As we continue to monitor the CoVid pandemic, we have made the decision to resume driving instruction in July.
The following steps will be taken to keep both the instructor and student safe and healthy.
1. The temperature of the student will be taken before each lesson.
2. Both instructor and student will be required to wear a mask the duration of the lesson. Additionally, the instructor will wear a face shield.
3. Both instructor and student will use hand sanitizer prior to entering and exiting the vehicle.
4. The vehicle will be sanitized prior to the first lesson each day and immediately following each lesson given during the day.
5. Any student who feels ill, has a cough or elevated temperature should reschedule their lesson. Late cancellation fees will be waived if the student is ill.
6. All windows will be kept open several inches to maximize fresh air flow.
7. Disposable steering wheel covers will be used.
