Bill Plant Driving School have postponed all driving lessons and driving instructor training due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The driving school have also said it's working on a financial package for its self-employed driving instructors.

A spokesperson at Bill Plant Driving School said: “We have taken the difficult decision to postpone all driving lessons and training with the exception of teaching key workers where necessary.

“This is not a decision we are taking lightly, but one made with the health and wellbeing of all our pupils, instructors, trainers and staff in mind.

“For those currently talking driving lessons with Bill Plant Driving School, your local driving instructor will be in touch shortly to postpone your next lesson and will contact you again in the future to recommence.

“We are still taking learn to drive and driving instructor training enquiries via billplant.co.uk and 0330 555 2254 and we will simply schedule these to commence when it is safe for us to do so.

“Thank you to our fantastic driving Instructors for their continued support during this incredibly challenging time.

“From everyone at Bill Plant Driving School, thank you for your on-going support and stay safe.”

The news follows the announcement made by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) that driving tests in England, Scotland and Wales have been suspended for three-months from Saturday (March 21).

The DVSA have put plans in place to provide emergency driving tests for critical workers if work is critical to the COVID-19 response or for people that work in a critical sector.
