Good news: Driving lessons at the ComforDelGro Driving Centre (CDC) will be resuming some time during Phase 2, which will kick in on June 19.

Although no specific date of when lessons can resume was revealed in ComfortDelGro's press release, CDC's CEO Lim Tien Hock said they are looking forward to resuming operations once the green light is given.

To ensure learner drivers feel safe during their lessons, CDC will be implementing some precautionary measures as well.

Instructor Coaching Shield

All 163 of the centre's training cars in the fleet will be outfitted with an "Instructor Coaching Shield".

This shield is a soft plastic partition 0.8mm thick that will stretch from the roof of the vehicle and act as barrier between the two front seats.

It is about 80cm wide and 80cm long.

However, to ensure that the driving instructor is still able to reach over to the steering wheel or handbrake to guide the learner, the shield will not extend all the way to the front of a dashboard.

The shield will also not obstruct the learner's or instructor's view of the side mirrors.

This measure is an "added level of assurance" and to ensure learners are comfortable being in a confined space with the instructor during this period.

Masks required during lessons

Both instructors and learners are required to don masks during their practical lessons as well, while instructors will need to wear googles and wind down the windows too.

Comfort DelGro added that the training cars, including the shield, will be disinfected after each lesson.

All the best for those who is about to complete the driving lesson or already booked for test date and then all get cancelled due to circuit breaker. Hope you guys able to pass it. When singing up for driving lesson, there is this learning license that can only last 1 or 2 year and after that need to renew right? Do they get to extend the learning license for additional 2 months due to the circuit breaker?
