Terms & Conditions

 

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Skillz2Drive Driving School reserve the right to change these terms and conditions at any time by posting changes on the website. It is your responsibility to review the website terms and conditions regularly to ensure you are aware of the latest terms and conditions. Your use of this website, after an update has been posted, will be taken as your acceptance of the modified terms and conditions.

Learner Driver – Terms and Conditions
Introduction
The contract for driving tuition is solely between you and your instructor who is a self-employed franchisee of Skillz2Drive Driving School. These Terms and Conditions apply to that contract.

 

Paying for Lessons

You must pay for tuition in advance via one of the following methods:

  •  Payment by Cash or bank transfer ONLY to your driving instructor.
  • You agree that monies must be paid in advance by you or on your behalf for driving lessons will be paid to Skillz2Drive Driving School or your driving Instructor directly.
  • Where Skillz2Drive Driving School receives your payments for driving tuition or makes bookings with, or supplies any information or documentation to you, or arranges payments to your Instructor, they act solely in a disclosed agency capacity between you and your instructor.
  • Alternatively, you can pay your Instructor directly. Your instructor will confirm which payment methods they can accept. If you pay your Instructor directly you should obtain a receipt.
  • As Skillz2Drive Driving School is not party to the contract between you and your Instructor it accepts no responsibility for any payments you make directly to your Instructor.
  • You can only pay for lessons via the methods outlined above. You cannot pay for lessons via any other method and neither Skillz2Drive Driving School or your instructor accept any liability for monies or lessons paid for by any other method than those outlined above.
  • It is your responsibility to meet the required eye sight test guide lines on the first lesson, failure to do so will result in the termination of the first lesson with no refund given.

Redeeming Prepaid Lessons

  • You and your Instructor are responsible for agreeing all matters relating to the timing, location and duration of individual lessons. Where you arrange lessons through Skillz2Drive Driving School’s booking office or via Skillz2Drive Driving School’s website, Skillz2Drive Driving School provides these services solely as agent for your Instructor.
  • You must present your valid UK provisional driving licence (or other appropriately valid licence) to your Instructor prior to the start of your initial lesson. Should you fail to do so, your Instructor reserves the right to refuse to provide you with tuition or to cancel any lessons you have booked with them, and you may be charged the full value of that lesson.
  • You must notify your Instructor of any matters existing at any time that may affect your ability or entitlement to have driving tuition, for example, but not limited to, any lack, or loss, of a valid driving licence.
  • The value of driving lessons your Instructor will deliver to you is equal to the value of the monies received from you. Your Instructor does not know when you will redeem your prepaid lessons and therefore they cannot guarantee you that they will be available each time you choose to request a driving lesson.
  • Skillz2Drive Driving School reserve the right to change lesson prices with 4 weeks’ notice.
  • You must give at least 24 hours notice to your Instructor if you wish to cancel or re-arrange booked lesson. Failure to do so may result in your Instructor charging you the full amount for that lesson.
  • It is the pupil’s responsibility to check and confirm all lessons and times in advance with their instructor.
  • You understand and acknowledge that lesson fees paid to Skillz2Drive Driving School for prepaid lessons must be applied to lessons by you within six months of the date of your original payment.
  • Intensive and semi intensive courses paid for in advance are non-refundable if you decide to pull out at any point and for any reason due to the short nature of the driving course.
  • All driving school gift vouchers have a 6-month expiry date from the date of issue.
  • Payment of the 1st five lesson offer is for new drivers only and is paid for in advance or on your first lesson in full and covers the 1st 5 lessons only. It is non-refundable and can only be used once per pupil.
  • It is the pupil’s responsibility to make sure all outstanding lessons are taken before the end of the driving course as outstanding lessons cannot be refunded.
  • You acknowledge that you will not be entitled to a refund of any lesson fees not applied to lessons, or to utilise lesson fees paid for booking further lessons, after the expiry of this period.

Transferring Prepaid Lessons:

  • You cannot sell or transfer lessons which have been purchased in your name to any other person.

Driving Instructor and Pupil Safety:

  • Driving instructors are here to help you learn to drive and will not tolerate physical or verbal abuse from any pupil. Any such behaviour will result in immediate termination of the lesson and the police being informed and no refund given.
  • Any pupil being suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs or lack of sleep at the start of the planned lesson will have their lesson terminated and no refund given for that lesson.
  • It will be the pupil’s responsibility to arrive for each lesson fit to drive for their own safety and all other road users’ safety.

Liability
Your Instructor and Skillz2Drive Driving School are not liable for any loss or damage caused where, and to the extent that:

  • There is no breach of a legal duty owed to you by the relevant person or body.
  • Such loss or damage is not a reasonably foreseeable result of such a breach of a legal duty.
  • Any such loss or damage, or increase in the same, results from any breach or omission by you.
  • Any such loss or damage results from circumstances or matters outside of the reasonable control of the relevant person or body.
  • Your Instructor and Skillz2Drive Driving School shall not, in any event, be liable for losses relating to any business interests you may have, including, without limitation, lost profits, loss of opportunity or business interruption.
  • You are reminded that Skillz2Drive Driving School are parties to the contract for driving tuition itself, which is between you and your instructor. This does not affect any liability that Skillz2Drive Driving School may have for any loss or damage you may incur which is caused directly as a result of any breach (including negligence) by it or them of any legal duty owed by it or them to you.
  • Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will affect any statutory rights you may have as a consumer.
  • We hope that all new pupils who come to us enjoy the experience of learning to drive with Skillz2Drive Driving School, but if you have any complaints or questions relating to your Instructor or Skillz2Drive Driving School please, in the first instance, inform your Instructor or contact us direct at the school head office.

Having driven on my wife's insurance for over 10 years it was high time I passed my test and drive on my own. I needed a quick refresher on manoeuvres and to make sure I had the skills and understanding to pass my test, I contacted Skillz2Drive and was contacted by Annabelle, I had a 1 hour lesson and she believed I was ready. I booked my test for 2 weeks later, had an hour before to go through the essentials and did the test, I passed!!! I got 5 minors. Thanks again Annabelle!

Today I passed my test after a 15 hour intensive course and lots of practice in my own car in between tests. I learnt with Mark Wilkins, who has been an absolute pleasure to have met. Being slightly older I was embarrassed and very nervous. Mark put that at ease within the first few lessons. I believe he only has the best interests of each student, encouraging and suggesting ways of support and progression. Thank you will never seem enough. Can’t not recommend highly enough. Thanks Mark!

I passed first time today with skillz2drive. I had Mark Wilkins as my teacher, and he was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better person to teach me how to drive... He made me feel so relaxed and comfortable from day 1 and was always encouraging me. Thank You again for being so helpful and inspiring, I really do appreciate it. Now I'm finally on the road after just 15 hours of 'intense driving course' lessons, and I couldn't feel more free. If anyone want a driving instructor that is easy going, keeps you calm, encourages you, makes you feel at ease and just in general a really nice guy, then Mark is the person for you!
