New alert levels introduced by the Welsh Government

The Welsh Government has updated their guidance on the new alert level 4 in Wales to control the spread of coronavirus in the country.

From 20 December all areas of Wales will be put into alert level 4 until the Welsh Government carries out its next formal review.

You can read more about the measures on the Welsh Government’s website.

Driving lessons

The Welsh Government has decided that driving lessons should not take place in Wales from 20 December until the restrictions are lifted. You should not travel out of Wales to give driving lessons or to take a pupil for a test.

Driving tests

The Welsh Government has also decided that all car driving tests will be suspended in Wales from 20 December until the restrictions are lifted. This includes ADI part 2 and 3 tests and standards checks.

We’ll email candidates who are affected by this to let them know we will reschedule their test.

If you have booked a test for any of your pupils you will receive an email to let you know it will be rescheduled to a new time and date. You will need to contact your pupil to let them know.

We’ll then send you an email with the new time and date as soon as possible; please ask your pupils to be patient.

If the new time and date isn’t suitable for you or your pupil, you can choose a different time and date on GOV.UK. You will need your pupil’s driving licence number to do this. Your pupil does not need to pay again to do this.

Theory tests

All theory tests will be suspended in Wales from 20 December.

We will email anyone who has booked a test and is affected by this to let them know the theory test is on hold and that they will need to reschedule it by visiting https://www.gov.uk/change-theory-test. This is in line with the Welsh Government guidance.

If you booked your pupil’s theory test you will need to log into the booking system and rearrange their test for a new date and time.
