DVSA have updated their Standard Operating Procedures Regarding Plastic screens fitted in vehicles

Examiners will not conduct driving tests in vehicles 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

NASP will also update their guidelines accordingly
