⚠️Coronavirus Update


well with all the updates with lockdown, we will be going back to it on the 12 April 21, due to all the lockdowns we have had 2nd and 3rd, it has made life a little fun with Tests :( now if things go right between the start of opening to july I have tests most weeks, this in turn will open up new slots for new pupils. I do have though customers awaiting to start from the start of lockdown 3, we are all in the same boat with pupils awaiting to start this does not mean we have no spaces as some awaiting to start can only do set times or days and if a space comes up that does not mean they could take it so don't think we will not have a space. please keep dropping the messages and we will see what we can do for you. stay safe all


As of 20.00 press release from the government we have gone into the 3rd Lockdown this will run to around Mid Feb, start of March now this could go on longer. All Tests Theory and Practical have been put on hold again, This I know is not what we need to hear but it’s out of our hands ( driving instructors ) So any customer that has any of the above Booked please await an Email from DVSA with new Dates, when you do receive theses please drop me a message so we can try and work this all out.


as you all know im only at end of the phone to help you all out the best i can in these trying Times Regards Steve


well as of around 14.00 today  scotland said they will be going in to full lockdown at midnight, so looks like we be following later, we will get updates at around 20.00 tonight.


As of today lessons have been stopped again this it due to new tier 4, all tests and theroy test have been put on hold again :( im unsure on how much more any of us can take of this before we all say thats enough and we can not carry on with these lockdowns :( From my side all stay safe and we will come out og this at some point and we see you all again, take care of your selfs and we see you in the new year again :)

 05/11/20 As of today we are not again able to give driving lessons this inc Key works, as it stands this is until start of December but this could all change in weeks to come, as for pupils that have lessons booked when we start back you will have your spots back :) pupils that should of been starting in next few weeks due to all test cancelled and lockdown we could be looking at next year now depending on test bookings, this is not ideal for any of us at the moment, pupils that had tests booked and now had them cancelled, pupils that had just started, pupils that are half way through there learning to have to stop again. As i have said to all of you in the car / over the phone or by text/what’s app or messages, im at the end of the phone for all of you, just for a chat /vent/ talk about driving /anything of the sort and if you really wont to see me we can even do live stream of some sort :) going to miss you all for 4 weeks see you all soon. Steve 

Woo Hoo We have an update that will hopefully make things good for all. So today the government / DVSA have said we can start back teaching all customers. This well now mean I can start to book you all in hopefully they have said we can start on the 4/7/20.Will I be starting then no as I said yesterday I will start a week later due to making sure I have every thing in place and you have everything in place to start, we still do not know what PPE we will need to use and from what we can work out we will know sometime from now to 2/7/20 giving us a min of 2 days to get everything in place as you can imagine its not happening in two days, as every one will be trying to get PPE . I will start to text / fb all my old pupils first then all the new ones asking about lessons will get messages next. Please reply to messages ASAP so I can get you in the car and we can start to work towards getting you ready for test. Do we know how long the waiting list is going to be no not as yet, but I would say we will be looking again at 4 months ( 12 weeks ) this is not as long as you think but we will do every thing we can to get your test done as soon as possible.  Regards steve ( sds driving school )

⚠️Coronavirus Update24/6/20at the moment we still have no date to return to work, this is not good as some types of companies can go back as of the 4/7/20 e.g. pubs / hairdressers . but DVSA are still telling us we cannot return yet as they are awaiting more info from the government. as instructors we can teach keyworks but theses keyworks should have a test booked or applied for. so, you will see instructors out on the road teaching still. and yes, I have been out as I have/ had 4 keyworks some have passed. But the main reason for the update is if we get told we can go back on the 6/7/20 I will not be going back on that day as to start with roads are going to be full and this will not help you as learner as we will more than likely sat still in traffic, the other reason is the chances are you will all or some of you will be going back to work and might not know your new shift pattens. So, if we book you all in pre part unlock and then you go to work and your boss changes your work shift as not everyone is back at work it will muck every one lessons up. So due to this and for the safety of everyone’s lessons I will delay start by a week . so every one is ready. As going from working from home to working in workplace and then having lesson on top you might not be in right state of mind as well . Due to going from nothing to full working life in less than 48hrs . so as normal I will post here or message customers in due course . if you have any Q’s drop me a message and I will answer as soon as I can.

⚠️Coronavirus Update17/4/2020Due to what the Government has said yesterday again we are still on lock down and are still unable to start lesson for the next three weeks as and when I have more info on dates to start i will update everyone hopefully by start of may will will have a better idea on what’s happening Regards steve

⚠️Coronavirus Update24/3/2020Over the weekend I’ve spent countless hours deliberating and scrutinising all the advice given by the UK and Scottish Governments, Friends, Family and Colleagues regarding COVID-19. 👥👥Being told to implement social distancing of two meters, this is something which isn’t possible to achieve in the car. 

It is with a heavy heart that I publicly announce that SDS Driving School will cease trading for a minimum period of two weeks. 😥I will be in contact with all current pupils directly as well as those who are due to start lessons in the coming days. 😢This has been an extremely difficult decision to make, however I feel our health and wellbeing comes first and as an ambassador for road safety and health towards us and others it wouldn’t be rite to continue trading in these unprecedented times. 😢I will continue to update all pupils on the next steps on this journey we face to recovery and as always, I look forward to helping you all achieve
your full UK Driving Licence. 
🚙Much love to you all, stay safe and well. ️Heartbroken 💔😞 Steve 😢



when we get more info on what and when we can start lessons again I will be in touch, please if you would still like to start lesson when this is over please still use the contact us button and we will put you on this list to start as soon as we can start giving lesson .
