Mogg lets cat out of bag on training
Leader of the House Jacob Rees-Mogg has announced in parliament that all driver and rider training in England can resume from 4 July.
He was responding to a question from Greg Smith, MP for Buckingham. Mr Rees-Mogg described driving instructors as the “unseen engines of the country“ and said:
“From the 4th July I am happy to say that people will be able to take driving lessons on a motorcycle or in a car, lorry or bus and there will be a phased approach to resuming practical testing so learners have the opportunity to practise before taking a test.“
An offical announcement from DVSA is expected imminently
