1. Driving Licence and Eyesight
The learner must hold a current, valid driving license (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 meters (i.e. 67 feet – about 5 car lengths) with glasses if normally worn.
2. The Lesson or Driving Test
Can be made preferably by phone contact. Alternatively, e mail, text, or via facebook are alternatives. Cancelation of an arranged appointment needs 48 hours notice by phone failure to do so will result in payment for the cancelled lesson. Any block bookings and or payment upfront for lessons are non refundable due to pupil non attendance.
b) Use of the vehicle for a lesson or test
In the interests of safety to both the pupil and public, I reserve the right to withhold the use of a car for or any lesson or test if, in my opinion, you are not in a fit state to drive or 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. Cost of car for test and 1 hour lesson prior to test is chargeable.
Either, cash, cheque ,direct debit, internet transfer or payments via card in car by card are accepted. Payable at the start of the lesson. Any payments made for bulk lessons where a pupil changes their mind are non refundable.
In their own interests all pupils are advised to be punctual for their lesson appointments. I will endeavor to be at the arrange time within +/- 10 minutes. I will wait for 15 minutes, after which time if you do not arrive for the arranged lesson the full fee will be charged.
