Instructor Support Update – 5th February

DVSA Update
As stated earlier this week, the DVSA has launched a limited Emergency Services Driving Lessons and Tests service.

This will be available to eligible NHS health / social care workers, the emergency services and local councils who need to both drive as part of their job and respond to ‘threats to life’.

The DVSA will be contacting these organisations directly to explain how they can access this service.

Please find a link to our blog post, including a Q&A, to share with your pupils – https://www.billplant.co.uk/blog/emergency-worker-driving-lessons-and-test-update

Monthly PR Activity
January was another very positive month of press activity for Bill Plant Driving School, as the activity with our PR agency achieved over 250+ pieces of coverage.

PR plays an integral tactic to enhance the reputation of Bill Plant Driving School and build new audiences. Our collective growth is fueled by increasing our awareness and our customers continually seeing Bill Plant Driving School as a trustworthy and credible brand.

February’s activity has already started strongly, as we’ve been featured in the Manchester Evening News, Yahoo! and on Talktalk.co.uk this week.

Should you have any ideas or positive pupil stories please do not hesitate to speak to our Marketing Team on this by emailing media@billplant.co.uk.
