Your pupils must bring and wear a face covering for their practical and theory tests, unless they have a good reason not to.
As the UK government has announced further national restrictions in England, DVSA is pausing its plans to open up waiting rooms in England until after 2 December. DVSA will assess feedback from instructors, customers and examiners from the waiting rooms opened as part of the initial rollout to see how it can safely open up other waiting rooms in Wales.
