The Government announced on 29 June that Leicester and surrounding areas are in lockdown following an increase in Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases.

Which areas are affected

Read the government statement on the areas affected and the restrictions that have been put in place pending a review from 18 July.

What this means to you
The local lockdown means that if you live in this area you will not be able to restart driving or riding instruction until after the restrictions are lifted.

We will still open the trainer booker service on the 6 July, but you will not be able to book any tests in test centres located in the areas affected.

We will continue to offer a service for critical workers in these areas. Any existing critical worker tests in these areas will go ahead as planned.

What this means to our services
This means that we will be unable to reopen our theory test centres in the areas affected on 4 July and for the duration of the lockdown.

This means that motorcycle and vocational tests will not be able to restart in the affected areas on 13 July and for the duration of the lockdown.

We will continue to monitor this situation and will let you know when testing and training can resume
