For Motorway, Pass Plus or Refresher lessons a full valid licence must be produced with identification as above. You must meet the minimum eye test requirements, which means you must be able to read a standard UK approved number plate at a minimum distance of 20.5 meters (67 feet). If you need to wear corrective glasses or contact lenses in order to meet this requirement then you must wear them whenever you drive.
2. You must notify your instructor of any change of your ability or entitlement to have driving tuition, for example if your provisional licence has been revoked or for medical reasons such as epilepsy.
3. If you wish to cancel a lesson(s), you MUST do so before 19:00hrs (7pm) the day before your lesson(s) is due. Failure to do so will result in the lesson(s) having to be paid for In Full. Lessons can be cancelled by telephone or text message but must be acknowledged by your instructor.
4. If your instructor turns up on time at a pre-arranged pick up point and you do not show, your instructor will wait 10 minutes, if there is no contact made between you they will leave and you will have to pay for the full lesson.
5. Your instructor will endeavor to arrive on time however, due to unforeseen circumstances such as breakdown, accidents or traffic hold ups, lesson times may need to change or even be cancelled. If cancelled by your instructor, no fee will be charged.
6. Lessons must be paid for in advance or at the time of the lesson by cash or cheque. Cheques should be made payable to “Moray Driving School”.
7. You must not be under the influence of drugs/alcohol during the lesson. In the event of there being any signs of drug/alcohol misuse, your instructor will withhold the use of the training vehicle for the use of tuition or driving test until you are in a legal and fit state to drive. Any prescribed medication that may affect your driving should be declared to the instructor and to the DVLA medical board.
8. Should you fail to reach a satisfactory standard of driving and are likely to be a danger to other road users, or are in an unfit condition through substance or alcohol abuse as described above, your instructor has a responsibility to the DVSA examiners not to allow the use of the training vehicle for the purpose of the driving test. This is in the interest of the pupil, the examiner and other road users and is a precautionary safety measure. DVSA guidelines do not allow for a pupil to take a practical test just for the experience.
9. No responsibility can be taken for tests cancelled by the DVSA for whatever reason. Lessons will have to be paid for but can be claimed back from the DVSA. The instructor will be responsible if the test is cancelled due to the condition of the car.
