Driving Instructor Terms & Conditions
These Driving Instructor Terms and Conditions are designed for use by independent driving instructors that are not affiliated with a driving school. This document may also be used by instructors who are employed or otherwise retained by a driving school when providing tuition outside of their contract with that school.
It should be noted that this document is not designed for use by instructors working through a school. A suitable document where the instructor is affiliated with a driving school, Driving School Terms and Conditions, is also available in this subfolder.
These terms and conditions assume that, generally, lessons are booked and paid for in advance (usually in blocks). Terms regarding booking and payment are worded accordingly. References to a pupil being charged for a lesson should thus be taken as meaning that if, for example, a pupil has paid for five lessons, one lesson will be deducted from that total when it is ‘charged for’.
Optional clauses appear throughout the document including those allowing pupils to take lessons in their own cars; and determining which party is responsible for booking driving tests.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
This document should be used only where the driving instructor’s pupil is a “consumer” as defined in the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (i.e. an individual who receives services for his/her personal use and for purposes wholly or mainly outside the purposes of any business of that individual or another). The terms are suitable for use where the contract is an “on premises”, “off premises” or “distance” contract as defined in the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. The Regulations require you to supply certain information to pupils who are consumers before they make an appointment for their first lesson. Where the contract is an “off premises” or “distance” contract, the Regulations also confer on the pupil certain rights to cancel his/her lessons, and we have set these out in the terms themselves.
