These Driving Instructor Terms of Business 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 template 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 of
Business, is also available in this subfolder.
These terms of business 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
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.
This template has been updated to take full account of the Consumer Rights
Act 2015 and the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and
Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
