Terms and Conditions of Business
A Member of The ADI Federation
Pupils attention is drawn to the following terms of business. We regret the school cannot be held responsible for any misunderstanding arising from neglect to read below.
- The file issued either before or at the first appointment remains the property of the driving school and must be returned if requested. Pupils are expected to have there appointment card with them on every lesson in order that the instructor can make notes of your progress and to make the next appointment/s.
- Pupils must personally ensure that they are the holders of a current signed driving licence, which must be produced at the first lesson.
- Tuition fees- must be paid at the beginning of the lesson unless the pupil prefers to pay in advance. There are no credit terms.
- Postponement of a lesson by the driving school. If by reason of a vehicle failure or other emergency a lesson has been cancelled at short notice, an alternative appointment shall be arranged by mutual consent. Should such cancellation be that of a driving test the school shall be responsible to the pupil for the fee of the next test if it cannot be cancelled within the required time (see para. 6) regardless of the pupils continuation of lessons with the school. Pupils will appreciate that it will not always be possible to notify cancellation if a breakdown occurs on the way. If circumstances arise that a change of instructor becomes necessary, the pupil shall have the right to decline and also the right to discontinue lessons with the school.
