Before each lesson

Be symptom-free
YOU MUST Confirm with your instructor that you are symptom-free ahead of the lesson via text message (a text message will be sent on the morning of your lesson). By receiving the text message will also confirm that the instructor is symptom-free of COVID-19. A failure to reply to my text message will result in the lesson being cancelled. In the event of COVID-19 like symptoms developing by either instructor or pupil during the lesson, then the lesson terminated.

Wash your hands
Before leaving your home you must wash your hands. You will still be expected to use either the instructor’s antibacterial spray on your hands if you prefer to use your own that’s ok. After the lesson please make sure that when you get in to wash your hands..

Wear a face mask (covering)
During the lesson, you must wear a face covering or mask properly so that it covers both the nose and mouth.

Wear suitable clothing
Please make sure that you wear suitable clothing that covers as much as possible.

Scan My QR Code
I will have a QR code for the purpose of test and trace, please download the Official NHS APP. Should you not want or be able to use the test and trace app and scan the QR code then I will be making a manual record, Should I be contacted via NHS test and trace I will have to give all details to them about who has been in the car.

Additional guidance

Symptom free self-declaration

You must not undertake a driving lesson if you fall into any of these categories:

  • You or someone you live with has coronavirus symptoms. Check the GOV.UK COVID symptoms list beforehand
  • You’ve been told by the NHS Test and Trace service that you’ve been in contact with a person who has coronavirus
  • You have entered or returned to the UK in the last 14 days, except in very limited situations which can be found in the government’s travel exemptions. You can find out more information on the GOV.UK COVID-19 border rules.

Face coverings

Pupils and instructors must bring and wear a face-covering during driving lessons, Because of the nature of the COVID-19virus a face covering will be worn, no exemptions, I hope that you understand this, but i hope that you understand that i do need to minimise the risk during the lesson as much as possible.

There is a possibility of glasses/eye protection fogging up. Where issues arise with this on lessons, ensure you safely resolve the problem.


For the safety and health of pupils and the instructor. The instructor will comply with all COVID-19 regulations and will be taking a lateral flow test twice per week and should the test provide a positive result will cancel all lessons from that time until a PCR test can be taken. As with the covid guidance will then have to isolate for 10 days.
