Comment

 

Grant Shapps, Transport Secretary, said:

“Driving lessons and tests are vital in helping people get to work and visit loved ones, and provide the skills for a lifetime of safe driving.

As the country recovers from COVID-19 we can now open-up our services to help get the country moving again and I am very pleased to announce the restart of driving tests and lessons in a COVID-secure way”.

Gareth Llewellyn, DVSA Chief Executive, said:

“It has been vital that lessons and tests only resume when safe to do so and in line with the government’s advice.

We know this has been a tough time for the whole country including learners and driving instructors but I am pleased to announce the restart of lessons and tests in England.

Tests for critical workers have continued during the lockdown and I would like to thank all those instructors and examiners who have continued to work to help deliver tests for those who have done so much to help us during this terrible pandemic”.

 

There has been no date set by the devolved governments in Scotland and Wales but in Northern Island tests will begin again on the 6th of July.
