Terms and Conditions Donnie’s Driving's aim is to educate drivers to the highest possible standards. Lessons are based upon a combination of interactive e-based learning and a high standard of in-car delivery, whilst also designed to be engaging and fun. To achieve this aim, both the pupil and instructor should agree to the following:
Appointments / Cancellations Turn up on time, in a fit state to drive. If the pupil is unfit to carry out the driving lesson safely due to alcohol / drugs / lack of sleep or any other circumstance likely to affect their ability to drive the car safely the lesson will be cancelled and the full lesson price will be charged Give a minimum of 2 working days notice of cancellation of a lesson (failure to do this may result in a cancellation fee being charged. Exceptional circumstances will be taken into consideration)
Late arrival PUPIL: We will only wait 15 minutes from your scheduled start time unless we have received a phone call or text asking to wait longer. The pupil’s lesson time starts from the original time scheduled, not the time they turned up. *We reserve the right to charge the pupil the full cost of the hour(s) cancelled at short notice or if they fail to appear for their driving lesson(s). This payment will have to be made before the start of the next lesson* INSTRUCTOR: We are committed to delivering a reliable and a high quality service to all our pupils and we will arrive for your lesson when we say we would. However, sometimes even we cannot manage that. If we are late then we will either finish your lesson later or arrange for that time to be added to your next lesson. If you have paid for 60 minutes then you will get 60 minutes not 50 minutes. We will try to achieve 100% reliability with each and every pupil. We would also expect the pupil to wait at least the 10 minutes if the instructor has been delayed. We also understand that sometimes things happen that may cause you to be late. We will normally wait for a pupil turning up for a lesson late but for no more than 15 minutes after the lesson start time, unless otherwise asked to remain for a longer period. The pupils lesson time will start at the original start time, not the time the pupil has turned up for the lesson.
Earn Free lesson(s) For each 10 fully priced driving lessons you have in the car you will earn 1 free driving lesson. This can be taken immediately after completion of 10 hours. Qualifying lessons include hourly paid and blocks of 10 but excludes any special offers, introductory lessons, driving courses, advanced skill courses or test re-sit lessons. The lesson is not transferable and it has no cash value to the pupil.
Pupil Referral Scheme For each pupil that you introduce to Donnie’s Driving School you can claim a free lesson. The new pupil has to have taken at least 4 fully priced driving lessons before you will qualify for the free driving lesson.
