Hi Everyone
There has been a flurry of questions regarding instructors getting back to work yesterday as there has been news Police in England have no powers to fine on the 2 meter rule, this of course is now correct, however in England, you still need a reasonable excuse to leave the house, learning to drive is not included in the reasonable excuse list.I thought the attached document from NPCC issued today may be useful if you are asked.Attachments
