alternative appointment shall be made with mutual consent. Should such a postponement be a

Postponement or Cancellation of a Test

The attention of clients is drawn to the fact that THE DVSA REQUIRE AT LEAST 3 CLEAR


as a working day. If you don’t give enough notice, you will lose your fee.

The school/instructor cannot be held responsible for any postponement or cancellation of a

test by the DVSA – at whatever notice.

Clients should note that where lessons or tuition vehicle hire are cancelled at short notice, because

of a CANCELLATION BY THE DVSA, FEES ARE STILL PAYABLE. It may be possible for clients to

claim lost fees from the DVSA.

The Driving Test

Your instructor will advise the appropriate time to make an application for a driving test. The advice

will be based on the client’s progress to date. It does NOT imply that the necessary standard has

been reached or that it will for certain be reached by the appointed test date. The school/instructor

will not hesitate to advise, where necessary, the postponement of the test. This condition is intended

to save the client expense, unnecessary failure and the consequent delay in waiting for another test.

The school/instructor reserves the right to withhold the use of the school car for the test or a lesson

if, in the opinion of the instructor, the client is:-

Ø Not at driving test standard

Ø Medically unfit (including eyesight)

Ø Under the influence of drugs/alcohol

Ø Is not properly licenced to drive

Ø Falls into arrears over payment

Ø If for any other reason the instructor considers the client will be unsafe to handle a motor


You are reminded that when you go to take your driving test, you must take the required documents.

Failure to comply with this regulation will result in the examiner cancelling your test; you will forfeit

your test fee and the instructor’s fees and have to apply for a new test date.

In the event of the test appointment being sent to the client, they are required to notify the

school/instructor as soon as possible of the date, time and location of the test and show/email the

document to their instructor. The school/instructor cannot accept any responsibility for booking an

incorrect time or date of a test unless the appointment document is produced. If the appointment is

booked by the school/instructor, then an undertaking is given to show/email the booking

confirmation to the client as soon as possible.

Lessons in Own Car

Driving tuition may be given in a client’s own vehicle on the condition that it is clearly understood:-

Ø The car is fully insured for teaching for reward and the vehicle underwriters must confirm

this in writing.

Ø The instructor is covered by such insurance to drive the car – to be confirmed as above

Ø The instructor can in no way be held liable for any damage or accident. While the

instructor will make every effort to prevent the client having an accident, or damaging the

car, it will be realized that their control is very limited. If clients wish to have lessons in

their own car, then a second rear view mirror must be provided for the instructor. In view

of the extra responsibility entailed, there will normally be no reduction in lesson charges.


School cars are fully insured for tuition and driving tests. The certificate of insurance is available for


No liability of any kind can be accepted by the school/instructor for the loss of, or damage to, any

property belonging to or in the possession of the client.

undue argument.

held liable for any errors the client may commit whilst driving and unaccompanied by the instructor

either before or after the test.
