Getting you booked in the diary
The world is slowly getting back to normal. But it will take a while. Just a simple back of the envelope calculation shows that the lock-down will have been responsible for a backlog over the UK of about 450,000 driving tests.
It’s not good news for trainee driving instructors either, as it’s likely that their final exams will be pushed back to accommodate normal learner tests.
To those of you who pre-booked under our Bounce Back Offers: a sincere “Thank you”. This has let me plan my business much better, and has genuinely helped the business survive when many other small businesses have been forced to close.
We will be contacting students in three stages.
We will be contacting all pre-booked bounce-back students next week to pencil you in the diary for lessons, estimating a start date of 6th July. As we have said right from the start, this start date is subject to Government approval and the lock-down being eased according to plan.
We will then contact all students who had a test booked but had it rescheduled to due Covid-19. Unfortunately, due to the massive backlog of driving tests, I fully anticipate test dates being cancelled and rebooked again.
Existing students who have not secured their place through the bounce-back scheme, and do not have a test booking, will be contacted very soon. There are a small number of places left on the offer to secure your place… see below … but I’m afraid you’ve missed the early-bird discount.
Only when we have looked after our existing students will we take on new students from the waiting list.
Car showrooms across England have dramatically lowered their prices in a bid to lure buyers after lock-down.
