For current learners and trainees, your trainer will be in contact as soon as it is safe for them to start work again. If you have still to sit your Theory Test now is a good time to be revising, talk to your trainer about Theory Test Pro  most of our trainers can offer this service

If you have an emergency and the minibus is on its side, possibly in a ditch, and filling with water quick access to the hammers is vital. If you have a high rate of theft of these hammers there are hammers available which have retractable cords and have removal alarms fitted.
