CAN YOU HAVE DRIVING LESSONS IN TIERS 1/2/3?

Government guidance on driving lessons and driving tests


This is an update about:

  • how local alert tiers affect driver training and testing

  • waiting rooms

How local restriction tiers affect driver training and testing


The Government has confirmed that driver training and testing can safely restart as normal in areas in tier 1 and 2 when the current national restrictions end on 2 December.


The Government has also confirmed that driving lessons can restart in all tiers when the current national restrictions end on 2 December.


Additional measures for driving tests in tier 3 areas


Our top priority is to keep you, your pupils and our staff safe.


To allow us to continue testing in tier 3 areas we will restart car practical tests in tier 3 areas from 3 December and will be introducing additional safety measures in these areas.


These include:

  • reducing the number of car practical tests our examiners carry out per day to 5 in tier 3 areas

  • anyone who has a car practical test booked in a tier 3 area who is exempt from wearing a face covering may have to delay their test until the area moves out of tier 3. We will reschedule their test if we cannot find a volunteer driving examiner to conduct their test without them wearing a face covering

What this means to you and your pupils


We email everyone in a tier 3 area who has a test booked to let them know about the additional measures.


We’ll also be contacting anyone whose test has been affected by these additional measures to let them know what will happen next.


2 December tests


The Government has clarified that all car practical and theory testing can resume on 2 December in tier 1 and 2 areas.


We previously rescheduled tests booked for this day to a later date.


If you or your pupil had a practical test previously scheduled for 2 December in a tier 1 or 2 area we will be in contact with you today, 1 December, to offer the opportunity to rebook the test for 2 December.


We did not want to automatically rearrange your pupils test to 2 December in case you or your pupil were no longer available or in case your pupil needs refresher lessons with you before your test.


We are very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused for you and your pupils.


Government guidance on theory tests


The Government has confirmed that theory tests can safely restart in all tiers on 2 December.


2 December


We previously rescheduled tests booked for this day to a later date.


If you or your pupil had a theory test previously scheduled for 2 December we will be in contact with you soon to offer the opportunity to rebook the test for 2 December.


We did not want to automatically rearrange your pupils test to 2 December in case your pupil was no longer available.
