Driving Lesson advice due to Coronavirus

UPDATED: 22nd March

The health and wellbeing of all our pupils, instructors, trainers and staff is the most important concern for us as a business and we continue to follow the guidance from the Government and the NHS. 

To date, there has been no advice – from the Government or the DVSA – explicitly preventing driving lessons from being undertaken.

Please liaise with your Bill Plant Driving School Instructor with regards to your Driving Lessons.

Original Blog Post – 11th March

As you’ll no doubt be aware, a UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Advice on continuing with your driving lessons
As the Government and NHS have stated you should not be unduly worried about the possibility of catching Coronavirus, with the UK currently rated as moderate risk (11th March).

Therefore, unless you have specifically been advised otherwise there is no reason why you should not continue to undertake your driving lessons with your Bill Plant Driving School Instructor as normal.

We are advising all our nationwide Driving Instructors take the relevant hygiene measures alongside further in-car protocols such as cleaning the steering wheel and gear stick before and after each lesson.

What action you can take
Please help to support the campaign, to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus, which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands.

For more information on Coronavirus please visit the NHS website including their helpful “Common questions about Coronavirus”.
