Driving Instructor Terms of Business


These Driving Instructor Terms of Business are designed for use by fully independent self-employed driving instructors running their own driving tuition business, i.e. they do not work either as franchisees of a driving school or as employees/freelancers engaged by a driving school.  However, they might also quite separately provide driving tuition on behalf of a driving school that engages them to do so, but when they operate in that way on any occasion they will not use these Terms and Conditions because the pupil will be contracting instead with the school and not with the instructor. A suitable document for use by a driving school where the instructor is affiliated to the 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 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.

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.
