Updated: Learner drivers in Wales and England can take private practice on non-essential journeys

Private practice must still be with someone from their own household or support bubble.

Learner drivers in Wales and England can now take private practice on non-essential journeys. Lessons can only be with someone from the learner drivers own household or support bubble.

DVSA said: “For your pupils with a booked theory test, this is a good way for them to put the knowledge and theory they have learned in to practice. This is particularly important for your pupils who learn whilst doing.

“For your pupils who have a practical test booked this is a good way for them to practice their skills before restarting lessons with you.

“DVSA research with learners found those who practice with friends and family are 1.4 times more likely to pass their test compared to those that didn’t have private practice.”

“It’s important that you discuss which areas of driving each of your pupils need to work on during private practice. 

“This will help them cover areas they need to improve on as they prepare for their test. Your pupils can record their private practice using the useful free record which can be downloaded here.”
