Driving Lessons Loughborough



The recent announcements from the government have been a clear reminder that COVID-19 is still very present in our lives and that we must all stay focused on limiting the spread as much as possible. I know that safety remains a key priority for all my pupils and I want to reassure you that I will continue to do all I can to keep us all as safe as possible.

Althrough no longer a legal requirement, I have decided to follow the official recommendations to continue to require face masks to be worn during lessons. We are, after all, in close contact, in a confined space for extended periods of time. This requirement will remain in place for the foreseeable future. The official advice from the DVSA is to continue wearing face masks during lessons and it also continues to be a requirement on driving tests.

I have now taken personal responsibility to ensure that I'm Covid free by taking a Covid 19 self test ( Rapid Antigen Test ) twice weekly.

In addition I'm still throughly sanitizing my car immediately before and after each driving lesson or test with  all touch sufaces cleaned. This will include door handles (inside and out), seats, seat adjustment controls, seat belt including buckle and clasp, window and door mirror controls, steering wheel and adjustment controls, indicator and wiper control stalks, gear lever and parking brake, interior mirrors, bonnet catch (internal), bonnet catch (external) and bonnet touch points including bonnet prop, sat nav and all other controls, switches, keys etc that you may come into contact with. All will be cleaned with suitable wipes or sprays that are effective against Covid-19.

In order for you to still receive the full lesson duration that you pay for I will normally arrive a little earlier than usual at the agreed pick up point in order to clean the car before your lesson start time.

If we need to swap seats during the lesson for any reason all touch points will again be wiped down to minimize the risk of Covid-19 and help keep us all safe. 


Please ensure you wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds just before leaving your home and meet me outside the car at your allotted lesson start time, keeping two metres away until I call you over.

I will ask you several questions and may also take your temperature with a non contact forehead thermometer. 

If you are showing any coronavirus symptoms, your lesson will be cancelled with no charge.

Although no longer a legal requirement, the driving school still requires all pupils to wear a face mask during the lesson. This requirement will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Wash your hands again immediately after your lesson. 

Please wear clothing that covers as much of your body as possible, long sleeve shirts, full length trousers etc. Definitely no T-SHIRTS / SHORTS and no OPEN- TOED SHOES.

Any personal possessions that you bring, keys, phone, bags etc will need to be kept in your own pockets or placed in the provided container in the boot of the car, you must not place items in the door pockets etc. Please keep personal belongings to a minimum.

Pass plus & motorway driving lessons must be taken as a minimum of 2 hour sessions regardless of start / finish locations.

Beginners driving lessons, these are suitable for the complete beginner with no previous driving experience.


Part trained driving lessons, if you already have some previous driving experience you don't want to start from scratch again so this course will start with an initial assessment to find your current level and continue from there.


Confidence building driving lessons, this course is suitable for the full licence holder that has maybe not driven for a few years and needs help to build up their confidence again.


Test rescue driving lessons, just failed your driving test? this course is for you, it will focus on the items that resulted in you failing your previous test and help you to put things right ready for your next test. The driving test is not that hard to pass and with good quality training you will be able to pass. Lesson one is an assessment of your driving which turns into your first corrective driving lesson. At the end of the first training session you will have a plan to complete your training and be a confident, prepared driver.


Pass plus driving lessons, congratulations you've passed your driving test. Be honest, how many different types of road and weather conditions have you driven in? Pass plus will take you through driving in town, on rural roads, in all weathers, on dual carriageways, on motorways and driving in the dark.
