COVID Update- Stay At Home Lifted – Testing Begins Again

Dear Driver Training Industry Member

The Premier has just announced changes to the Direction made under the Emergency Management Act 2004 by the State Coordinator on 19 November 2020. The stay at home Direction commenced  at 12:01 am on Thursday 19 November and was to end at 12:01 am on Wednesday 25 November 2020. The recent announcement means that the stay at home Direction will end at 12:01am Sunday 22 November.

While it is too late for AE’s to book tests for Sunday any already booked may proceed. As the situation is changing quickly please keep informed of current Directions. The link is provided below for your convenience.

As a result of the original Direction the bookings fee for all driver training and assessment that have been suspended in all classes for this time will be refunded. Please do not cancel bookings via your Ezyreg account as they will disappear from the system and the bookings team will not be able to provide a refund for the cancelled booking. The bookings team will provide you with a refund for the bookings without you needing to apply.

COVID Update from Department for Infrastructure and Transport

Greetings All,

 

As you would be reading in the paper and on the Covid SA webpage there is a Parafield cluster Covid 19 health alert. Anyone who visited the locations listed on the contract tracing webpage during the listed times must self-quarantine immediately for 14 days and seek testing. If you or a client is impacted by the requirement to self-quarantine or if you or your client are displaying symptoms, in line with previous advice, during the response to the COVID 19  situation you or your clients may wish to cancel an event booked in EzyReg. In these instances please contact the bookings office in writing viaDIT.LicenceStandardsandTraining@sa.gov.au to inform them of the circumstances of the cancellation and a refund will be organised. E.g.

  • The student/AE has to self-isolate themselves
  • They have flu like symptoms
  • They have COVID 19

Include in the email client name, client number and test date and time of the booking that will need to be refunded.

This process has been implemented in response to the unique circumstances of the COVID 19 virus. Do not cancel the booking via your EzyReg account otherwise the bookings team cannot process a refund.
