Coronavirus - (COVID-19)
Today, I have made the very difficult decision to stop all driving lessons with immediate effect￼.
So far, there has been no direct instruction from the government but the DVSA cancelling all practical tests for 3 months, for all but critical workers, and the continuing advice to observe 'social distancing' means that I can no longer justify putting myself and my students at risk.
I believe that this is the right thing to do as the more we have contact with other people outside of our immediate families the greater the risk to those we love and care about.
I am extremely disappointed that, as yet, the government have not come up with a plan for the self-employed, so this will hit all of us hard financially as well as potentially jeopardising the future of a lot of businesses.
I will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and update all my students as and when necessary. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can carry on with lessons￼.
Please take care of yourselves, keep your distance from others and stay safe.
