I am a fully qualified DVSA government approved driving instructor and have been for 15 years. I trained with one of the largest driving schools, where I worked for 13½ years, until I decided to start my own driving school in 2016.
I can now be more flexible and helpful in meeting my students' schedules. My driving lessons are tailored to each student's needs - Everyone learns in a different way!
Areas I cover include Basingstoke, Four Marks, Alton, Hook, Aldershot, Farnbrough & Farnham. Test centres I cover are Basingstoke and Farnbrough. Read more about me
Resuming Lessons and COVID-19
A few guidelines for the safe return of driving lessons
If You Show Symptoms
If you or anyone in your household are showing any of the symptoms of the virus you must immediately notify your instructor and follow government advice and cancel any lessons for the next two weeks.
Health & Safety
Students may choose to wear their own PPE, such as gloves and facemasks. Any PPE must be provided by the student and must not obscure their view of the road or ability to use the controls of the car.
At all times during driving lessons the windows in the car should remain slightly open depending on the weather to ensure safe ventilation.
All students and instructors must ensure that their arms and legs are covered during all driving lessons, shorts and t-shirts much not be worn at any time.
Please wash your hands thoroughly before and after each of your driving lessons. You may also be asked to use hand sanitiser if this is available or you can bring your own if you have it. Additional car cleaning will be required between lessons. Please do not touch any surfaces or controls in the car unless it is necessary.
Jason Richards will follow every precaution to ensure health and safety guidelines are followed. All government advice will be followed and lessons may be subject to change depending on the current threat level.
