We are very happy that we will be able to get out on the roads and begin to start to drive again soon. We look forward to teaching people how to be confident and safe while driving a car, so we do actively encourage you to get in touch with us and confirm your position. There has never been a better time to re-commit to learning how to drive, as it is a useful skill that will give you many opportunities in the future. It won’t be long now until we can all get back out on the roads to start learning, so it’s important to be prepared and to reserve your place with us. We look forward to seeing you all soon.

The coronavirus pandemic has placed substantial demands on every aspect of normal life. For a lot of businesses, this has meant closure on account of not being a vital service, and many companies have not been able to sustain themselves during this period. We want to ensure you that the whole team here at Progress are supporting as many current and future students with advice and guidance as we can.
