Can my son's friend legally teach him to drive using his car?

My son is working from home during lockdown, so is his flatmate. They have a bit more time available without their commutes so his flatmate has offered to take my son for practice drives. Is this allowed?

It is if your son's friend is:

-Over 21
-Held their licence for at least three years
-Has valid car insurance that also covers your son as a learner driver to use the vehicle
