Are Intensive Driving Courses Doable In The Pandemic?

admin June 20, 2021

Yes. In short. The answer is yes. Intensive driving courses are doable in the current climate. The ONLY major issue is when you WANT to do an intensive driving course! As the owner of an intensive driving course business, it is very important to be able to plan your course ahead of time.   At the moment, most courses going ahead are pre-lockdown bookings. Pupils who planned their courses last year and have been forced to wait until now. It is really important to be able to plan ahead to secure your training and ensure that you have passed your […]

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 […]
