1. You must be of legal age to drive which is 17 and be able to produce a valid UK/Northern Ireland Category B driving licence.
2. You must meet the minimum eye test requirements, which means you must be able to read a standard UK approved number plate at a minimum distance of 20.5 meters ( 67 feet ). If you need to wear glasses or contact lenses in order to meet this requirement then you must use them to drive.
3. You must notify your instructor if there is any change in your entitlement to have driving tuition, for example if your licence has been revoked for medical or legal reasons.
4. If you wish to cancel a lesson, a minimum of 24hrs notice is required failure to do this may result in you being charged for the lesson.
5. Your instructor will turn up at the pre-arranged pick up point and if you are not there your instructor will wait 10 mins, if no contact is made they will leave and you may be charged for the lost lesson.
6. Your instructor will endeavour to arrive at the pre-determined time, if for unforeseen reasons such as traffic holdups, accidents, breakdowns lessons may need to be cancelled and no charge to the student will be made.
7. All lessons must be paid for at the time, except where a block of lessons has been bought and these are deducted from the total automatically.
8. Should you fail to reach a satisfactory standard of driving and are likely to be a danger to other road users or you are unfit through drink or drugs the ADI has a responsibility to the DVSA examiners and the right not to allow the use of the training vehicle for the purposes of the driving test. This is of course in the interest of the pupil, the examiner and other road users and is a precautionary safety measure. The DVSA guidelines do not allow for a pupil to take a practical test just for the experience.
8. No responsibility can be taken for practical tests being cancelled by the DVSA for whatever reason. Your instructor is only responsible if the vehicle presented for the practical test is not fit for purpose.
