IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 OR HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH ANYONE WHO IS, PLEASE CANCEL YOUR LESSON AND SELF-ISOLATE FOR 14 DAYS. I will not charge for late cancellations for this reason.

PPE
All contact points in the car will be fully anti-bac wiped and disinfected before and after every lesson.
You will be asked to fit a cover over the driver’s seat before you get in.
Masks will need to be worn for the duration of the lesson.
You will be asked to use hand sanitiser at the start of the lesson.
Nitrile gloves will be available if you wish to wear them.

Arrival
I will now not knock on your door so please look out for me to arrive. If I’m somewhere you wouldn’t see me, I’ll text and let you know where I am.
I will arrive a few minutes before your lesson time. This will give me the opportunity to anti-bac wipe the car. Please don’t come out until your agreed lesson time.
Please fully WASH YOUR HANDS for at least 20 seconds before coming to your lesson.

New Starters
I will not check your licence at the start of the first lesson. Instead I will be doing an online check which I will contact you directly about.

Briefings/Summary
Conversations at the start/end of the lesson will now be held outside of the car to minimise the time spent inside.

Lesson Duration
All lessons will be 1 hour for the time being, partly to minimise the time spent in the car but also to give me time to disinfect between lessons.
Please ensure legs are fully covered – no shorts
Windows will be kept open for ventilation
You will be asked to put a seat cover over the seat. You may also wish to bring a towel to sit on as these can get a bit hot and sweaty. You will also be asked to take the seat cover with you to dispose of.
You will be asked to use hand sanitiser once in the car.

End of Lesson
You will be asked to anti-bac wipe all contact points in the car before exiting. Please allow a little bit of extra time for this at the end of your lesson.

Payment
I will no longer accept cash in the car. Payment will need to be made in advance by bank transfer. You can also take advantage of a discount for block bookings of 10 hours. Let me know if you’re interested.


Please be aware that I am trying to juggle all levels of drivers, right through from new starters to pupils who were expected to have taken their tests by now. This means that I will need to prioritise people accordingly and while I will endeavour to ensure everyone gets at least one lesson a week, this may not always be possible. Your patience and understanding will be much appreciated!
