Terms and Conditions
terms and conditions are largely in line with BSM
but here's a few lines from me....
Expectation from me
Be fit to drive: Let me know of any prescribed drugs that will affect your driving. You must hold a current and valid driving licence which must be produced on your first driving lesson, and at regular intervals throughout your training.
Any changes to your driving licence due to medical conditions or driving convictions must be communicated to me immediately.
Please ensure that you present yourself in suitable clothing, particularly practical footwear.
It is also important to attend lessons with any appropriate glasses or contact lenses for reasons of road safety. If I think you are unfit to drive for failing to meet any of these conditions, the lesson will be cancelled at your expense.
I cannot accept responsibility for any injury, loss or damage arising from a driving lesson.
payments: must be made at the beginning of each lesson, and can be by cash or bank transfer. Block bookings must be paid for in full on the first lesson of that block. Refunds will only be made in exceptional circumstances.
Paid lessons should be taken within a 6 month period.
Prices may be varied at any time with reasonable notice
Lesson Cancellation: 48 hours (2 days) notice is required to cancel any driving lesson. If less than 48 hours (2 days) notice is given the full lesson fee must be paid. If you suspend taking your driving lessons within a block of pre paid lessons for a period of 6 months or more, then any remaining lessons will be forfeited.
I cannot be held responsible for any mechanical or electrical failure which may cause the prevention or termination of a lesson or driving test. If the weather is too severe to take a lesson I can re-arrange your lesson.The decision will be made considering your ability and any advice given by motoring organisations.If you decide to cancel at short notice due to weather and the conditions are suitable to drive, the lesson will be chargeable
Practical tests: I will make every effort to help you reach a good standard of driving that will enable you to pass your driving test, and you must try to maintain regular lessons leading up to your test otherwise your test date might have to be moved back to give you more time to prepare. The only way to pass the driving test is to be properly prepared. In the interest of road safety I reserve the right to withdraw the use of my car for tests without prior notice, should you prove to be unsafe and not up to test standard.
The lesson complies to the Highway Code and UK Law. Therefore as an example if the pupil is caught speeding the pupil takes any penalties awarded.
The driving lesson can sometimes be recorded the I may use the recording for such things as marketing and evidence. The pupil will allowed a copy at their reasonable request.
Please do not shout at the driving instructor.
Please show courtesy to other road users.
Expectations from the pupil
im usually very punctual arrive to lessons on time but London traffic can be unpredicable, if i am gong to be late i will call or text the pupil. Time can sometimes be made up at the end of lessons or on another occasion
The interior of the car will be smart, clean and free of unpleasant smells.
The pupil will be given a progress report form on the first lesson which will chart their skill development. which will be updated at the end of the lesson
I will encourage the pupil to pass the theory test within the first 6 weeks or 12 hours of training.
After the theory test has been passedi will schedule a program of lessons until a point where the pupil should be of test standard. This is not a commitment that the pupil will be test standard but a guide.
Sometimes i may need to refuel , if this occurs you will be asked to help as part of your learning
I will not shout at you.
i will not touch you unless I need to take control of the steering wheel in an emergency contact may occur.
