A Warrnambool driving instructor is shocked two of his students have to travel to Werribee to get their licence.
All For Learners Driving School owner Glenn Bubb said the only option for learner drivers wanting to get their manual licence at the moment was to travel to Werribee.
"It doesn't make sense that they have to go from a non-COVID area to a COVID-area to get their licence," Mr Bubb said.
He said the parents of the students were disappointed their children did not have the option to go for their manual licence in Warrnambool due to coronavirus restrictions.
"They're also learner drivers who have never driven in that area."
Mr Bubb said he was also concerned the wait to sit a licence test would blow out to three months by the time the restrictions were eased.
Prior to the coronavirus lockdown, learner drivers were waiting two months due to the backlog of international drivers rushing to obtain a Victorian licence after the state government made this a requirement in November.
"Before the coronavirus restrictions there was a two month wait, it will probably be out to three months by the time things go back to normal," Mr Bubb said.
He had his first lesson with a student last week after the state government eased coronavirus restrictions.
Mr Bubb said it was a trying time for his business, which had no funds coming in during the two month lockdown.
He said he hoped he would get busier in the coming weeks.
"I'm only doing a 10th of the amount of lessons I used to at the moment," Mr Bubb said.
He said he believed driving lessons were safe, with students and instructors using hand sanitiser and the car cleaned after each lesson.
"We want to keep things safe but I think in this particular area - where we haven't really had any coronavirus - we should be able to ease the restrictions," Mr Bubb said.
