Terms & Conditions

The following terms & conditions represent the basis upon which driving lessons and courses are offered.  By starting driving lessons with Freedom School Of Motoring, the student accepts the terms a conditions set out below. 

All students must be in possession of a valid UK provisional/full driving licence before any training can commence.  The licence must be shown on the first lesson and a permission code to verify the licence online must be produced.

The student must meet the eye test requirements of being able to read a standard UK number plate at a minimum distance of 20.5 metres (67 feet).  If the student needs to wear glasses or contact lenses in order to meet these requirements then they must wear them whenever they drive. 

All payments must be paid at the start of each driving lesson by cash or by bank transfer.  On the first lesson the student must pay for one advance lesson as a deposit. 

The student must not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs when arriving for the lesson.  If the instructor feels that there are signs of misuse of drugs or alcohol the lesson will not go ahead but the student will have to pay the normal fee.

If the student fails to give the instructor a minimum of 48 hours notice by telephone or text cancelling any lesson the monies in respect of the lesson will be charged at the normal rate. 

All students should make sure that their mobile phones are switched off, or on silent, throughout the lesson. 

All lessons start and finish at the same location unless previously arranged between the instructor and student. 

No refund will be given in respect of lessons not taken within 3 months of payment nor will the monies paid be transferred.  The lessons purchased in your name cannot be sold or transferred to any other person.

If you recommend somebody to Freedom School Of Motoring we will give you a free one hour lesson when they have completed 10 hours with us as a way of thanking you. 

The instructor reserves the right to withdraw the school car should the student book a practical test without prior knowledge as the car may not be available, or in the opinion of the instructor, the student is not up to test standard and it would be considered a risk to the safety of the public. 

The instructor cannot be held responsible for test appointments cancelled by the DVSA due to bad weather, sickness, staff shortages or other reasons.  Such cancellations are beyond the control of the instructor and therefore the lesson fee and use of the car fee for the booked time will be charged.  The instructor will advise you about claiming compensation from the DVSA. 

The school car is fitted with a dashcam which covers external front and rear positions.  The dashcam is fitted for insurance purposes only.
