COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOL
Under current government guidelines only essential workers that have a confirmed driving test date are allowed to take driving lessons in order to prepare for the driving test.
From May 10th only essential workers will be allowed resume EDT lessons.
By proceeding with the process of booking and taking driving lessons with Excel School Of Motoring it will be understood and accepted that you comply with the safety protocols as laid out below and that you are classed as an essential worker.

Mask/face covering, MUST be worn at every driving lesson whether using the driving school vehicle or your own vehicle.
Sourcing large quantities of face masks/coverings is proving difficult at this time so the learner driver will need to provide their own face covering.
Hand sanitiser will be made available to the learner driver.
**In the event of PPE not being present or if the learner driver refuses to wear them the driving lesson will not happen.**
The driving school vehicle will be thoroughly cleaned with high alcohol (70%+) sanitiser at the beginning and end of every driving lesson with special care taken with shared touched surfaces such as, steering wheel, gearstick, handbrake, doors, key, etc..
Each driving lesson can not last more than 1 hour.
There will be short breaks throughout each driving lesson during which driver and driving instructor will exit the vehicle.
The vehicle will be well aired between lessons.
There will be no physical contact between the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) and the learner driver.
Only the driving instructor and the learner driver can be in the vehicle. Any person who accompanies the learner driver to their driving lesson will no longer be allowed to sit in the back of the vehicle during the driving lesson.
You must inform us at Excel School Of Motoring if you have travelled abroad in the 14 days prior to your driving lesson.
You must inform us at Excel School Of Motoring if you have been in contact with any person who has travelled abroad in the 14 days prior to your driving lesson.
Please bring the correct lesson fee with you as it will no longer be possible to stop at shops or ATM while on the driving lesson.
Any learner driver displaying signs of illness or who become aware that they may have been in contact with a person infected with Covid-19 will be expected to inform their ADI at the earliest opportunity and cancel any scheduled driving lessons.
We understand that a degree of inconvenience and certain difficulties are presented by some of these measures and appreciate your consideration and assistance. Your efforts will help ensure a safe environment in which to conduct driving lessons for you and your fellow learner drivers.
