DVSA Announcement – Private Practice Is Allowed In Lockdown 3.0 After All!

admin January 12, 2021

I thought I would hop on here, and update you on the new announcement made by the DVSA. Only last week they stated that you wouldn’t be allowed to do private practice with loved ones, even if it’s on an essential journey. It appears there has been a u-turn! So Why Has The DVSA Changed Their Minds? Well – this is anyone’s guess. This is possibly due to the fact that as learners aren’t allowed to have driving lessons, if they take away private practice also, this would inhibit their driving. Which in-turn doesn’t do anything for the long-term driving […]

When is the driver trainer industry going to be back?

admin January 6, 2021

So, it has emerged today that the end of March may be a realistic time frame to when the current national lockdown may starts to be eased as reported here by The Independent. However, restrictions may still be in place for a while, as the government will ease the restrictions as opposed to just opening up the economy as reported by Ske News. You can read the article here. What will happen to the driver trainer industry? This of course is subject to opinion and speculation at the moment. But, if we go by last year’s response – the sector […]

admin January 5, 2021

My name is Sotiris N Charalambous. Was born in Islington London not so long ago, (😀), mother English and father Cypriot. I’ve been a driving instructor for 6-7 years now and to tell you the truth, it’s the best job in the world! I’ve lost count on how many have passed their test, but the first one was very special and I’m still in contact with that pupil. Only last week we had a chat and he will show me his driving skills. This is what he text me. ◦       Hey Soto, not bad thanks, still have my […]

End Of A Crazy Year!

admin December 29, 2020

Wow-what a year. This year has been one hell of a year. There are so many reflections to mull over. I for one am flabbergasted, I don’t know about you! Of course, the podcast has taken a slight back seat this year due to the pandemic. Meeting up with Soto is really difficult due to the distancing and of course bubble saga. We all need to do our bit – but we are hopeful that things can get back to normal in the spring where we will of course resume our weekly podcast show. Until then – we will be […]
