The appointment card will be issued either before, or at the
first lesson. The appointment card remains the property of
the driving school, and must be returned if requested.
Pupils are advised to carry the card so at the end of a
lesson the next appointment(s) can be entered, ensuring both
parties are clear what the next lesson date and time will
Pupils must personally ensure they are the holders of a
valid, signed, current driving licence, which must be
produced at the first lesson
The tuition fees on block bookings must be paid for in full
on the first lesson. Single lessons must be paid for one
lesson in advance; payment for two lessons at the first
lesson will enable a pupil to comply with this condition.
The pupil will then at all times be one lesson in credit. We
regret there are no credit terms save by prearranged special
arrangements. All accounts must be cleared before proceeding
on the official driving test.
Postponement of Driving lesson by the Driving School
If by any reason of a vehicle failure or other emergency, a
lesson has been postponed at short notice then an alternative
appointment shall be made with mutual consent. Should such a
postponement be a driving test, then Towards A Pass shall be
responsible to the pupil for the fee of the next test if it
cannot be cancelled within the required time, regardless of the pupils continuation of lessons with
the school. Pupils will appreciate that it may not always be
possible to notify cancellation if a breakdown occurs on the
way to the lesson.
Pupils will appreciate that a driving test must take
priority over ordinary lessons, and therefore a lesson
already booked may sometimes have to be rearranged if the
school receives short notice of a driving test.
Except as provided in the above, the school will be bound
to give notice of rearrangemts or postponements of a lesson
within the same time limit as the school imposes upon a
pupil postponing or cancelling a lesson.
If circumstances arise that a change of an instructor
becomes necessary, the pupil shall have the right to decline
and also the right to discontinue lessons with the School.
Money’s paid in advance shall be returned within the
conditions concerning cancellation in our Terms of
Postponement or Cancellation of Lesson by Pupils
At least two clear working days notice of postponement or
cancellation of a driving lesson is required. Please note
that Sundays and public holidays are not working days. Late
cancellations will not be refundable.
Such notice to the school (in writing or by telephone) shall
be deemed to have served on the day that the communication
is received at the schools premises, where it will be recorded.
Where by reason of late cancellation a pupil’s fee is not
refundable, an allowance will be made for such savings as
the school enjoyed as a result of the car not having been in
