Dear Students and Parents,
I have today received an email from the DVSA regarding the Coronavirus, and students who are looking to take their test in the coming months. If your child is showing any symptoms, then please read on below.
MESSAGE TO ALL DRIVING INSTRUCTORS (ADIs)
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.
Please do not bring your pupil to their test if you or your pupil feels unwell.
We are emailing anyone with a test booked in the next week to let them know what they need to do if they feel unwell.
If you think you might have coronavirus, please follow the latest NHS advice if you think you might have coronavirus. The symptoms of coronavirus are:
a high temperature
shortness of breath
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need NHS medical help and advises you what to do. If there's a chance you could have coronavirus, you might be asked to stay away from other people (self-isolate).
If you or your pupil need to cancel or rearrange a test, we will rebook your pupil's test free of charge if it has to be cancelled or changed because of coronavirus. This includes if it’s done at short notice (within 3 clear working days of the test).
Your pupil will need call us to cancel or change on 0300 200 1122 (Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm).
You cannot cancel or change your test online, if it's because of coronavirus.
