When will driving lessons start again?
According to the government’s recent announcement setting out a roadmap out of lockdown, driving lessons are set to return no earlier than 14th April.
We have yet at the time of writing had confirmation from DVSA when lessons can return. As long as stage 1 of the roadmap goes well the government stick to the date of April 14th then we should be returning then. We are currently planning and booking driving lessons based on that date.
When will driving tests start again?
As with driving lessons, driving tests are set to return on the 14th of April. However, the DVSA may decide to delay the restart of tests to give learners a chance to prepare for the test. We are currently planning around the 14th April date set out in the government’s roadmap but update once the DVSA confirms dates.
What will happen if I already had a driving test booked?
If you already had a driving test booked then the DVSA will automatically move this to a new date. You can also change it yourself if you wish or ask your instructor to manage it if they offer that service. Having not had lessons for a long period you will want to make sure you book some driving lessons to ensure you’re prepared.
