Terms and Conditions
Introduction
The following terms and conditions represent the basis upon which driving lessons and courses are offered to you by your instructor. Please note the contract for service is between yourself and the instructor.

1.  General Conduct
Your instructor will be courteous, polite, tidy and punctual. He or she will also behave in a professional and ethical manner at all times. Your instructor’s car will be well maintained, clean and tidy. All cars used by instructors are fitted with dual-controls as part of their standard equipment. The cars are of course fully insured for driving tuition. Instructors will not smoke in the car while giving tuition, nor will they use your lesson time for any other form of business, personal or otherwise.

2.  Qualifications
As a minimum your instructor will be licensed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) to give driving tuition. 

3.  Driving Licence and Eyesight
The learner must hold a current, valid driving licence (provisional or full), which must be produced on or in advance of their first lesson. The learner must also check that they can read a number plate at a distance of 20.5 metres (i.e. 67 feet - about 5 car lengths) with glasses if normally worn.

4.  Payments
Please note payments must be made in advance of the training. To book a course, a 50% deposit or the full course fee (if the course start date is within 4 weeks of the booking date) is required.

Please note the deposit or any subsequent training fees paid are not refundable in the event that you decide to cancel the training once the booking has been accepted by your instructor. At this point a binding agreement is made between yourself and the instructor. This does not in any way affect your statutory rights to be provided with the goods and services you have bought. Please also note that a full refund will be given if the your instructor is unable to meet any special requirements noted and as shown under “Special Requirements” on your booking confirmation.

5.  Lesson Postponement
Provided 24 hours notice is provided of cancellation or the instructor can easily obtain additional work for any lessons postponed no penalty will be incurred. If this is not possible the full training fee for the period in question may, at the total discretion of the instructor, be lost or charged. Your instructor reserves the right to postpone lessons if he or she feels that the weather or road conditions are unsuitable or dangerous. The instructor cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred as a result of him or her having to postpone any lessons, for whatever reason.

6.  The Driving Test
 a) Bookings
Driving tests can be booked by you or your instructor . Driving test bookings always take priority over other lessons. Therefore, your lesson may be postponed to allow for someone else’s driving test and vice-versa. Changes to lesson bookings as a result of this will be notified immediately. Test appointments must be notified to your instructor as soon as they are known, otherwise he or she cannot guarantee to provide a vehicle for the test.

 b) Use of the vehicle
In the interests of customer and public safety your instructor reserves the right to withhold the use of a car for the test if, in their opinion, your driving is actually or potentially dangerous.

 c) Test cancellation
Three clear working days notice of cancellation or postponement is required by the DSA. Failure to provide the required notice will result in the loss of your test fee. Your instructor cannot be held responsible for any postponement or cancellation of tests by the DSA. However, he or she will do all that is possible to arrange another test as quickly as possible and to help you to reclaim expenses from the DSA.

7.  Punctuality
In their own interests learners are advised to be punctual for their lesson appointments.  The instructor would normally wait for a maximum of 15 minutes before the lesson would be abandoned and the lesson fee forfeited or become due for payment. A reciprocal waiting time may become necessary if the instructor is delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. Any lesson time lost as a result of this would be made up by the instructor either at the end of the normal lesson time if possible or at a later date. Any such shortfall should be recorded.

8.  Learner Comfort and Safety
In the interests of comfort and safety learners are advised to wear suitable footwear and clothing which does not restrict movement. Learners must also take note of any medication they are taking that may affect their ability to drive safely and advise their instructor accordingly before taking any lesson booked.

9.  Complaints
In the event of a complaint all efforts must be made to resolve the problem directly with the instructor.

10. YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS
Nothing in these terms and conditions will reduce your statutory rights relating to faulty or misdescribed goods or services provided. Your instructors have a statutory obligation to provide you with goods and services fit for the purpose for which they were bought and as described. If you have any doubts about your statutory rights please contact your local Trading Standards Department or Citizen's Advice Bureau.
