Sadly, we have just received confirmation from the DVSA that all Driving lessons, Practical tests and Theory tests will be suspended in England (including for critical workers) from Thursday 5 November. They’re allowed to start again on Wednesday 2 December 2020.
In the previous lockdown the changes had a big impact on the our waiting list, DARE2DRIVE therefore fully understands if anyone wishes to change to another instructor that can offer a space sooner than we are able. All we ask is that you let us know, so we can you remove your name from our books.
The changes being made include: Thursday 5th November to Wednesday 2nd of December 2020. If the return date changes, this will be updated.
All customers will be notified by email of the changes to lessons and tests.
When lessons resume, your instructor will NOT come to your door. They will wait in their vehicle for you to appear. If you do not arrive within 10 minutes of your start time, your instructor will leave, and you will forfeit your fee for that session.
Payment method – You will be asked to pay via bank transfer where possible, a minimum of 24 hours before each lesson or the first lesson of a block. Bank details will be provided. If this is not possible please contact us and other means will be discussed.
Cleaning of vehicle – The car and keys will be thoroughly cleaned before/after every lesson.
Wearing of gloves – All clients will be asked to wear gloves, either cotton (only if you have a skin condition that you have previously mentioned), latex or vinyl. These are provided free of charge by DARE2DRIVE, you will be asked to put these on before entering the vehicle. These must not be removed before leaving the vehicle.
Wearing of face coverings – Face coverings must be worn; this is to minimise the risk of infection. DARE2DRIVE will provide a cloth face covering which can be washed for future use free of charge. Disposable face masks will also be available for a small fee if you have not arrived with a face covering after the first session. Face coverings must be put on before entering the vehicle and not removed before leaving the vehicle.
Waste bags will be available for the disposal of gloves and face coverings if applicable.
DARE2DRIVE suggest you change your clothing and shower or bath after your lesson.
DARE2DRIVE do not hold any responsibility for the contraction of Covid-19. We will do everything we can to limit the risk of infection and will expect you to do the same. If you or any family members have any of the known symptoms; cough, fever, loss of taste or smell; please inform us immediately, letting us know the date symptoms started. If you cancel at short notice due to Covid-19 symptoms NO cancellation fee will be charged, but you will be expected not to return for lessons for a minimum of 21 days. All other cancellations fees remain the same. DARE2DRIVE will let you know immediately if any instructors or family members have symptoms, if this is the case, lessons will cease for a period of 21 days, this may be at short notice.
