Prior to Your Lesson
I will attempt to arrive a few minutes early, prior to your lesson start time so please look out for me so we can do and go through all we need to.
I will greet you outside the car prior to your lesson and – observing physical distancing – we will have a last-minute check that you are well and discuss our plan for your lesson. Please note that parents, guardians and partners etc will not be able to accompany us on our lessons at this time.
Look out for me at your designated lesson time so that we can start. I will be unable to come to your door. Please wear appropriate clothing, allowing the windows to remain open for the duration.
I will have wiped down and sanitised the vehicle prior to you entering the vehicle for your lesson.
If you need to present your Provisional Driving Licence (in the case of your first lesson), I will ask you show it to me. I will not touch it. It may be helpful that if possible, you take a photograph of both sides of your Licence and send it to me prior to your first lesson.
Please ensure you have washed your hands prior to getting into the car and that you are wearing a face covering.
I will in any case, give you hand sanitiser as or before you enter the vehicle.
During Your Lesson
I will not share any printed material with you in the car.
Visual learning will be done in such a way that only I touch the material and if required, I will – if needed – send learning materials digitally to you afterwards.
There will be no sharing of writing material/pens/paper etc.
As noted above, it is vital you report to me by phone, email, text message or WhatsApp to report any changes to your health in between lessons.
If I don’t hear from you, then I will come for you at your next agreed lesson date and time.
Be sure to review your Risk Assessment once a week and advise me of any changes prior to your lessons. I request you to take responsibility for this. Failure to do so may result in your lesson not going ahead.
We will need to adhere to this process until further notice. Should any advice or guidance change, you will receive updated notes to reflect this.
All these measures are in place to make sure not only that you and I are as safe as possible, whilst continuing to give you the best opportunity to learn and develop your driving skills.
