Offers and Discounted Block Bookings: Terms and Conditions

By booking with The DriveAll Driver Training Co. you agree to accept all terms and conditions.

Offers are not available to existing pupils, and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer unless agreed in writing in advance. One offer per pupil.


Refund Policy regarding Block Booking discount, or Seasonal Offers.

The processing of any refund will be subject to an administration fee of 12.5% of the price actually paid by the customer for the block that is being partially refunded.

If an on-going lesson is terminated by the customer before the end of that lesson, the lesson will be regarded as completed for the purpose of calculating any refund for untaken lessons in a block.

Any refund will be calculated using the actual hours taken or remaining, regardless of the specific length of lessons.

When a block of hours is booked incorporating a Block Booking discount, or a Seasonal Offer, and lessons are ceased for any reason whatsoever by the customer who does not wish to continue, the Block Booking discount or Seasonal Offer are deemed void from the beginning of the block that is being cut short, and normal pricing applies. (Specific conditions applying to Seasonal Offers are detailed below).

This means that ALL lessons already taken in any discounted block, whether under a Block Booking discount or Seasonal Offer, will be regarded as charged-for at our standard, non-discounted hourly rate (currently £23.00 per hour), for the purpose of calculating any potential refund for lessons remaining in the block.

Example: a person pays £210.00 for a block of 5 x 2-hour lessons, but after 3 lessons decides not to continue. The 3 lessons are then deemed to have been charged at full price (£46.00 per lesson), as the block discount is deemed void. This is 3 x 46 = 138. The refund is therefore calculated as 210-138 = 72. The administration fee (12.5% x 210.00 = 26.25) is then deducted, making a refund of £45.75 due to the customer.


Seasonal Offers - First 10-hours for £180.00 or £190.00 – Specific conditions:

The special discount offers of 10-hours for £180.00 or £190.00 are given as the first 10-hours of your driving course with us. This means that you start your driving course at the equivalent of £18.00 or £19.00 per hour. Further lessons will be charged at our normal hourly rate, although you may choose to take advantage of our Block Booking discount that applies to further blocks of a minimum 10 hours each after the first 10-hours have been taken.

Ceasing lessons at the end of, or during the initial 10 hours under a Seasonal Offer.

A Seasonal Offer is provided to people we expect to be with us for a while. It is given on the basis and understanding that a person will continue beyond the initial 10 hours on a course of lessons.

If a person chooses not to continue at the end of the initial 10 hours under a Seasonal Offer, the Seasonal Offer will be deemed void, and the person will be liable for a further payment, as explained below. Should a person choose to cease lessons during the initial 10 hours under a Seasonal Offer, the Seasonal Offer will be deemed void for the purposes of calculating any potential refund on untaken lessons in the block. This is also explained below.

Ceasing lessons at the end of the first 10 hours under a Seasonal Offer.

If a person chooses to cease taking lessons at the end of the initial 10 hours, the offer is deemed void and they will be liable for the difference between the offer price and our reduced block-booking rate. This means that if a person doesn't continue they will have to pay the current (reduced) price of a block of 10-hours instead, as if they had originally taken up a Block Booking discount for their initial 10 hours in the first place. This is currently a difference of £30.00 or £20.00 depending on which offer was taken up.

Example: a person takes up a Seasonal Offer at £190.00 for the first 10 hours, and then decides not to continue after the 10th hour. The person is liable for a further payment of £20 - the difference between the Block Booking price and what they actually paid. If they took an alternative offer of £180.00 for the first 10 hours then they are liable for a further payment of £30.00.


Ceasing lessons during the first 10 hours under a Seasonal Offer.

If a person chooses to cease lessons during the initial 10 hours, the Seasonal Offer will be deemed void, and any refund for untaken lessons remaining in the block will be calculated on the basis that the lessons already taken are charged at our standard, non-discounted hourly rate (currently £23.00 per hour).

Any refund on remaining lessons in the terminated block will be calculated in the same way as a block bought under our Block Booking discount - see above.

Example: a person pays £190.00 for a block of 5 x 2-hour lessons under a Seasonal Offer, but after 3 lessons decides not to continue.The 3 lessons are then deemed to have been charged at full price (£46.00 per lesson), as the block discount is deemed void. This is 3 x 46 = 138. The refund is therefore calculated as 190-138 = 52. The administration fee (12.5% x 190.00 = 23.75) is then deducted, making a refund of £28.25 due to the customer.

Trainees  – Terms and Conditions

Introduction

The contract for driving tuition is between you and The DriveAll Driver Training Co. and your individual instructor.

Paying for lessons

You can pay for tuition in advance via one of the following methods:

  • You can pay your Instructor directly (Any cheques must be made payable to your Instructor. Your instructor will confirm which payment methods they can accept). If you pay your Instructor directly you will be given a receipt.
  • You can pay by bank transfer. Please contact us at info@driveall.co.uk, or speak directly with your instructor for details.

