Reeve School of Motoring Terms and Conditions

These Terms and Conditions are an important part of your driving tuition.

I, Glenn Reeve, am the proprietor and representative of Reeve School of Motoring, Sandy SG19 1HA, Beds

 

Be fit to drive: It is the responsibility of you, the pupil, to be fit to drive. You should ensure that you are free from alcohol and the use of either prescribed or non-prescribed drugs that will affect your driving.  You must hold a current and valid driving licence which must be produced on your first driving lesson, and at regular intervals throughout your training. Any changes to your driving licence due to medical conditions or driving convictions must be communicated to me immediately. Please ensure that you present yourself in suitable clothing, particularly practical footwear. It is also important to attend lessons with any appropriate glasses or contact lenses for reasons of road safety. If I think you are unfit to drive for failing to meet any of these conditions, the lesson will be cancelled at your expense. I cannot accept responsibility for any injury, loss or damage arising from a driving lesson. 

 

Lesson payments must be made at the beginning of each lesson, and can be by cash or cheque. Any unpaid cheques will be subject to an administration fee of £10.00.  Block bookings must be paid for in full on the first lesson of that block.  Refunds will only be made in exceptional circumstances.

If you suspend taking any pre-paid tuition for a period of 12 weeks or more, any remaining tuition owed will be forfeited. Prices may be varied at any time with reasonable notice.

 

Cancellation: 24 hours notice is required to cancel any driving lesson. If less than 24 hours (1 day) notice is given,  then one full hour of the lesson fee must be paid. If you suspend taking your driving lessons within a block of pre- paid lessons for a period of 12 weeks or more, then any remaining lessons will be forfeited.

I cannot be held responsible for any mechanical or electrical failure which may cause the prevention or termination of a lesson or driving test. If the weather is too severe to take a lesson I can re-arrange your lesson.The decision will be made considering your ability and any advice given by motoring organisations.If you decide to cancel at short notice due to weather and the conditions are suitable to drive, the lesson will be chargeable

If any pre-paid lessons (11 hours, buy 10 get 1 free) are not completely fulfilled I will return whatever monies are outstanding but I will not reimburse on the free lesson.

 

Lessons: Your driving lesson will be on a one to one basis.  If you would like a parent or friend to come along on your lesson then that can be arranged. You will always receive the full lesson time you have paid for. I will be happy to start and finish your lesson from different locations, providing these are agreed at least one week in advance and I will be happy to drop you off at alternative locations unless it affect my schedule,and that both are within the usual area of my work.

 

Penalties:  Whenever you are driving in the school vehicle, you will be under close supervision. However, Reeve SOM cannot be held responsible for any infringement of the law. Any fines that are incurred will be the responsibility of the driver. So beware of your speed etc otherwise you will be liable for any fines or endorsements.

 

Practical tests:  I will make every effort to help you reach a good standard of driving that will enable you to pass your driving test, and you must try to maintain regular lessons leading up to your test otherwise your test date might have to be moved back to give you more time to prepare.  The only way to pass the driving test is to be properly prepared.  In the interest of road safety I reserve the right to withdraw the use of my car for tests without prior notice, should you prove to be unsafe and not up to test standard.

  

Punctuality: I will contact you if I am going to be later than 5 minutes for your driving lesson. The time lost will be added to the end of the lesson if possible, or added to another lesson at a later date. If you are late for your lesson, then that time will be lost.

 

Communications: To ensure that communication channels are in place, please ensure that I am aware of your current mobile and land line number. 

 

Holidays and Availability: I will give you notice of holidays or days where I am unavailable. Please ensure that you do likewise.  Please be sure to book your first lesson after your holiday or break in tuition, to retain your place on the diary and to maintain progress.

  By taking driving lessons with Reeve School of Motoring  it is accepted that you have read and agree to these terms and conditions.
