Guidelines for Driving
Lessons After Lockdown

 

Before Lessons Start

Before lessons can commence, three areas need to be considered:

  • Do you have the symptoms?
  • Do you fall into a high-risk category?
  • Do you have a relative or partner who falls into a high-risk category?

If you answer yes to any of these areas, you are unable to commence with driving lessons at present. Please contact me to discuss further so I can assess the situation and make an informed decision.

Symptoms

Just to reiterate the symptoms of Covid-19 described by the government are (but not exclusively):

  • A high temperature – this means a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • A loss of taste or smell

PPE

You must provide your own PPE. I will have a small supply of face coverings but as I am not increasing lesson prices, I would appreciate it if you can provide your own protective equipment.

Preparing the Car Before & After Each Lesson

I will clean my car thoroughly with an anti-bacterial cleaner. The areas of the car that will be cleaned are:

  • Door handles – both inside and out
  • Bonnet release lever – both inside and outside the car
  • Windows and mirror controls
  • Washable seat cover
  • Seatbelt and connector
  • Controls – gear lever, steering wheel, indicator and windscreen wiper stalks, start/stop engine button

Before the Lesson

  • Call or text if you have had symptoms within the last 7 days or been in contact with anyone showing symptoms within the last 14 days
  • Wash hands for at least 20 seconds immediately before leaving the house
  • If you are wearing disposable gloves, please put them on just before getting into the car
  • Please wear clothing that covers both arms and legs
  • We will have a brief conversation to assess whether you are fine to start the lesson
  • If symptoms arise during the lesson it will be immediately terminated, and the date recorded
  • Confirm that you have washed your hands. If you have not I will provide hand sanitiser before entering the car

During the Lesson

  • The windows will be open as much as possible depending on the weather conditions
  • The air-conditioning will always be turned off
  • If using my tablet for teaching only I will handle it
  • We will only sit facing forwards and at no point in the car will we face directly at each other
  • Lesson payment is only via bank transfer
  • I have to demonstrate a scenario or take control of the car I will wipe down the controls after use
  • I will remind you to wash your hands immediately after the lesson
  • It is your responsibility to inform me if you or anyone you are in contact with is unwell
  • I will dispose of any wipes used into a bin bag immediately after the lesson

After the Lesson

  • I will wash my hands immediately when I return home
  • I will wash my clothes immediately upon returning home
  • I will take a shower immediately upon returning home

Revised Cancellation Policy

I will contact you before each lesson to check:

  • If you or anyone in your household has become unwell or has symptoms of COVID
  • If you or anyone in your household has been tested in the last week
  • If you believe you may have been in contact with someone showing symptoms
  • If you or anyone in your household have become unwell or are showing symptoms

If so, please inform me. Your lesson will be rescheduled to a later date at no cost. If I have any of the above, I will inform you and reschedule your lesson.

Should we show symptoms during the lesson, the lesson will be terminated at no cost.
