At long last life is starting to regain some normality. Since 12 April 2021 Approved Driving Instructors have been able to conduct driving lessons & from 22 April 2021 practical driving test have been conducted.
All of the Associations driving instructors are working hard at providing priority to pupils who have tests booked imminently. As soon as is practical a normal level of service will return. We do hope people looking for an instructor can understand a delay in providing lessons to new pupils.
Currently we are having to conduct our monthly meetings online, via Teams. it is hoped that we will be able to return to face to face meetings in July 2021. More on this will be provided as the relevant easing of lock down is announced.
We are hoping that the current Committee will be willing & able to continue in office for another year, given the torrid year 2020 gave us all. This will be put forward to all members at our next meeting.
The Driver Vehicle Standards Agency are requesting that pupils undertake a Covid-19 Self Test as a minimum, or visit a Covid-19 Testing Centre within a couple of days of a theory test or practical driving test &, should the result come back positive, the pupil cancels their test.
Further updates will be provided as soon as we have them, usually via our WhatsApp Group first.
