Driving Standard Driver Training Services Terms and Conditions

Training Course Conditions and terms

Please read these terms and conditions before using our website or calling to book your place on any of our training courses or making any payment.

We are determined to ensure that you will find our training and services to be of an excellent standard, but you should always treat the information on this site as general advice only. Always make sure that you seek the advice and help of your chosen training course, and if in any doubt you should seek independant advice.

In the interest of all of our clients, we have to ensure a degree of commitment from our customers to ensure that training days are not lost. We have had courses arranged that were cancelled one or two days before by the customer who have decided not to continue with the training course. Although we completely understand that everyone should be free to decide their own actions, you'll realise that this leaves training days empty that would have been gratefully received by others. Therefore we have had to impose a cancellation fee of £85 on all courses cancelled at short notice. See below.

 Training Conditions

  1. These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.  By booking any training course with us you are accepting that you have read and agree with these terms and conditions.
  2. When you purchase any training advertised on our website, you are purchasing time spent with the trainer, and you are not specifically paying for time spent in the vehicle delivering instruction. All time spent in the presence of your allocated trainer is counted as ‘training time’. The term ‘Training’ may refer to practical demonstrations by the trainer, time spent watching other trainees, discussion sessions with your trainer or tuition of any description.
  3. On B + E trailer training courses which requires a DVSA trailer test, we require the £115 DVSA test fee paid in advance, and payment must be made within 3 days of booking the course. Any course that requires a test fee deposit which is not paid for within this time frame, can be cancelled without notice. On all practical training courses including the B+E trailer training courses carry a £85 administration fee if the training is cancelled by you between 15 to 25 days before the agree training / test date. Trailer training courses that are cancelled by you less than 15 days before the agreed test date, will result in a £85 administration fee, plus where applicable the £115 test booking fee is non refundable where the course is cancelled by you.
  4. We have a standard ‘no quibble’ money back guarantee, in that if you inform your trainer that you are not entirely satisfied for any reason within the first 2 hours of commencing your chosen course, your trainer will simply terminate your course and refund your training fees in full, less the standard £85 administration fee. The £115 DVSA trailer test fee is non refundable if you elect not to continue with the training.
  5. Our home study packs and handouts are compiled from various resources to make the reading and content suitable for ADI's, PDI's and other customers requiring a greater understanding of the the various DVSA tests and procedures. We therefore do not accept responsibility for any inaccurate reading material that is produced by other persons or organisations.
  6. No member of our training team can guarantee that you will pass any DVSA driving test on any attempt. We will offer you training of a very high standard, but the tests are a contract between yourself and the DVSA. We do not accept any responsibility whatsoever for the result of your tests. We also reserve the right to withhold the use of the driving instruction tuition vehicle if the driving instructor considers the trainee is not at a standard to sit the test safely.
  7. Due to the nature of the training courses, the training ratio will normally be 1 trainer to 1 trainee. There may be times where this ratio changes, however this will only be with applied if all trainees agree. We reserve the right to change the trainee's trainer should we consider it necessary.
  8. Once your training has taken place, no refunds of any description will be offered if you are unsatisfied with any aspect of the training. It is your responsibility to ensure that you inform your allocated trainer within 2 hours of your course commencing that you are unsatisfied and require a refund for any reason. Please note trainers reserve the right to retain a £85 booking and administration fee, which will be deducted from any refund.
