Two weeks have passed since I last posted, but the Government scheme to allow certain instructors to break social distancing rules and teach certain learners has been launched.
I will be taking the required test soon. I'm also finalising videos for the Your Subscription service.
The body (NASP) being guided direct from the UK Government's driving agency (DVSA) has made clearer what's new because of anti-virus restrictions :
Driving test content remains the same. However, not all "key workers" will be necessarily be granted a Critical Worker driving test. At the moment, tests are being offered ONLY to front-line staff in  the NHS and  emergency services. As such, instructors should give lessons ONLY to these people and if they're near test standard. So :
A register of trainers for key workers will soon be available. It will allow instructors (like me) to display a certificate. Police officers, and the public, can then see the training is essential.
Instructors applying to be certified will have to complete a short online course and theory test on safe training protocols. They will also have to show they are training key workers.
