How we make them 'COVID secure'

Updated 1st November 2022

Introduction

Coronavirus may be a milder illness than it was but it's still a significant risk to the health of many people, especially the elderly and vulnerable.

So we need to minimise the health risks associated with sharing a car. By taking a few simple precautions we can greatly reduce the chances of catching or transmitting coronavirus and other illnesses.

The guidance set out below explains what we will do.

How are you feeling?

Let me know if you test positive or you've had any of the symptoms of coronavirus in the week before your lesson (or you've been in close contact with someone who has any of the symptoms of coronavirus) so I can rearrange your lesson.
Even if you feel unwell just before your lesson is about to start, no problem. Just 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 all the contact surfaces of the car - steering wheel, indicators, handbrake, keys etc. - so you be assured that 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.
