Give key workers priority to driving test and lessons

Petition Details

I would like the government to give priority to key workers working in social care or NHS to be able to book driving test and lessons. I am healthcare assistant and have been waiting since the first initial Lockdown, the next available date for my test was in January 25 and has now been cancelled.

Additional Information

If the government agree with the petition I will help key workers to travel safely without using public transport to work and help stop the spread of COVID-19 .

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

The Government is responsible for delivery of driving tests, but it is up to individual driving instructors who to give lessons to.

We have published the following petition, which you might like to sign:

Allow driving tests and lessons for Keyworkers: petition.parliament.uk/petitions/566844

If you want the Government to require the DVSA to prioritise keyworkers for driving tests once these restart we could accept a petition requesting this.
