Important message for new pupils:

Our diary for driving lessons is currently full to bursting point!
We also have a long list of pupils on a waiting list, ready for when current pupils finally get a date from DVSA for their practical test.

Unfortunately, I am for the meantime unable to accommodate any new learners.
If you or a loved one are turning 17 later this year, it is best to book early and avoid disappointment.
The backlog of tests could stretch to August or even September, so book early to ensure your slot later this year.

Thanks for your understanding

103 days since we last did on-road training, let's get out there!

I will be following all guidelines similar to last lockdowns regarding masks, sanitising between lessons etc.
I will also be doing lateral flow tests throughout the week to ensure the safety of my pupils and their families.

Let's make 2021 the year we can actually get that independence

Theory tests affected by Lockdown 3 will need to be rebooked - the booking system will let you choose a date and time and you will not need to pay again.

The booking system will already show a placeholder date and time: this is NOT when your test is, and you will have to change it yourself in order to confirm the rebooking.

reschedule your theory test

I'm pleased to confirm a provisional date of 12th April for lessons to start again

I will be in touch closer to the time to confirm lesson slots again as college or work schedules will probably have changed since December 2020.

Undoubtedly, DVSA will be on the back foot rescheduling tests in the meantime. Keep your eyes peeled on any emails from them, and let me know if you get a new date so that I can reserve that aside in my diary.

These 7 weeks will feel like a lifetime to us!
I can't wait to see you again and get back behind the wheel.
In the meantime, stay safe and if there's any way I can help feel free to fire your questions to me.
