The Scottish First Minister has announced an indicative start date for driving lessons of 26 April. 

DVSA is working closely with the Scottish Government to agree restart dates for theory and practical driving tests. 

The Scottish Government said driving lessons can restart in Scotland on 26 April as long as coronavirus restrictions are eased in Scotland as planned.

Driving lessons must not take place in areas currently in lockdown (level 4).  

ADIs and rider trainers must not travel out of these areas to give driving lessons.

Driving lessons are still permitted in Scottish islands not in lockdown.

All car driving tests remain suspended in areas in lockdown (level 4). This covers mainland Scotland and some islands. This includes ADI part 2 and 3 tests and standards checks.

Because of the current COVID restrictions, there is no mobile emergency worker test service in Scotland.
