Driving Licenses and fitness to drive – You must hold a current and valid provisional, full or international driving license and present this at the beginning of your first lesson. (The lesson will NOT continue without providing this information.) You must be fit to drive with regards to legal and medical requirements. If the instructor believes you are under the influence of any illegal substance or under the influence of alcohol, then the instructor has the right to refuse to deliver the lesson and you will be charged for the lesson accordingly. Smoking is NOT permitted at any times during the lesson.
Payment and Cancellation – lesson fees for new pupils are preferred by Bank Transfer paid on date of booking. If not received two weeks prior to the start date, then the lesson times and dates will be released. Cash,is accepted in person with the same terms as above, (payment required at the latest two weeks prior to first lesson.) Thereafter, if booking block lessons, payment for each block should be paid on the last lesson for the new block. Pay as you go, should be paid one lesson ahead. To cancel a lesson, a notice period of 48 hours is required. Failure to give notice will result with the pupil being charged for the lesson and cancellation fee paid on the date of cancellation (prior to next lesson.) Your instructor will do everything possible to ensure that your lessons start and finish on time, but reserves the right to move, cancel or postpone lessons due to exceptional circumstances e.g dangerous weather conditions, Test bookings/alterations for pupils etc... Should this happen then the instructor will make sure that fees paid in advance will be carried forward. (i.e the lesson cancelled by the instructor will be moved to the end of the block booking.)
Training Location – this is mutually agreed by you and the instructor. If the location is to be altered, then a minimum of 48 hours notice will be required. The lesson will start from the moment you are collected from the required location.
Code of Conduct – Your instructor agrees to abide by the conditions of the Professional Code of Conduct. In the unlikely event of complaint or dispute the guidelines of the Code of Conduct will be adhered to.
Driving Tests and Bookings – Your instructor reserves the right to refuse the use of the driving vehicle for the test if they feel you are not ready to sit the test and may be a risk to the general public and their safety. When booking a test the date must be agreed by you and the instructor, as the instructor will need to schedule this into the diary. You will need to book a 2 hour slot for your test and this will be charged at the agreed hourly rate. Whilst your instructor will make every effort to ensure that the vehicle supplied for the test will be fully road worthy and comply with all legal requirements at the start of the test, they cannot be held responsible for vehicle failure that occurs during the test and is not liable for consequential loss. Your instructor cannot be held responsible for tests that are cancelled by the DSA due to bad weather, sickness, staff shortages or any other reason.
Your rights – These conditions do not affect any protection a pupil has under consumer legislation.
Signature of Agreement - You will be given a copy of the terms & Conditions to sign and return to your Instructor.