You agree that monies paid in advance by you or on your behalf for driving lessons to be provided in the future will be paid to your instructor.

You can only pay for lessons via the methods outlined above. You cannot pay for lessons via any other method and neither The DriveAll Driver Training Co. or your instructor accept any liability for monies or lessons paid for by any other method than those outlined above.

Lessons

You and your Instructor are responsible for agreeing all matters relating to the timing, location and duration of individual lessons. Where you arrange lessons through The DriveAll Driver Training Co. booking office or via The DriveAll Driver Training Co. website, The DriveAll Driver Training Co. provides these services solely as agent for your Instructor.

You must present your valid UK provisional driving licence to your Instructor prior to the start of your initial lesson. Should you fail to do so, your Instructor reserves the right to refuse to provide you with tuition or to cancel any lessons you have booked with them, and you will be charged the full value of that lesson.

You must be able to read a UK registration plate on a vehicle at a distance of 20.5 metres. Should you be unable to do so, or refuse to do so, your Instructor reserves the right to refuse to provide you with tuition or to cancel any lessons you have booked with them, and you will be charged the full value of that lesson.

You must notify your Instructor of any matters existing at any time that may affect your ability or entitlement to have driving tuition, for example, but not limited to, any lack, or loss, of a valid provisional driving licence.

The value of driving lessons your Instructor will deliver to you is equal to the value of the monies received from you. Your Instructor does not know when you will redeem your prepaid lessons and therefore they can’t guarantee you that they will be available each time you choose to request a driving lesson.

Lesson prices vary and therefore the lesson prices quoted to you when you pay are only applicable in the geographical area where The DriveAll Driver Training Co. operates. If you subsequently choose to take a lesson in an alternative location, the prevailing lesson price in the new area could be different from the original lesson price quoted when your monies were received. In such an event the number of hours of driving lessons purchased will be adjusted up or down to reflect the change in lesson price.

You must give at least 2 working-days’ notice to your Instructor if you wish to cancel or re-arrange booked lesson. For the purpose of cancellation or re-arrangement, the working day is Monday to Friday, 09.00hrs to 17.00hrs. Failure to do so may result in your Instructor charging you the full amount for that lesson.

Prepaid lessons must be taken by you within six months of the date of your original payment. You will not be entitled to a refund after the expiry of this period. At any point during this six month period, if you don’t wish to take any of the prepaid lessons, you are entitled to a refund equal to the value of any prepaid lessons not taken (exceptions may apply on specific offers, see individual offer Terms and Conditions for details). An administration fee of 12.5% of your initial payment will be charged.

For security reasons, any refund of prepaid lessons will be made by either cheque or bank transfer. Refunds can only be made to the person who made the original payment, and The DriveAll Driver Training Co. reserves the right to verify the identity of the person requesting the refund.

Transferring prepaid lessons

You cannot sell or transfer lessons which have been purchased in your name to any other person.

Liability

Your Instructor and The DriveAll Driver Training Co. are not liable to you for any loss or damage caused where, and to the extent that:

There is no breach of a legal duty owed to you by the relevant person or body

Such loss or damage is not a reasonably foreseeable result of such a breach

Any such loss or damage, or increase in the same, results from any breach or omission by you

Any such loss or damage results from circumstances or matters outside of the reasonable control of the relevant person or body

Your Instructor and The DriveAll Driver Training Co. shall not, in any event, be liable for losses relating to any business interests you may have including, without limitation, lost profits, loss of opportunity or business or business interruption.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects any liability that The DriveAll Driver Training Co. may have for any loss or damage you may incur which is caused directly as a result of any breach (including negligence) by it or them of any legal duty owed by it or them to you.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will affect any statutory rights you may have as a consumer.

Law applying to Terms and Conditions

These Terms and Conditions are governed by the laws of England and Wales.

Short notice test bookings – Terms and Conditions

Booking of a Short Notice Test package consists of a minimum of 6 hours of driving instructor and tuition vehicle time. Should you wish, you can buy a block of 10-hours, and receive our Block Booking discount.

During the first 2 hours you will be assessed by your driving instructor. If after the initial two hour assessment the Driving Instructor tells you that you are not ready, we will not take you to test.

If you need additional tuition prior to the test the Driving Instructor will explain this to you. You will need to be available for the time slots he/she is available should you wish to take these lessons. If you cannot take the required hours we will not be able to take you for test.

You will need to pay for 6 hours of tuition prior to the first lesson commencing which is not refundable if the driving instructor says you are not ready for test; however this can be used for further tuition.

The Driving Standards Agency stipulates that you need to give three clear working days to cancel your test. This may mean that you may / will lose your Driving Standards Agency test fee if the Driving Instructor says you are not ready for test dependent on the gap between first lesson and test.

If you change your mind after you have made a short notice test booking and wish to cancel your booking, our standard terms and conditions apply with a minimum of 48-hours notice required prior to the lesson.

This offer cannot be taken in conjunction with any other offer.
