TEMPORARY ADDITION TO TERMS & CONDITIONS
What to expect on the day of your driving lesson
On the day of the lesson, I may call or text you, asking if you or anyone in your household has or have had any symptoms of COVID-19 within the last seven days – or have been in contact with someone who has within the last 14 days. If you have, your lesson will be cancelled. Remember, even if you feel well, you could be one of the many people who don’t show any symptoms.
What you should do before your driving lesson
If you’re given the all-clear for the lesson to go ahead:
• You should wrap up warm during cold spells as the windows will most likely be open during the lesson to improve ventilation.
• Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds immediately before leaving your home for your lesson.
• Wear disposable gloves if you wish to – but only put them on just before getting into the car.
• Meet by the car itself, and not by your front door.
• If I am not 100% happy, I will cancel your lesson on the spot. Please don’t take it personally – I am just trying to keep everyone safe.
• If you are a new client, you will be asked to hold up your provisional driving licence so that I can check it.
What you should do during your driving lesson
To reduce risk during the lesson, I will:
• Hold up any visual aids or training resources, instead of passing them to you.
• Please remain face forward when talking. This is the safest option when a 2-metre gap between two people cannot be maintained.
• Any briefing notes will be sent digitally via text or email where possible. Please remind me of your email address.
• Wipe down the car’s controls if and when I have completed giving you a demonstration drive.
• Payments with cash are fine and I will provide an envelope for you to drop the money into.
What you should do after your driving lesson
As you depart, remember not to shake hands and once you’re back home, do wash your hands as soon as possible. You may also wish to wash the clothes you wore during your lesson immediately.
That all sounds pretty strict, right?
Yes, but remember – these restrictions are there to keep you, me and anyone in your household safe from harm and they won’t be in place forever.
