Mogg lets the cat out of the bag on training
Leader of the House announces driver and rider training to resume from 4 July in England.
Leader of the House Jacob Rees-Mogg has announced in parliament that all driver and rider training can resume from 4 July.
He was responding to a question from Greg Smith, MP for Buckingham. Mr Rees-Mogg described driving instructors as the “unseen engines of the country” and said:
“From the 4th July I am happy to say that people will be able to take driving lessons on a motorcycle or in a car, lorry or bus and there will be a phased approach to resuming practical testing so learners have the opportunity to practice before taking a test.”
NASP will be briefed fully later today on plans to resume testing and a full announcement from DVSA is expected imminently.
The DVA in Northern Ireland has announced a phased return for driving tests and MOTs. We will update you with the position in Wales and Scotland as soon as the information is available.
