Waiting Rooms update

By way of update from discussions, DVSA are completing site specific risk assessments for all sites to allow them to start to reinstate the use of waiting areas while taking account of risks of Covid-19 transmission. 

The Welsh Government has announced it will be introducing a “fire-break” to help regain control of coronavirus.

This means that a series of restrictive measures will be in place from 6pm Friday 23 October until the start of Monday 9 November 2020.

You will no doubt have heard that Wales will go into lockdown with a 2 week circuit break.

But what does this mean for driving instructors and driving lessons?
