Driving School Terms of Business
These Driving School Terms of Business are designed for use by driving schools taking on instructors as self-employed franchisees and cover all aspects of driving tuition ranging from the initial booking of lessons to the driving test itself. Instructors working with the school do not require separate terms and conditions as this document covers both parties.
It should be noted that this template is not designed for use by individual instructors working independently of a school. A suitable document, Driving Instructor Terms of Business, is also available in this subfolder for that purpose.
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 template including those allowing lesson fees to be taken directly by the instructors rather than the school; 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.
These terms should be used only where the driving school’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 document has been updated to take full account of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
