Driving lessons to resume in England and Wales on 12 April



https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-56661235

Driving lessons can restart in England and Wales on 12 April, the transport secretary has confirmed. Grant Shapps said driving tests will resume 10 days later on 22 April.

Covid safety measures include that learners and instructors should wear face coverings in lessons and tests, unless there is a good reason for them not to, the DVSA says.

People doing a test in their own car should clean it beforehand, wiping down the dashboard and car controls.

At least one window on each side of the car must be open *.

My grandson will be pleased at this news as he has had his driving test cancelled twice now.

That's great news! I am sure he is thrilled!

(I just can'r wrap my head around the fact that you could possibly have a grandson old enough to drive. A fountain of youth have you, Art! )

Surfermom, Thank You for your uplifting and lovely words... but l dare not tell you that he has an older brother with a baby.... Eeeeeek

Actually, l donít want him to pass his driving test. He has worked, doing two jobs, to save enough to buy a good car. At 19, l feel he might be a bit young and might speed a bit.
My daughter says, the insurance company make them have some sort of device in the car to monitor their speed but l still worry.

Ok, now you are just cheating the gods, Artangel ! Good for you!

It sounds like you have a young and vibrant family. I hope they bring you more joy than worries!
