How we'll manage the health risks

Updated 26th December 2022


When the pandemic was at it's height and the nation was in lock-down, the Broughton School of Motoring continued to teach key workers such as doctors and nurses.

As lock-down eased we returned to more 'normal' working but with some important changes to the way we worked. The car was cleaned between each lesson, we all wore masks, the windows of the car were always open and we used copious amounts of hand sanitiser.

More recently we, like most businesses in the UK, have been 'living with coronavirus'. We don't wear masks any more (you can, if you want to) but the car is still cleaned between lessons and the windows are kept open a bit.

Basically, we take sensible precautions that mitigate the risk of catching and transmitting respiratory illnesses such as coronavirus and influenza.  We ask that you do too.

The guidance below explains what we will do.

How are you feeling?

Please let me know if you've had any of the symptoms of coronavirus or influenza or if you've been in close contact with someone who has any of the symptoms of coronavirus in the week before your lesson.
Even if you feel unwell just before your lesson is about to start, no problem. Let me know as soon as you can.

At the beginning of your driving lesson

Before I get to the place where I'm picking you up, I will clean the contact surfaces of the car - steering wheel, indicators, handbrake, keys etc. - so the car is as clean as it possibly can be.

During your driving lesson

During your driving lesson the windows of the car will be open a little. So bear that in mind when choosing what to wear!

To sum up...

The simple measures I've described above will help you - and my other clients - to learn to drive in as safe an environment as possible.

If you have any questions, concerns or worries please don't hesitate to get in touch.
