6 MUST'S for lessons

  1. You must not attend a lesson if you have any known symptoms relating to COVID 19. This can be as small as the sniffles to a slight cough. If you attend the lesson and fail to advise on any symptoms you may be charged for the full cost. 

  2. You must Wash hands for 20 seconds before entering the vehicle. 

  3. You must use hand sanitizer after you enter the car, even if it’s on top of your own gloves that you bring to the lesson. 

  4. You must wear protective gloves and face masks during the lesson, both of which can be supplied during the lesson. Unless you bring your own every lesson, a monthly PPE subscription will be required at the cost of £10 which covers 5 pairs of gloves & 5 masks per month, which is 50p per item. 

  5. You must be willing for your temperature to be read before entering/starting the lesson. 

  6. You must inform and not attend lessons If you’re in contact with any person who is in self-isolation or has COVID-19 symptoms.

Car etiquettes

  • No shaking hand

  • Cover your mouth with your arm the best you can when coughing. We appreciate this can be difficult when driving. 

  • Windows will remain open fully or to some partial degree. This will help with ventilation throughout the lesson.

  • Short breaks can be taken to help reduce the level of contact. 

  • If any physical contact has been taken place due to any reason then hand sanitizers should be used soon after if and when appropriate 

PPE subscription Monthly 

We encourage students to bring their own PPE, If they do not they would be required to subscribe to a PPE subscription that costs £10. This covers 5 pairs of gloves & 5 masks per month, which is 50p per item. The charge for PPE is not sold for profit but rather to cover the cost for lessons. Car cleaning will be conducted before and after lessons with antibacterial products. It can be difficult for your instructor to teach while wearing a mask as giving prompt and clear communication is required at all times. Due to this, your instructor reverses the right to not wear a mask. All instructors are advised to not conduct any lessons if any student displays any symptoms or has had contact with a person who has symptoms. If any students have concerns wearing PPE they must talk to their instructor prior to their lesson.
