LESSON DURATION

All lessons are for two hours. The instructor will endeavour to provide the same slots on a weekly basis however there is some flexibility to provide instruction at a convenient time negotiated by the student and the instructor.

 

The student should present their self for their lesson at the time required. Any delays to the start of the lesson caused by the student will be deducted from the overall lesson time.

 

TRAFFIC

The instructor cannot be held responsible for any lateness that should arise from the build up of traffic or road works, however any time lost will be added to the immediate or following lessons.

 

The instructor will always ensure that the full lesson time is provided.

 

TRAINING LOCATION

This is at the discretion of the instructor inline with the ability of the student during each and every lesson.

This will be discussed between the student and the instructor who will highlight the highs and lows of the student’s ability.

The instructor will explain the student’s progress as their ability improves.

 

DRIVING TEST

The test shall be booked inline with the instructor’s agreement once the required standard has been met by the student’s ability.

 

If the student is deemed unfit for test on the driving test date then the instructor has all the rights to withdraw both student and vehicle from the test.

 

VEHICLE FAILURE

The instructor will do everything possible to ensure the training vehicle is of a good roadworthy condition, however if the vehicle develops a fault prior to and during a lesson then the instructor cannot and will not be held liable.

 

The vehicle will be repaired as soon as possible so training can resume at the next available opportunity.

Any time lost will be added and any lessons that have to be unfortunately cancelled will be rescheduled.

 

CODE OF CONDUCT

Both student and instructor must conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.

If the instructor feels that the student is unfit to drive through any kind of substance or is too nervous to take control of the vehicle then the code of conduct would have been broken and the instructor will cease the lesson immediately. Full payment will be due at this point.
