Monday updates and forthcoming webinar

So, the start of the week, a new month – and lockdown 2…

Just in case anybody missed it – The DVSA sent out the following today – All driver and rider training and tests will be suspended in England from 5 November until 2 December 2020. We will be contacting affected test candidates soon.”

We will be holding a webinar to discuss the current situation on Wednesday 4 November at 7pm.  Please register here.  The panel will consist of Lynne, Matt, Andrew – and a new face, Charles Moffat.  The webinar can also be viewed live on our public Facebook page, and will be recorded and available later.


We will be getting more facts and information coming through from DVSA and will update members as soon as we can.  We don’t yet know if critical workers will be able to have lessons or tests as the wording from DVSA suggests no driver training or testing.  We don’t want to send out inaccurate information so will send out when we have more detail and confirmation.  Meanwhile we are liaising with DVSA for answers to questions that you are sending through to us.


Any candidate who has had a test ‘on hold’ from the first lockdown, and has not re-booked a test by today, will be getting a refund.


Good news on the increase in the support for self-employed going up from 40% to 80%. And you can now claim from 30 November.  Full details here.
