Corona Virus and 1st Castle

As of today, 2nd November 2020, The DVSA has announced that Driver and Rider Testing and Training is to be suspended from 5th November to the 2nd December.

Unfortunately this means that All Full licence courses will be suspended during this period.

We will be in touch with all students that have their training and tests during this period to let them know this and that we will be rebooking them in for as soon as we can after the currently lockdown period has ended.

As far as CBTs go, we feel that the DVSA’s message is somewhat ambiguous and we are currently seeking further clarity from the DVSA and the Government.

What we would hope is that, as in the previous lockdown, the key workers and people needing their motorcycle transport for work, school, college etc would be allowed to do their CBT in order to keep the economy and education going.

If this is the case we will more than likely be continuing to deliver CBT training on a 1 to 1 basis, following all of the government advice on distancing, cleaning equipment regularly and engaging with the Test and Trace program currently in effect.

We hope to be able to add an update to this statement on Thursday
