Coronavirus 3rd November 2020

We have been advised by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency that all driver and rider training and tests will be suspended in England from 5th November 2020 to 2nd December 2020.  They will be contacting any affected test candidates soon. 


Take care and stay safe.

24th June 2020




Further to the government’s statement yesterday (23rd June) it still unclear when we can legally return to teaching, although we can teach key workers.  We are currently waiting for clarity from the DVSA (our Governing body) as to our next steps. We need their approval because to teach outside of the current parameters could result in a fine for the instructor, or potentially, being removed from the register of instructors   


Whilst, we are not saying that we shall not be re-starting on 4th July simply that we do not yet know whether we shall be allowed to do so and will advise you of the outcome as soon as we hear, either by telephone or social media. 


Please be assured, we have done all we can to be ready for our return and we look forward to seeing you as soon as it is safe to do so, as safety for our instructors and pupils is paramount.


If you are a key worker and would like to learn to drive, we do have an instructor who will be more than happy to teach you.


Whilst we understand that this situation can be frustrating, we really do appreciate your patience and support at this time.


Thank you on behalf of all the team at ADS.
