To be eligible to undertake driving lessons with Varsity Driving School, you must:
– be the legal age of 17 and must produce a valid UK category B driving license to drive on UK roads
– meet the minimum eye test requirements, which means you must be able to read the standard UK approved number plate at a minimum distance of 20.5metres (67 feet)
If you wish to cancel a lesson, you must give a minimum of 48 hours notice. Failure to give 48 hours of notice could result in the lesson having to be paid in full. Lessons can be cancelled by phone or by text; however, a cancellation confirmation must be received for the lesson to be considered cancelled. We reserve the right to postpone lessons at short notice if we consider the weather or road conditions are unsuitable or dangerous.
Pick-up points and timekeeping
We will endeavour to collect you on time at your pre-arranged pick-up point. We give the courtesy of ten minutes waiting time, after which we will leave and you will be required to pay for the lesson in full.
We endeavour to be on-time, however, if there are unforeseen delays, the lesson time may need to change or be cancelled. If a lesson is cancelled by ourselves, there will be no charge.
Lessons must be paid for in advance or at the beginning of each lesson by cash, card or bank transfer. Bulk payments made must be taken within 10 weeks from the first lesson of the bulk payment being made. Bulk payments are non-refundable after 8 weeks.
If you the candidate becomes in arrears of up to 4 hours or £140 of driving lessons, your instructor has the right to stop lessons until the hours or money is up to date.
We accept no responsibility for tests cancelled by the DVSA for any reason. Lessons will have to be paid for, but part can be claimed back from the DVSA. The instructor will be responsible if the test is cancelled due to the condition of the car.
If a Varsity Driving School instructor believes you, the candidate, is not up to the test standard for your driving test and believes his or her car is at risk, the instructor has the right to refuse the use of his or her driving school car for the day of your test.
