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

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 experience. Of course, this is aimed at reducing the test fails that will inevitably happen once they are allowed to take their driving test.

With months and months without any form of driving, learners will of course be at a huge disadvantage when it comes to their driving test. And once the booking system does open up – how long will they have to have driving lessons?

This, of course, is NOT ideal – so perhaps, this is why the DVSA has done a u-turn on this topic. Here are the requirements:

  1. Must be part of an essential journey only
  2. The essential journey is a place of education, work or to get essentials, shopping and medicine.
  3. The learner MUST be with someone from their own household

So, if you are learning to drive please make sure you follow the guidelines as set by the DVSA. The police are cracking down on people who are flouting the law.

Please leave your comments below this post, we would love to have your opinion on this!

Until next time,

Take care.
