To safely conduct lessons for students and instructors at Covid-19 Alert Level 1 (22nd September 2020) we are following these protocols:
At Alert Level 1 it is no longer mandatory to wear a Face Mask, however they are being recommended as they provide an extra level of protection in enclosed settings.
If you have signs of being unwell, or have been in contact with someone suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, please reschedule your lesson for 2 weeks-time, or longer if symptoms persist.
Please advise us, prior to your lesson, if you have any of the following conditions: chronic asthma, diabetes, or any immune suppressed conditions.
We would like you to apply your own hand sanitizer before and after the lesson. Your Instructor will hand sanitize between lessons also.
Gloves may be used by your Instructor. You may also want to wear gloves, please provide these yourself.
If you are using your own car for the lesson please ensure all touching surfaces have been wiped down immediately before the instructor gets into your car.
Sorry, we will not be able to shake your hand.
We prefer no passengers in the car during the lesson, unless it is absolutely necessary. Please ask your Instructor prior to the lesson.
Online payments are now preferred, please pay 24 hours prior to the lesson.
For each lesson your Driving Instructor will be:
Going over all the touching surfaces in their vehicle with alcohol/disinfectant wipes before your lesson
Setting the vehicle ventilation system to bring in fresh air, not to recirculate air. This may also include windows being opened. Air vents will be set to forward of the vehicle to produce an air curtain (positive air pressure) between you and the instructor.
Greeting you outside the car to ascertain if you are showing any symptoms of being unwell.
Using the instruction vehicles for lessons only and not private use.
