Driving lessons and tests: Welsh Government announcement on alert level 4

The Welsh Government has announced that everyone in Wales must stay at home to save lives and that alert level 4 coronavirus restrictions in Wales will remain in place in until at least the next formal review on 29 January 2021.

You can read more about the measures on GOV.Wales
Driving lessons
Driving lessons must not take place in alert level 4.
You must not travel out of an alert level 4 area to give driving lessons.
Driving tests
All car driving tests are suspended in alert level 4. This includes ADI part 2 and 3 tests and standards checks.

We’ll email candidates 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 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 is not 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 are suspended in alert level 4.
We will email anyone who has booked a test and is affected by this to let them know their theory test is on hold and they need to reschedule it at https://www.gov.uk/change-theory-test.
If you booked your pupil’s theory test, you will need to use the booking system to rearrange their test for a new date and time.

Yours sincerely

Peter J Harvey MBE
National Chairman
