Similarly, if you are feeling uncomfortable or uneasy about any driving task please let me know I will be grateful for your feedback and I will think no less of you for doing this.

c) In an emergency situation it is important you follow my instructions and allow me to take control of the steering wheel if necessary, to avoid an incident. I may also need to make use of the dual controls (i.e. brake and or clutch pedals) and thus override your use of them. As soon as it is safe to do so I will advise you of why my actions were necessary and help you to calm down if required. Any subsequent discussion will focus on what can be learnt rather than who was to blame.

d) I will do my best to deliver any instructions or take any actions (even in an emergency) in a calm and measured manner so as not to alarm you or make you feel uncomfortable or disheartened in any way. I will definitely not shout or make any sarcastic or derogatory remarks.

e) You can be assured I will not use improper language or suggestive behaviour and physical contact.

You may lose, or be required to pay for any lessons booked in my diary which are postponed or cancelled by you. Especially if I am unable to obtain new replacement work for those appointment time (S). However, I reserve the right to postpone lessons due to illness, driving tests or if I consider the weather or road conditions to be unsuitable or dangerous. Unfortunately, I cannot be responsible for any costs incurred as a result of me having to postpone any lessons, for whatever reasons.

7. Punctuality

You are advised to be punctual for your lesson appointments. All such appointments should be recorded in the Appointment App to ensure mistakes are avoided. I would normally wait for you 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 I am delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. I will make up any lesson lost as a result to this at the end of the normal lesson time or as soon as possible. Any such shortfall should be recorded in the appointment app.

b) The deposit, or and subsequent training fees paid are not refundable in the event you decide to cancel the training once the booking has been accepted by me and placed in my diary. At this point a binding agreement is made between yourself and me. This does not in any way affect your statutory right to be provided with the goods and services you have bought.

c) A full refund will be given if I can not satisfy any special requirements discussed and agreed prior to starting lessons.

9. The Driving Test

a) Bookings Driving tests can be booked by you or myself on your behalf. Driving tests 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 me as soon as they are known to you , otherwise I cannot guarantee to provide a vehicle for the test or any lessons just prior to it.

b) Use of the vehicle In the interests of customer and public safety I reserve the right to withhold the use of the training car for the test if, in my opinion your driving is actually or potentially dangerous – behaviour which if repeated on the test would result in a test failure.

c) Test cancellation Three working days (Sundays and public holidays don’t count as working days) notice of test cancellation or postponement is required by the DVSA. Therefore, to cancel a test booked for Friday you need to do this online no later than the preceding Monday thus giving three clear working days (i.e. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday). Failure to provide the required notice will result in the loss of your test fee. I cannot be held responsible for any postponement or cancellation of tests by you or the DVSA. However, I will do all that is possible to arrange another test as quickly as possible and to help you to reclaim expenses from the DVSA if appropriate.

10. Lesson Cancellation

Please give me at least 48 hours prior notice for all pre-booked lessons so that I can fit in another student in your place. Failure to do so may result in lesson fee forfeited or become due for payment. However, I reserve the right to waive this charge if I deem that you had circumstantial reasons that were beyond your control. Once I am satisfied with your reason(s), I may decide to waive this charge. Otherwise, full lesson fee forfeited or become due for payment.

11. Blocked Booking Fees and Lesson

All blocked booked discounted lessons should be taken within a maximum of four months.  This condition may be waived due to unavoidable circumstances.  In the absence of such circumstances you are required to regularly attend lessons and aim to take these blocked booked lessons with the above mentioned time frame.  I reserve the right to cancel your lessons if you fail to attend lessons without any valid reasons in which case non-discounted rate will be applied to all lessons delivered and any balance refunded after deduction from the blocked booking fee paid.
