Quebec has added another gear to its deconfinement process, announcing that driving lessons throughout the province will resume as of Monday, June 15.

Minister of Labour Jean Boulet made the announcement on Wednesday, stating that the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) will start taking appointments for registered appointments and tests as of Wednesday, June 22.

The SAAQ says it plans to communicate with drivers whose tests were cancelled as a result of the pandemic and will be given priority to reschedule.

Health measures have been put in place throughout the SAAQ and at private driving lessons, according to Boulet, who says all vehicles will have to be disinfected before and after tests and training sessions. Plastic will be placed over the driver’s seat and drivers will be asked to wear masks and gloves.
