Coronavirus (COVID-19): vehicle lessons
Overview

Overview

This guidance provides practical advice for vehicle lessons and should be read alongside information provided by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency which includes guidance on sitting theory and practical tests. This document sets out the Scottish Government’s expectations on the steps that should be taken before and after reopening. This is provided as guidance only and does not amount to legal advice. Businesses/employers may wish to seek their own advice to ensure compliance with all legal requirements.

This guidance is based on the principles set out in coronavirus (COVID-19): a framework for decision making and our long-established commitment to fair work. We have refreshed our Fair Work statement with support from the STUC, CoSLA, the voluntary sector, and business organisations including the Institute of Directors and the Scottish Council for Development and Industry setting out the fair work practices we expect employers to adopt in responding to the current crisis. It should be read in conjunction with our business and physical distancing guidance which still applies.
