Critical NHS/ Care/ Essential key workers are still be able to access driving lessons and emergency driving tests during this difficult time.
During the Coronavirus COVID-19 crisis, it’s critically important that key workers can carry out their jobs as easily as possible. The Government is doing what they can to support key/critical workers at this time. One way is letting them carry on with driving lessons and tests.
At Matt Shurmer Driving School, we are proud to provide weekly and intensive driving lessons for key workers during COVID-19. We have healthy instructors teaching key workers and helping them get their driving licence quickly. Our instructors will help you pass quickly, easily and safely.
At this time, we are able to provide driving lessons for NHS/ Care or Essential workers who are classed as critical to the COVID-19 response.
The DVSA has recently announced that driving tests will be suspended for up to 3+ months. However, emergency theory and practical driving tests for critical workers will be available.
NHS/ Care Keyworkers are those whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response such as staff working in health and social care on the frontline. This includes nurses and doctors, midwives, paramedics, and support/specialist staff in this sector.
If you work in one of the critical sectors and need to book an emergency driving test, you will need to email the DVSA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re a critical worker that requires an emergency theory test, please email email@example.com and follow the steps provided.
You will be asked to provide proof that it is essential to your work that your test goes ahead. When contacting the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, use a work email where possible. They may also ask you to send a photo of your work ID badge to prove that you’re a key worker.

Driving tuition might seem like a straightforward process that can be formulated and systematically applied to each student. In actuality every individual pupil learns at different rates and with different teaching methods. When you are picking a driving school, steer clear of ‘one size fits all’ attitudes, as a good instructor should be able to adapt to all learning styles.
Matt Shurmer Driving School takes this a step further, by offering completely client-centred lessons. Not only are you not given a set lesson structure to work through but you have the freedom to express whether you feel like a certain area could use more work.
For instance at Matt Shurmer Driving School you will never be put under pressure to complete a task you don’t feel ready to do.
Our instructors pride themselves on being flexible and dynamic to deliver the best lessons for each respective pupil.
There are lots of factors to consider when you are making that all-important decision of which driving school to pick. Some people wrongly assume that the choice isn’t so important, as much as the work you are willing to put into learning. This is not the case. Your driving instructor can accelerate your learning, or they can actually impede it and set you back.
When it comes to investing your own hard-earned money, or your parents’ money into driving lessons you want to make sure you are going to get great value for money! The instructor who is closest to your house may be tempting but you may be surprised to hear that proximity really doesn’t matter. In fact most driving instructors will pick you up and drop you back off at your house for your lesson provided they cover your area at no extra charge.
Distance shouldn’t be a huge factor for this reason but reviews and recommendations should demand your attention. Look at what previous pupils have to say – what were their favourite things about the instructor? If there are a large number of past students singing praises for the instructor then you’re off to a good start.
We have 22 different fully-qualified driving instructors that are CRB/ DBS checked and registered for your complete peace of mind. We have both male and female driving instructors (some women feel more comfortable being taught by another woman, and we respect that), and each of them can be seen on the ‘Meet The Team’ page on our website. You can learn more about them from a short biography, and read what their students had to say. If you can’t find any feedback from past pupils when you are looking at instructors from other schools, proceed with caution!
Matt Shurmer Driving School has been established since 2007 and is an experienced and trustworthy driving school with a well-earned reputation in the local area.
