Latest lockdown lowdown
The Prime Minister announces the proposed road map out of pandemic restriction
The Prime Minister Boris Johnson has today announced the road map for the easing of lockdown measures in England.
This time driving tests were mentioned directly in the document – paragraph 110 in the document.
We come under Step 2, which means we cannot begin teaching again earlier than 12 April, when along with close contact businesses – “Activities such as driving tests may also resume.”
- 110. Additional premises will be able to reopen but should only be visited alone or with household groups: non-essential retail; personal care premises such as hairdressers, salons and close contact services; and indoor leisure facilities such as gyms and spas (but not including saunas and steam rooms, which are due to open at Step 3). Overnight stays away from home in this country will be permitted and self-contained accommodation – those that do not require shared use of bathing, entry/exit, catering or sleeping facilities – can also reopen, though must only be used by members of the same household. The Government will open public buildings such as libraries and community centres. Activities such as driving tests may also resume.
Of course, we must remember that the dates could be delayed, depending on the progress of the disease.
We are expecting information from DVSA
