cancellations fees if you cancel with COVID-19 symptoms, unless we arrive at your house for your driving lesson and you have COVID-19 symptons.  We will ask for proof that you have been tested as this may effect us and our need to self isolate.  We will ask you to send us confirmation of a test result.   Remember, unless you provide evidence of a negative test result, you cannot continue your driving lessons for 14 days.



10.  The preferred payment method is bank transfer, please organise the transfer before your lessson starts.  If you need to pay with cash, please have the correct amount.





Thank you, see you soon!

CAN I BOOK A PRACTICAL DRIVING TEST?


You cannot book a practical test unless you are a critical worker. 


All other tests are suspended.  If you had a test booked and a date confirmed it will no longer go ahead.  The DVSA will email you and ask you to select a new date.  Tests will restart on 22nd July.

Your instructor can discuss with you precautions that your driving test examiner will take and any differences to the normal driving test. The main points are 1) the toilet facilities will not be available at the test centre unless in an emergency; 2) if you make a serious or dangerous fault the examiner will direct you back to the test centre straight away; 3) both you and the examiner will wear face coverings.
