The steps we’re taking to ensure your safety


Our driving instructors will follow industry best practice on PPE requirements on every lesson – they will carry disposable facemasks if the pupil requires one

Vehicle sanitisation 

Driving instructors will prepare the car and wipe down the steering wheel and all other controls before the start of and at the end of every lesson with anti-bacterial/anti-virus wipes.

Hand sanitizer (min 70% alcohol)  is carried in each car.

All discussions of teaching points will be done side to side rather than facing each other

Vehicle windows will be kept open slightly to allow for a continuous flow of fresh air

Your driving instructor will ask you to use this if needed at the start and end of each driving lesson.

Additional training

Driver Training Driving Instructors will be specifically trained in how to reduce viral contamination and best practice for operating a safe driving lesson

Learner and instructor safety

Every customer will be asked to declare that they are symptom free before any driving lesson can begin

We will of course endeavour to support any learner in the ‘critical worker’ category and will do all we can to help them qualify. Please email us for help

Driving Lesson Duration

Driving lessons will now either be as 60 or 90 minute lessons maximum

Driving Tests

Before the lockdown, the average waiting time for driving tests was around 2 to 3 months. Then the lockdown came and we also lost March, April, May and June. On return to testing the DVSA has said that not all driving examiners will feel able to return to work.

So the waiting time for driving tests in Shrewsbury may well turn out to be between 3 and 9 months, As of today’s announcement  (23/6/20) The only driving tests being done are for keyworkers specifically those in the NHS.

Weekly Lessons & Intensive Driving Courses For Key Workers

During this time, it’s important key workers can continue their jobs with ease. While lessons and tests have stopped, key workers will still be able to have driving lessons and emergency tests.

We are working hard to provide safe weekly lessons and intensive driving courses for key workers. We have fit & healthy driving instructors teaching key workers, our instructors will help you pass as quickly and safely as possible.

We are offering driving lessons for NHS workers, teaching staff, social workers and anyone whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response. Please see below for a full list of all critical workers.

We are postponing driving lessons for the general public until 1st June 2020. However, we will continue to provide lessons for key workers that need them, if it is safe to do so. The safety of our instructors and pupils is very important to us, and we are taking precautions to help them stay safe.

If you are a Key Worker urgently requiring Driving Lessons, as part of your booked Driving Test please give us a call or text on 07791 152 046 or complete the enquiry form.
