X-tra Safe Driving School has put into place appropriate precautionary measures in line with the latest guidance from Public Heath England to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to keep you and everyone safe. We will do the following:
1- Myself and my student will have no symptoms of Covid-19 for the last 7 days prior to the lesson and/or not been in contact with someone who had symptoms within the last 14 days. There will be no charge for short notice cancellations but I expect you to contact me prior to travelling to pick you up in order to cancel.
2- I will meet you outside the car and I will provide alcohol based hand sanitiser and a new mask for you, unless you want to use your own mask.
3- Myself and my student will agree to wash our hands for at least 20 seconds just before the lesson or sanitise our hands with alcohol based hand sanitiser. If we need to stop for a toilet break, we will repeat the washing procedure. Alcohol based hand sanitiser will be provided.
4- Myself and my student will agree to wear a mouth and nose mask provided free of charge (you can provide your own mask if you wish to do so). Please do not use a mask with vents/valves in. Single use masks should be disposed of after the lesson by the student in the bag provided by me. If you provide your own cloth mask, please wash it at 60 degrees or above before using it again for your next lesson.
5- I will ensure that my car is regularly cleaned before and after each driving lesson/driving test. Before you enter the car, I will have wiped over the contact points: car key, key barrel, door handles (inside and out), seat belt, seat belt fastener, seat belt height adjuster, main mirror (middle), window controls, seat adjusters, steering wheel, steering wheel height adjuster, parking brake, gear lever, indicator, wiper stalks and light controls, seat adjustment leavers, etc. - with disinfectant and antibacterial wipes.
6- There will be no sharing of pens or learning aids. Any signatures required will be requested by email or text confirmation. For students younger than 18 years old on the day of the lesson, a parental/guardian signature of approval should be obtained.
7- I advise you to wear long sleeved trousers and tops in order to avoid (as much as possible) skin contact with parts inside of the car and to wash the garments as soon as you return home. Please do not bring any bags/purse with you in the car. A little plastic bag for your keys and mobile phone will be provided.
8- I will keep a window open for ventilation whenever possible.
9- Any litter created during the lesson will be bagged and disposed of immediately.
10- Students over 18 years old /Parents/Guardians will agree that any training is undertaken at their own risk and should they become unwell after their lesson, they have no claim against me or X-tra Safe Driving School.
