North Lakes Driving School Terms & Conditions

Please note that all lesson times are approximate. Problems can arise due to unforeseen circumstances, so please allow 15 minutes before trying to contact me. If I know I am going to be more than 15 minutes late I will try to contact you myself, traffic and location permitting.


  • When block booking lessons, you must pay in advance or at the start of the first agreed lesson; in one full payment.
  • If you cancel a block booking you will be charged for lessons already taken at the standard hourly lesson price (£35.00 p/h) plus an admin fee of £35.00.
  • If you fail to show for a lesson, full payment for it must be made within 48 hours of the agreed lesson time (by bank transfer or by PayPal)
  • All monies must be paid before a driving test.
  • No credit! So please don’t ask.
  • Payment by cheque no longer accepted
  • Preparation:
  • You must bring your license and appointment/progress card to each lesson.
  • Phones must be turned off or be set to silent during a lesson.
  • If you have to cancel a lesson you must phone me at least 48 hours in advance otherwise you will be charged for the lesson. (The best time to contact me is roughly between 8.00-8.30pm).
  • Facebook, text and messenger will not be accepted as notice of cancellation as reception can be affected by location.
  • Bank Holidays will not count towards the 48 hours notice so extra time to inform me of cancellation will be needed.
  • …. and finally
  • No smoking is permitted in the car. However a comfort break can be incorporated into the lesson allowing you to have a toilet break, make a phone call etc. as long as it doesn’t interfere with the lesson plan/structure.
  • No swearing at the instructor – it could mean a long walk home!
  • If the Instructor judges that the candidate is not ready for a booked driving test, the use of the instructors car can be withdrawn.
