coronovirus epidemic

Coronavirus

Morning all students.

This is really a message I don't want to type, but it is with great regret that due the ongoing Coronavirus situation that Driving Lessons this week will be postponed.

I will be monitoring the situation weekly, and hope to get you all back behind the wheel ASAP.

Those with Theory or Practical test bookings are currently being reviewed by the DVSA. You should receive an email in due course as things smoothen out. As usual, any worries feel free to give me a call.

I will be ringing everyone individually to Rebook lessons, so if I miss your call I'll ring you as soon as I can!

Most importantly, stay safe over this next week. Wash your hands and keep social distancing, and hopefully normal service will resume in next to no time.

Thank you for your understanding and I'll see you all again soon to get those tests passed

coronovirus epidemic

Coronavirus

Myself and the team behind Mike's Driving Lessons would like to say a huge 'thank you' to all of our students, present and future that are following the guidelines about staying safe during this difficult time.

As you can imagine this is a very worrying time for the self-employed and we are incredibly grateful for all your support at this time by continuing with your lessons. Thank you.

We know there will be a Massive demand for Lessons and Driving Tests once the coronavirus outbreak is over, so by continuing with your lessons now it will mean that you will be able to book the earliest possible driving tests when things return to normal and be driving much sooner compared to delaying your lessons and being hit with even more test waiting times.

Our cars are probably the cleanest place you can be right now, being meticulously sprayed over between each lesson.

I will give you as much notice as possible if I need to self isolate for any reason to minimise disruption to your learning.

For any of our students who are showing symptoms, or have come into contact with someone who has contracted the virus or has tested positive for the virus, then please let me know as soon as possible.

Although we would ask you to let us know as early as possible if you need to cancel, there will be no charge for cancelling your lessons at short notice because of the virus.

With that in mind, at this time, your reliability is hugely appreciated by all of us. If you can avoid cancelling your lessons for any other reason, then it would be very much appreciated.

If you have any concerns or questions about your lessons or test, please contact me directly and I'll be more than happy to help.

We hope you all stay safe and let’s hope life returns to normal very soon.

Thank you so much again for your continuing support
Let's hit the road!

coronovirus epidemic

Morning again Drivers!
Another update regarding the ongoing situation with #Coronavirus

All lessons are On as usual, however Driving Tests have been cancelled Thursday 19th and Friday 20th.
Instructors will hopefully get an update on Friday with regards to tests from Monday 23rd.

This will understandably lead to disruption if you have a test booked.
Check your emails (and your spam folder!) for any emails from DVSA, and if your test has been rescheduelled call or text me ASAP.

We've all handled more chaos than this before, keep smiling and normal service will be back soon

coronovirus epidemic

Morning all customers

Despite the ongoing #Coronavirus situation, lessons are all ON as normal, until otherwise advised.
Please be reassured in the fact that my car is sanitised after every lesson to minimise any potential germs in the car.

If possible, wash your hands before your lesson, and if needed feel free to ask me for some alcohol hand gel or antibacterial wipes for your hands :)

As long as everybody takes precautions it'll be normal service as usual in next to no time.

Enjoy escaping the doom and gloom for two hours!

See you all out there!

Mike

Recommendation - Theory Test Masterclass

I am a local driving instructor and one of my pupils has just finished the theory course with Mike and Shane. She has thoroughly enjoyed the whole course and has come away so much more confident with her theory and now actually can't wait to go and take the test! I would highly recommend this to any learners, it's worth every penny and more!

So what are you waiting for. Remember you cannot book your driving test until you have passed your Theory and H.P. test. E-Mail us now for further details.
