Driving lessons in troubled times to the NHS
It might not be driving lessons as usual, but we can continue helping the NHS key workers to stay safe so they can continue helping us!
As the UK lock down shows some signs of easing the social distancing guidelines are still in place, which means no driving lessons.
The government haven’t mentioned driving instructors or driving lessons in any recent bulletin, and so we remain uncertain as to when we can get back to work.
Thousands of people are poised ready to start or continue driving lessons, but for the moment driving schools are still closed to all but front line workers.
But their is some good news;
NHS front line worker Yahya Khedr passed his essential driving test today at his FIRST attempt.
Yahya now plans to buy a car as soon as possible to avoid relying on buses, and taxis to get to work.
The BIG Question, when can you start to take driving lessons again?
There may already be a few instructors back to work, but most driving schools are waiting for some sort of confirmation to go back from either the DVSA or the government.
Whether this will come in June or July no one knows but it would be a nice gesture if some government official actually acknowledged the driving instruction industry, and gave us some dates.
We are planning to return on the 6th July unless we here otherwise, so if you want to beat the rush to book driving lessons call us today and book in advance.
In the meantime, I’ll keep you posted.
