The Driver and Vehicle Standard Agency has confirmed that driving lessons are set to resume from the 12 April in England and Wales, with tests expected to resume on the 22 April.

The DVSA will be offering more tests and examiners, including at weekends and on bank holidays, so that learner drivers can catch up.

Alex Kindred, Car insurance expert at Confused.com says: “The announcement that learners will be able to re-start driving lessons and book tests is another step towards resuming some ‘normality’.

“While demand is high for lessons and tests due and many keen to get back in the driving seat, for some, it must be daunting, having spent time away from the wheel.

“Taking a driving test, be it for the first of fifth time is always nerve-wracking, and some learners might have lost confidence during the lockdown period. This is why lessons have been planned to resume first.

“These extra lessons will hopefully give new drivers the boost they need to pass with flying colours
