All trainees must be in possession of a signed provisional driving licence on
commencement of training and must satisfy the eyesight requirement.
If you are under 18 at the time of signing this agreement, it must also be
countersigned by a responsible adult who will accept joint liability for the performance of your obligations.
If you are over 18 but not paying for your lessons, this agreement must also be signed
by the person assuming responsibility for the payments.
All lessons will be booked in advance, and where possible I will allocate you a regular
Due to the increased time required between lessons for cleaning and sanitising the
vehicle, preference will be given to pupils booking lessons of 90 minutes duration.
A discount will be given for block bookings of five 90 minute lessons in
3.Payment for lessons
All lessons must be paid for by bank transfer in advance.
It is essential that I am notified in advance of training, of any medical conditions,
physical or mental, that may affect your ability to drive, because this can be dangerous for you and for other road users. If in doubt about the relevance of a particular condition you must notify me
and take my advice.
In some cases I may require you to take advice from a medical practitioner before
accepting you for lessons.
Failure to do so may invalidate my school’s insurance and leave you personally liable
for any damage or consequential loss.
I reserve the right to refuse lessons at any time if in my sole judgement you are unfit
to drive as a result of a medical condition, late night or over indulgence in drugs or alcohol. If this happens you will not be entitled to a refund.
5.Preparation for your lesson
Ensure that any necessary payment has been made in advance.
Bring your signed Terms of Business if this is your first lesson.
6.Cancellation of booked
At least 48 hours notice must be given by you if there is a need to
cancel or rearrange a lesson booking. Failure to give this notice will result in a valid claim for an equivalent value in compensation. However, if the cancelled lesson can be rearranged within the
same week then no charge will be made for the cancelled lesson.
There will be an exception for lessons cancelled for Covid-19 related reasons.
A two hour booking is required to use the training vehicle for the
Practical Test which includes a preparation lesson.
You will take my advice before booking a driving test as to whether
I consider you to be ready.
I reserve the right to withhold the training vehicle for the driving
test if, in my opinion, you have not reached the required standard.
You will also consult me before booking a particular time slot for a
test in order to ensure that the training vehicle can be made available for you without undue inconvenience to other pupils.
If you fail to do this you may have to make your own arrangements
for a vehicle.
In the event the test is cancelled by the DVSA, I will charge for
only one hour. The DVSA will offer you a new test date and time.
Trainees should be aware that the test fee will be forfeited if 5
clear working days notice of a cancellation is not given to the DVSA. This does not include Sundays, bank holidays, the day of cancellation or the day of the test.
Fees include trainee’s cover for insurance liability claims whilst driving the school’s
vehicle, providing that the trainee is duly licensed to drive and is accompanied on test by a DSA examiner or under direction of the instructor.
Every endeavour is made to safeguard the personal property of any
trainee, but please be advised that I accept no responsibility whatsoever for jewellery, cash, clothing or other property that may be left in the training vehicle.
Any complaints should be made in the first instance to Go Solo
Driver Training. In the
event of being unable to reach an agreement or settle a dispute, you
may seek further guidance as set out in the ADI code of practice.
