We Do Not Offer

- A negotiated price. Our prices are fixed and stated as above.
We reserve the right to withdraw the training car for the driving test without notice should the test candidate be unprepared and a risk to public safety.
We reserve the right to cancel a lesson if we suspect the pupil is suffering from the effects of alcohol or drug abuse. Your instructor will have the right to charge for loss of lesson.
We cannot be held responsible for postponement of lessons due to illness or mechanical breakdown, nor for the driving test being postponed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.
We cannot be held responsible for any consequential loss due to an unsuccessful test.
If All Goes Wrong
Our aim is to provide the highest quality service, but if we get it wrong please let us know. Any complaint would be treated fairly and in confidence.
Some driving schools renege on their responsibility by saying (in their Terms and Conditions) they are only an agency that introduces customers to instructors and are not liable if a problem arises. We do not. We accept our responsibility as a bona fide driving school and member of checkaprofessional.
All prepaid lessons must be used within 12 months and prepaid lessons cannot be refunded.
