Amending Regulations were made to the Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions and Requirements) (Local Levels) (Scotland) Regulations 2020 today. These Regulations provide that driving lessons and tests may be provided for, or undertaken by certain limited categories of workers in a Level 4 area. Those workers are the police and fire services and employees of bus companies where the company has delegated authority from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency to provide employee driving tests.
The Regulations have been published at https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ssi/2021/86/contents/made .
