Automatic Driving Lessons Leeds - Automatic Driving Schools Leeds - Plastic Screens
With no guidance from the DVSA about how driving lessons should be conducted, after the coronavirus pandemic, many driving instructors have been left confused.
Many have taken sensible measures such as the use of PPE and extra sanitation of the vehicle. Some have taken it a little further and have opted for plastic screens within the vehicle.
The DVSA have now published the following guidance on the use of plastic screens in the car during a driving test:
"Plastic screens fitted in cars
Examiners will not conduct driving tests in cars that have a screen fitted between the driver and front passenger.
This is because these screens:
can restrict the candidates vision of the road
may prevent a quick exit from the vehicle in an emergency
prevent an instructor or examiner taking action in the event of an emergency, for example by using the steering wheel
may cause injury in a crash if the air bags or other restraint systems are deployed
This does not apply to buses and other similar vehicles where screens are routinely fitted as part of normal operations."
Stay safe everyone!
