Lessons: Your driving lesson will be on a one
to one basis. If you would like a parent or friend to come along on your lesson then that can be arranged. You will always receive the full lesson time you have paid for. I will be happy to
start and finish your lesson from different locations, providing these are agreed at least one week in advance, and that both are within the usual area of my work.
Penalties: Whenever you are driving in
the school vehicle, you will be under close supervision. However, Marcus Grant cannot be held responsible for any infringement of the law. Any fines that are incurred will be the responsibility of
Practical tests: I will make every effort to
help you reach a good standard of driving that will enable you to pass your driving test, and you must try to maintain regular lessons leading up to your test otherwise your test date might have to
be moved back to give you more time to prepare. The only way to pass the driving test is to be properly prepared. In the interest of road safety I reserve the right to withdraw the use of
my car for tests without prior notice, should you prove to be unsafe and not up to test standard.
Damage to the School Car: During lessons,
I will make every effort to avoid damage to the car. However, if I consider that you were driving in a dangerous or unpredictable way during a lesson and actual damage is caused despite
best efforts made, you will be expected to pay half towards repairs (up to the level of excess on the instructor’s insurance policy). This will be discussed at the time of the damage. In addition,
during driving tests, the examiner will not prevent you, the candidate from hitting the kerb or causing other similar minor damage to the car. Therefore, all damage caused by you whilst on
test will be charged to you (up to the level of excess on the instructor’s insurance policy).
Punctuality: I will contact you if I am going
to be later than 5 minutes for your driving lesson. The time lost will be added to the end of the lesson if possible, or added to another lesson at a later date. If you are late for your lesson, then
that time will be lost.
Communications: To ensure that communication
channels are in place, please ensure that I am aware of your current mobile and landline numbers.
Holidays and Availability: I will give you
notice of holidays or days where I am unavailable. Please ensure that you do likewise. Please be sure to book your first lesson after your holiday or break in tuition, to retain your place on
the diary and to maintain progress.
Code of Practice: I will abide by
the Voluntary Code of Practice which has been agreed between DVSA and the main bodies representing Approved Driving Instructors.
Complaints by clients should be made in the first instance to Marcus
Granr. Failing agreement or settlement of a dispute, reference may be made to DVSA’s Registrar of Approved Driving Instructors who will consider the matter and advise accordingly. Should the
Registrar not be able to settle the dispute he or she may set up a panel, with representatives from the ADI industry, to consider the matter further or advise that the matter should be referred to
the courts or other statutory body to be determined.
