An Update on DVSA Services

Government has announced additional restrictions across Great Britain to help limit the spread of coronavirus.

You can read the respective government’s guidance on the restrictions that are being put in place in England, Scotland and Wales.

DVSA services
Currently the new restrictions do not affect our driver and rider theory and practical test services in England and Wales. This means we can continue to provide these services as normal.

We will keep the situation under review and let you know if anything changes.

Our priority is to keep staff and customers safe and we will continue to follow the Government’s health guidance for driver and rider practical and theory tests to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Tests in Scotland
The Scottish First Minister has advised against car-sharing with people outside your own household.

Whilst there is a clear expectation that this advice does not apply to car practical driving tests and lessons, we have sought clarification from Transport Scotland and will update you as soon as possible.

Detailed guidance from representative organisations
Representative organisations have published detailed guidance about working safely during coronavirus.

You should check the detailed guidance for the type of training you provide:
car driving instructors– from the National Associations Strategic Partnership (NASP)
motorcycle trainers– from MCIA Ride and the Driving Instructors Association
vocational trainers (PDF, 165KB)- from the National Vocational Driving Instructors Register

The NJC continues to be dedicated to help you in these challenging times and we hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.
