We need to do all that we can to protect the driver training industry to make sure that we can continue to offer a driving test service. If driving examiners have COVID-19 or come into contact with someone who has it, they cannot work and driving tests will be cancelled.
Just one driving examiner who has to self-isolate as a result of testing positive or coming into close contact with someone with COVID-19 will cause 40 or more driving tests to be cancelled.
This is why it’s vital that everyone continues to follow government guidance about protecting themselves and others from COVID-19 so we can keep training and testing on track.
1.Keep your car clean and let fresh air in
3.Rapid lateral flow tests
It is really important that you take regular rapid lateral flow tests and encourage your pupils to do the same.
You should take a rapid lateral flow test twice a week (every 3 or 4 days).
Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms. Rapid lateral flow tests help to find cases in people who may have no symptoms but are still infectious and can give the virus to others.
Help us to help you achieve that “All important goal” by continuing to use best working practices.
