To help you prepare for the phased restart of driver and rider testing and training, we’ve published new guidance on GOV.UK.

The guidance explains:
• how you should work safely during coronavirus
• what support is available for businesses
• the timescales for restarting services in England, Scotland and Wales

Plastic screens fitted in cars

Examiners will not conduct driving tests in cars that have a screen fitted between the driver and front passenger.

This is because these screens:

• can restrict the candidates vision of the road
• may prevent a quick exit from the vehicle in an emergency
• prevent an instructor or examiner taking action in the event of an emergency, for example by using the steering wheel
• may cause injury in a crash if the air bags or other restraint systems are deployed

This does not apply to buses and other similar vehicles where screens are routinely fitted as part of normal operations.
