Terms and Conditions


Payment:

All lessons must be paid in advance or on the day of the lesson, no lesson will commence unless payment has been received. Payment can be made by cash or bank transfer. Please make bank transfers the day before the lesson, this means that time isn´t wasted at the start of the lesson. Lessons are booked on a first come first served basis unless you have a regular lesson slot. Practical driving tests will take priority over any lesson, including regular bookings.

Charges for cancellation:

With a minimum of 24 hours notice - No charge

Less than 24 hours - 1 hour payable or 1 hour lost if pre-paid

Moving lessons to another day or time within the same week:

24 hours before the lesson - No charge

Less than 24 hours - 1 hour payable or 1 hour lost if pre-paid

Changing to another day or time within the same week is subject to availability. If no space is available, the terms and conditions for cancellation apply. If you move a lesson and then cancel, the terms and conditions for cancellation apply from the day and time it was moved.

Changing the pick up or drop off point:

Provided it´s not too far from the original location, and I have time to get to the next lesson, I will do my best to accommodate you. Please give as much notice as possible, preferably a minimum of 24 hours.

Failing to turn up for a lesson and your fitness to drive:

Fail to turn up for your lesson - 1 hour payable or 1 hour lost if pre-paid*

If you fail to turn up for your lesson, every attempt will be made to contact you and I will wait for 10 minutes just in case you are running late. If you are late the lesson will still end at the set time.

If you turn up for a lesson and I consider that you are unfit to drive due to drink, drugs, eyesight problems, lack of sleep or illnesss, the lesson will be cancelled and 1 hour will be payable or 1 hour lost if pre-paid.

For any change to a lesson, please text or call: 07801 560550

Please Note:

You should wear what ever you feel most comfortable in when you drive, however, you will need suitable shoes that will enable you to operate the clutch, brake and accelerator with ease.

It is essential that your clothing and hands are not contaminated with anything that would leave the controls or seat covered in something that could cause damage to the car or leave it in an unfit state for the next pupi, e.g. excessive animal hair, oil, paint, petrol, diesel, mud, etc. You will be given time to to change or clean up if necessary but the lesson will still end on time. If you are unable to change or clean up the lesson will be cancelled and 1 hour will be payable or one hour lost if pre-paid.

Bags and belongings should only be placed on the rear seat if they are clean, in other words have not been placed on the floor at any time. If they have been on the floor, they must be placed on the car floor behind your seat or in the boot of the car. Your mobile phone should be switched off or on silent. You may answer calls or read texts if the car is parked, secure and in a safe and legal position.

Although you are welcome to bring a drink with you, no food (including confectionery) is to eaten in the car. The only exceptions are calming products (like Rescue Remedy), chewing gum, mints and cough or throat sweets. Nothing, including chewing gum, must be thrown from the car. Please ask if you need a ´comfort break´ and we´ll find the nearest loo. Smoking breaks may be taken, outside the car, on request but the lesson will still end on time. It is against the law to smoke inside the car.

Every effort will be made to get you ready for your practical driving test as soon as possible and near to the end of you training, I will conduct a series of mock tests to determine whether or not you are test ready. However, if your mock test results show that you are not ready, your test will be moved to a more suitable date, subject to availability with the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). This means that all test dates are considered to be provisional and therefore subject to change.

The pass mark for the practical test is no more than 15 driving faults (formerly minor faults). Any fault that the examiner considers to be serious or dangerous will result in a fail. In order for your test to go ahead you will be required to achieve a mock test result with no more than 8 driving faults. For most of my pupils this is not too difficult.

*This is reciprocal, therefore, if I fail to turn up for a lesson you will be credited with a free hour. There is no cash equivalent.
