Aviva Driving School Notices
Aviva Driving School – New enquiries for driving lessons
Aviva Driving School is currently unable to accept new pupils seeking lessons.
Following the introduction of phase three of the Government’s road map for reopening the country on 29 June last, our instructors have gradually started returning to work. Our priority is to provide driving lessons to our existing pupils who were in the middle of their driving lessons when the Government restrictions were introduced, ceasing all activity. Once we have taken care of our existing pupils and our driving instructors have dealt with the backlog which is significant, we will then be in a position to take on new customers.
We have recorded the contact details of those who have already expressed an interest in buying a driving lesson package and, once availability opens in their area, we will get in touch with them.
If you are interested in us contacting you in the future about driving lessons, please complete the our online form.
Unfortunately, we cannot give you a timeline as to when we can accept new pupils as this will depend on the extent of the backlog in various locations and the speed at which our driving instructors can deal with it. However, our expectation is that it is likely to be several months before we will be in a position to offer lessons to new pupils. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause you.
Aviva extends free accompanied driver insurance for Driving School pupils
We are pleased to announce that we have extended the free accompanied driver insurance cover for those pupils who have unused driving lessons with the Aviva Driving School. However, this free accompanied driver cover has only been extended to those pupils who already had this free cover activated for them to drive on the policy as at 13 March 2020 and had not completed all their driving lessons at that time.
Following the Government’s announcement on the five-phase reopening plan, we are awaiting clarification as to when driver tuition and testing can resume. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide lessons until such time as we have a definitive date. We understand that this is a difficult time for pupils who no doubt would love to complete their driving lessons and go sit their tests. The free accompanied driver insurance cover will provide pupils with more practice time as they prepare for their eventual test.
To secure this free extended cover, the policyholder should contact Aviva Direct on https://www.aviva.ie/covid-19/contact-form/ or your broker, following which a letter confirming the extended cover will issue.
Aviva Driving School not offering driving lessons at this time
Wednesday 1 April 2020, Aviva Driving School wish to advise you that we are currently adhering to guidelines issued by both Government and the Health Service Executive (HSE) by not offering driving lessons at this time.
Your driving instructor will be in touch with you directly to cancel any lessons that you have booked. Unfortunately, we cannot predict when our instructors will be able to resume lessons, but they will no doubt be in touch as soon as it is possible to do so safely. Rest assured that we will work with you to complete your remaining lessons as soon as we can.
Should you wish to discuss your accompanied driver cover, please contact your Broker or Aviva Direct, who will be happy to discuss your options with you.
We thank you for your patience and please stay safe and well.
