You must let the Instructor know at the beginning of the training session of any matters which may affect your ability or entitlement to have driving tuition, for example, but not limited to, any lack or loss, of a valid UK driving licence.

The minimum lessons period is one hour. If, for any reason, the Instructor is late for the lesson the Instructor will make a concerted effort to inform the pupil of the estimated time of arrival. If the delay is greater than 15 minutes this time will be credited to the pupil and when possible the lesson will be extended by the time due - if this is not possible extra time will be carried forward to the next suitable lesson time.

Your Instructor will endeavour to maintain a regular lesson slots mainly at the same times each week to ensure continuity of learning, however, this cannot be guaranteed.

Prepaid lessons and any prepaid block bookings must be taken by you within six months of the date of your original payment. You will not be entitled to a refund after the expiry date of this period. At any point during this six months period, if you don’t wish to take any of the prepaid lessons, you are entitled to a refund equal to the value of any prepaid lessons not taken.

You must consult and agree on test dates and times with the Instructor before booking a test.

Your Instructor reserves the right to refuse use of a their driving school vehicle for test if the Instructor considers that the provision of a vehicle could cause a risk to public safety.
Where the Instructor’s car is used for the test, the booking period will base upon the Instructor’s normal diary schedule. Depending on the time of the test this will require a minimum of two hours booking and possibly longer.
Your Instructor will try to make every effort to ensure that the vehicle supplied for test will be fully road worthy and comply with all the legal requirements at the start of the test, the Instructor 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 test appointments that are cancelled by the DVSA due to bad weather, sickness, staff shortages or other reasons. Such cancellations are beyond the control of your Instructor and therefore the lesson driving test fee and ‘use of the car’ fee for the booked period will be charged. Your Instructor will advice about claiming compensation from the DVSA. Furthermore the Instructor is not responsible for any failure of lightbulbs etc during the Practical test. All bulbs/lights etc will be checked by the Pupil on the day of the test. This will be confirmed in text message to the Instructor on the day of the test.
