KWIK PASS Driver Training
Our Managing Director's Guidance-Preventing the spread
I want to update you as the Managing Director on what KWIK PASS is doing to help slow the spread of the COVID-19, the guidance that the instructors and our customers can follow in these testing and challenging times.
As you know, we had suspended driving lessons for the last 3 months to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19. We were continuing to provide emergency tests for those whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response.
As you can appreciate we know that every day in the United Kingdom, nearly 2,000 people turn 17. While the UK has been in lockdown, 4,500 driving tests have had to be put on hold on a daily basis. That’s a lot of lessons to get through and a lot of new learners wanting to take driving lessons.
KWIK PASS has restarted lessons from Saturday 04 July, we will be prioritising the allocation of space in our instructors’ diaries to those who have pre-paid for lessons in advance, there is a big backlog.
On 25th June 2020, the government announced that driving lessons can FULLY RESUME for anyone from Saturday 4th July 2020 onwards. We still have a duty of care to follow the guidelines issued by the government to stop the spread of COVID19. Our instructors will follow guidelines and any pupils learning to drive with us will be expected to do the same.
If you are unsure of the guidelines, please follow the links below:
It may help if I explain that not all driving examiners or instructors are able to provide this service because those vulnerable from COVID-19 need to stay at home, so test availability or driving lessons maybe limited, please do contact us and we can then look at how to plan your lessons so you are test ready.
The instructor will contact you ahead of each lesson to establish:
- if you have any symptoms.
- if anyone you know, or have been in contact with, is showing symptoms.
- if anyone you have been in contact with, has traveled from a high-risk, infectious region.
- confirm that you have not had multiple contact with individuals not from your own household.
We have put in place appropriate precautionary measures in line with the latest guidance Public Heath England to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to keep you, and everyone safe. The instructor will ask you:
- To wash your hands or use sanitiser gel just prior to getting into the car.
- To cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing – so a sleeve or tissue, not their hands.
- Keep a window open for ventilation.
- Strongly recommend you wear a mask or face covering to prevent spread of any infection, unless you have a good reason not to. This includes if:
- have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability that means you cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering
- putting on, wearing or removing a face covering would cause you severe distress
- you need to remove it during training to avoid harm or injury or the risk of harm or injury to yourself or other
- Avoid greeting you at your door, and will prearrange to meet by the vehicle.
The instructor will ensure the vehicle is regularly cleaned before and after each training session/driving test. So before you enter the car the instructor will have wiped over the following contact points:
Car key, key barrel, stop/start button, door handles (inside and out), seat belt/fastener/buckle, seat belt height adjuster, mirrors (front/rear), windows, window controls, front seats, seat adjusters, steering wheel, steering wheel height adjuster, parking brake, gear lever, indicator, wiper stalks, glove compartments, door pockets, sat nav, light controls and any other ancillary controls with a disinfectant mixed with antibacterial soap at the beginning and end of each training session.
This to reassure you that we are taking all the necessary steps to keep everyone safe, as guidance changes this will be reviewed. The Government and NHS have provided some tips and advice on how we can keep on top of our mental wellbeing and cope during this time. Take a look at the full list of wellbeing advice from the Government and share these with friends and family to look after yourself and those you care about.
