Our COVID-19 Policy


Driving 2ition is committed to creating a safe and hygienic learning environment for both our clients & trainers.

We have therefore formed a coherent policy based on the government Covid-19 guidance for businesses.

Please read the following COVID-19 policy to understand how we will provide this safe environment, and what our clients can expect on each of their training sessions.


If you display any symptoms of Covid-19 or the Omicron variant, then you must inform us or your trainer before your lesson so the lesson can be rescheduled – our usual terms of 24 hour cancellation notice will not apply.

We recommend our clients carry out a Lateral Flow Test at least twice a week. If you test positive we advise you to take a PCR test. Both test must be negative to continue your lessons. 

The guidance states:

If you've tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) you usually have to self-isolate for 10 full days. You may be able to leave self-isolation after 5 full days if certain conditions are met. Read more about when to self-isolate and what to do.

If you have been in close contact with or live with anyone who has Covid-19 or has been displaying signs then you should not attend your driving lesson –  our usual terms of 24 hour cancellation notice will not apply


The guidance states:

you may have to self-isolate for 10 full days.

You might need to self-isolate for longer if you get symptoms while self-isolating or your symptoms do not go away.

You will not need to self-isolate in certain situations. Read more about when to self-isolate and what to do.

Each of us will need to consider:

  • If we have any symptoms

  • If we fall into higher risk groups

  • If we have a relative or partner we are living with who is also moderate or high risk


The main symptoms of COVID 19 described by the government are (but not exclusively):

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

  • a loss of taste or smell

Driving Lesson Guidance

  1. Your trainer will text you prior to your lesson to ensure you do not have symptoms and have not been in contact with anyone displaying symptoms – the lessons will not go ahead if either of you has any symptoms –  our usual terms of 24 hour cancellation notice will not apply.

  2. All vehicle touch-points will be sanitised thoroughly prior to your lesson.

  3. Your trainer will text you on their arrival, please then wash your hands with soapy water for at least 20 seconds prior to you lesson.

  4. Wait outside the vehicle for your trainer to take your temperature with our non contact thermometer and provide hand sanitiser before entering - your trainer will provide hand sanitiser for use whilst on your lesson or you can bring your own.

  5. Please wear clothing that is suitable and covers as much of you as possible, short sleeves are now acceptable.

  6. Although you no longer need to wear a face covering, you should consider wearing one in enclosed spaces, and this is at the discretion of our trainers so you may still be required to wear them in the training vehicles, unless you are exempt from wearing a face covering. Our trainers will respect your request for them to wear a face covering should you wish them to wear one. If you do not have a face covering we can provide one at a cost price of £1.00 each. Disposable face-masks can be used but must be new/clean; washable face-masks must be freshly cleaned. 

  7. Your trainer will have disposable gloves and seat covers available for you to use FREE of charge, these are non compulsory but are available for your peace of mind should you wish to use them, these must be removed and disposed of by you at the end of your lesson.

  8. Avoid unnecessary contact between you and your trainer - this includes handshakes.

  9. Vehicle windows will be open to ensure ventilation and the fan set to bring air in from outside the vehicle and not circulate air.

  10. If you cough or sneeze into your hand you must stop the vehicle when safe to do so to enable you to sanitise your hands and the vehicles controls - always try to cough or sneeze into your sleeve or a tissue or try to clear your throat with your mouth closed.

  11. When speaking please look forward and not directly at your trainer, they will do the same.

  12. Once the lesson has ended take with you any PPE you have used and ensure you wash your hands thoroughly after getting home.


Other basic rules to avoid the spread of Covid-19 and other germs:

  • Wash your hands after using the toilet and before eating.

  • If you cough/sneeze into your hands sanitise immediately when it is safe to do so (or follow the 20-second hand-washing rule if you are at home).

  • Cough/sneeze into your sleeve, preferably into your elbow. If you use a tissue, discard it properly and clean/sanitise your hands immediately.

  • Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands to prevent you from getting infected.
