The education institution is not directly responsible for providing masks to all students and staff. An appropriate solution can be found by working with teachers.

It is important to follow the universal recommendations, including not attending classes when ill, ensuring that hands can be washed, airing rooms where necessary, cleaning surfaces, and dispersing study groups.

Both driving lessons and taking national theory and driving tests continue to be allowed after March 11, 2021. However, new test times should be postponed, if possible, and these tests should be conducted in April or May. If the exam times have already been arranged and are urgent, preventive measures (mask, disinfectants) must be taken, and the instructor must allow the 2 + 2 rule to be followed where possible. The car does not constitute an indoor space.

The Transport Board (on January 1, 2021 the Maritime Administration, the Civil Aviation Administration and the Road Administration were merged into the Transport Board) asks clients to bring their own masks and put them on before entering the driving test car or the services premises. If the client does not have a mask, it will be provided to them on-site. In addition, hands must be cleaned with a disinfectant before sitting in a car or entering the office, the disinfectants are available at the right side of each office entrance.

If a person refuses to wear a mask or use disinfectants without good reason (e.g. for health reasons), the Board reserves the right not to allow the client to enter the driving test car or service premises. The booked exam time will be cancelled, and the state fee will not be refunded.

In case of the slightest of doubts, i.e. if the person feels sick, they have been to the at-risk area or there is a suspicion of contact with the infected person, the Transport Board requests to postpone the planned visit.

The Board also recommends that customers, if possible, use the e-service to perform various necessary operations and order documents by post to receive at home and order registration plates to parcel terminals.
