Mainland Scotland to stay in lockdown until at least 31 January

Driving lessons and tests are suspended during the lockdown.

Lockdown restrictions in mainland Scotland will remain in place until at least 31 January. Scottish residents should stay at home except for essential reasons.

Some of the Scottish islands will remain at protection Level 3. 

Driving lessons must not take place in mainland Scotland while the restrictions are in place. You must not travel out of mainland Scotland to give driving lessons. If you live on an island not in temporary lockdown you can continue to provide lessons to any of your pupils as long as they do not live in an area in lockdown.

All car driving tests are suspended in mainland Scotland while the restrictions are in place. This includes ADI part 2 and 3 tests and standards checks.

As a result of the temporary lockdown travel restrictions examiners are unable to travel to other areas in lower levels to take driving tests. DVSA is suspending all tests booked in protection level 3, where the examiner is coming from mainland Scotland to deliver the test, until the travel restrictions are lifted.

Private practice is only permitted with someone in your household or support bubble during an essential journey.
