What about Covid-19 and PPE?

We require that young drivers wear clothing which covers the full length of arms and legs and that footwear is the closed style i.e. not open style sandals.
We encourage you to make responsible decisions about other family members that may wish to attend as spectators, please follow current official recommendations about individuals that may be more at risk of Covid-19.

You will be required to ‘sign on’ for your young driver and once this is complete you can choose to leave the site if you wish; please speak to your host for local information.
I have a question about the specific needs of my young driver.
We are always happy to make a dream come true, please contact us to discuss in more detail.
Can I sit in the car with my young driver?
Unfortunately, this is not possible at the present time.
My young driver could be nervous, what if he/she refuses to do it?
Some young drivers have been very nervous, however through careful rapport building and agreement of boundaries, we have never had a refusal to participate. In the unlikely event that does happen, your booking may be transferred to a later date or another driver.
What time do we get there?

Is there a minimum driver height?
To drive independently and comfortably the driver should be a minimum height of 4’10’’. However, we allow people under this height to drive, the instructor and young driver will discuss and agree a method of team work to ensure that as much learning as possible takes place, whilst safe control of the vehicle is maintained at all times.
What about insurance?
We are fully insured for public indemnity and professional liability.
Is there a certificate?
Yes, we provide a certificate of achievement during a de-brief session, where we encourage the young driver to fully appreciate what he/she has achieved.
