As we pass the one year mark with the COVID-19 Pandemic, Advantage Driving School believes we
have a responsibility to help prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus and still provide
quality driving lessons.
Our commitment to our students:
- Our instructors have been fully trained in best practices, cleaning protocols and teaching
safely while using the PPE that has been provided to them
- Our instructors are taking their temperature both the night before and morning of lessons,
to help with early identification of possible symptoms.
- 75% of our instructors have been vaccinated with the goal of 100% by May 1, 2021
- We are following federal, state and county recommendations, and you can be sure that our
students’ health and safety is our highest priority.
Our commitment to our instructors:
- We will communicate regularly with students on their behalf to ensure that students are taking every reasonable precaution to avoid exposure to the coronavirus.
- We will provide the personal protective equipment (or PPE) necessary to keep them safe and healthy when they return to work - including sneeze guards, face masks, hand sanitizer and the cleaning supplies needed between lessons.
- We will support their decision to teach in every way possible, and we support their right to choose to not teach a lesson, if they believe a student is unwell.
Other changes we have made:
- We have eliminated cancellation fees, to remove any barrier between a student who is feeling unwell, and their decision to cancel a lesson.
- We have updated our cleaning protocols and extended time in between lessons to allow two cleanings: one after a student has exited the vehicle, and a second cleaning before the next student has entered.
- We will have the windows down about 4 inches and the air conditioner set to outside air.
- If students forget their mask on the day of training, we are providing disposable masks in cars, to provide to the student. This is with the understanding that if the student wears glasses, they should be absolutely sure they can drive safely, while wearing the disposable mask. Students will be asked to take the mask away with them at the end of the lesson.
We want to thank you for helping us keep each other safe in these unprecedented times. And as always, if you have any questions, please reach out to our friendly support staff.
