MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC DRIVING LESSONS

NHS Offers

KEY WORKER? FRONTLINE NHS? CARER? WANT DRIVING LESSONS? WANT AN EMERGENCY DRIVING TEST DURING SHUTDOWN CAUSED BY THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC?

We can help.

Driving tests are currently suspended (from 20th March 2020) due to coronavirus. However, you can apply for an emergency test if you're a critical worker. At LeaP 2 Drive we have already arranged driving tests for Key Workers and delivered driving lessons during this period of shutdown; we have instructors registered with the Key Workers Trainer Register, qualified and permitted to deliver those lessons and attend your driving test with you. Our instructors have been specially trained to deliver lessons in a safe, protected environment, have passed an examination about delivering lessons to Key Workers at this time and been included on a special register approved by the DVSA and chief officers of police called the Key Worker Trainer Register. ADI's entered on the Key Workers Trainer Register are able to deliver driving lessons to NHS front line staff, police & fire officers. Our instructors wear protective clothing, as shown and we will advise you on the appropriate protective clothing you will need to wear and the special rules that currently apply to those taking tests. We can arrange to deliver driving lessons to doctors, nurses, other NHS front line staff and Carers; and we can assist you in applying for your emergency driving test. 

We can assist you in a manual or automatic car in York, Malton, Bridlington, Scarborough, Filey, Pickering & surrounding areas. 

WE APPRECIATE YOU & WHAT YOU'RE DOING

DVSA has written to regional police forces advising them of their official guidance in the training and testing of Key Workers at this time. The CEO of the DVSA has issued a statement to ADI's "I'm aware that some of the people whose work is critical to the coronavirus response will need to finish their driving lessons and be able to use a vehicle for their test. I'm very grateful to those of you (ADI's) who are able to continue providing (driving) lessons for those who need them."

Police forces nationwide, alongside traffic enforcement officers on the Strategic Road Network have also been made aware of the Key Workers Training Register and the need for some driver trainers to be conducting on road training at this time.

LeaP 2 Drive has been at the very front in assisting Key Workers to learn to drive during this pandemic.

To be entered onto the Key Worker Trainer Register is not a mandatory requirement for ADI's. ADI's are able to deliver lessons to critical workers without being on the register. However, if an ADI is on the register it confirms they have received online training in how to conduct driving lessons during the coronavirus pandemic and passed an online examination where the pass mark is 80%. There is an added advantage that the register can be checked by police & NHS staff to see which ADI's are registered and have received Key Worker training in conducting driving lessons at this time. The register has been set up by the Driving Instructors Association (DIA), the largest professional body of the UK's DVSA approved driving instructors. The DIA recommends any ADI's delivering driving lessons to key workers join the register, which is approved by other professional bodies within the 'learning to drive' profession. The register was put together by the DIA with the knowledge and support of the DVSA and chief police officers.
