Oxon Driving Tuitions Terms and Conditions
Welcome to Oxon Driving Tuitions. By accessing our website and/or booking driving lessons with us, you agree to comply with the following Terms and Conditions. Please read these carefully before proceeding.
Tuition fees are as stated in the driving school’s price list and are payable in advance. Payment can be made online via bank transfer 24 hours before the lesson or by cash during the lesson. All accounts must be cleared in cash before proceeding with an official driving test.
Lesson Bookings and Cancellations
All driving lesson bookings can be made through our website or by calling our office. At least 48 hours notice of postponement or cancellation of a lesson is required. Late cancellations or postponements will be charged as specified in the Price List. There may be an administration charge if it is required to invoice the pupil for late cancellation or postponement fees. Such notice to the school/instructor (in writing, by telephone or by text) shall be deemed to have been served on the day that the communication is received at the school/instructor’s premises where it will be timed and recorded.
If money is taken in advance for any driving lessons, the instructor should keep a proper customer account, and the pupil should be kept advised of the state of their account. Money for a driving test application should normally be taken at the time or immediately prior to the instructor making the test booking.
The driving instructor must check a pupil’s entitlement to drive and their ability to read a number plate at the statutory distance. Failure to do so could leave an instructor open to criminal charges of “aiding and abetting” under the Road Traffic Act. It is unprofessional for an instructor to allow a pupil to arrive at a test centre without the correct documentation or, in the case of a practical driving test, in an unroadworthy vehicle.
The pupil’s readiness for the driving test should be openly discussed, and honest advice given. Should a pupil insist on taking the test against the instructor’s advice, the instructor may withhold the use of the tuition vehicle. In these circumstances, sufficient notice should be given so that the pupil will not forfeit the test fee.
In the case of a pupil undertaking an intensive course, they should be notified of the potential loss of fee if judged not ready by the instructor, and the fact recorded.
Pupils must personally ensure that they are the holders of a valid driving licence, which must be produced at the first lesson and may be regularly checked by the instructor. Clients must inform their driving instructor if they receive any endorsements on their licence during the time that they are receiving tuition. Clients must inform their driving instructor of any disabilities they have which may affect their ability to drive.
In the interests of comfort and safety, pupils are advised to wear suitable footwear and comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement. Please ask your instructor if you require any further advice.
The instructor should have a procedure for dealing with any complaints which are open, honest, and fair. The Registrar of Approved Driving Instructors will be prepared to offer advice in an attempt to resolve a dispute.
The school/instructor guarantees that only legally authorized instructors will give instruction. Instructors’ official authorizing documents will be displayed on the windscreen of the car and may be inspected freely at any time. Clients may be accompanied by their lesson by a supervising examiner whose job it is to ensure that the tuition given meets the required
