Safety Measures Here At Britannia Driving School

At Britannia Driving School please be rest assured our instructors and pupils health and well being is paramount.

Thinking as to when instructors can return to everyday teaching we have been devising ways to keep you all safe.

This will include the instructors not giving lessons if they have any of the corona virus symptoms, instructors asking their pupils if they have been feeling unwell or in contact with any body who is unwell or showing symptoms.

Some instructors are thinking about having a digital thermometer to check themselves and pupils alike.

They will all be carrying hand sanitizer which each pupil will be asked to put on just before they enter the car, Before and after each pupil the car will be cleaned with antibacterial wipes, handles, steering wheel, mirror, gearstick, seatbelt etc.

We are asking that the pupils wash their hands immediately prior to the lesson commencing.

When we return to the office we will still be social distancing so ask that if at all avoidable to contact us by telephone or email, we will be sanitizing everything in the office and the two meter rule will be in place, also only allowing one person at a time in the office.

We will of course be thinking of other ways we can all keep ourselves in the office, our instructors and of course our pupils.

Like everyone in the country we have been following the Downing Street Briefings for rules to abide by when we return to work and of course all of the above is subject to any changes that the Government make, The Dvsa (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency) and the DIA (Diving Instructors Association) have both been a great help to us and our instructors during the last 7 weeks. Boris Johnson our Prime minister will be making an announcement on Sunday 10th May, Britannia Driving school will be taking information from that briefing.

Please check back for any new news here on our website or on our Facebook page, For the past 7 weeks our fantastic office staff have been remotely working from home, rest assured we are still here for you.
