Castle Driving School Terms and Conditions
Please review our terms and conditions. You can contact us on 01206 728939 if you have any questions.
Intensive Courses Terms and Conditions
- In the event of illness of an instructor we will offer alternative dates as soon as possible. If these are unacceptable the deposits and balances will of course be returned to you. The school cannot be held responsible if a test is cancelled at short notice by the DVSA. This is totally out of our control. Once a course has been booked, the hours must be completed as originally allocated. If a test is cancelled by the DVSA then the last two hours of the course (allocated to the test day) will be moved to your new test date. The DVSA will give you a new test time, if this is too far away we will do our very best to get your new test date moved to as near as possible to your original test date. As a result and because we are often booking courses well in advance sometimes the instructors diary can change due to test/lesson committments. If this happens we would advise you ASAP. In general, this would only affect the time by approximately a couple of hours at the most.
- Deposit fees (currently £150.00) are paid in advance and are non-refundable except for reasons as outlined in section 1.
- You will understand that we have the right to withhold any vehicle to be used on a test, for the safety reasons of all concerned, if it is clear that a pupil has not reached a competent standard.
- In the event of mechanical breakdown, we regret we cannot be held responsible if it proves necessary to cancel the course.
- Please be aware that when booking an intensive course or days at a time that they must be completed in the times originally allocated. In common with the industry, we are unable to refund any monies unless 6 weeks written notice of cancellation is given, even if a pupil is taken ill before or during the course. If any hours/days are missed due to any reason then you will have to rebook and pay for these hours again. If too many days are missed then the test will have to be moved. The DVSA ask for 3 working days notice for a cancellation of a test, so if you were unable to do this you would unfortunately lose your test fee.
- On your test day, please bring your photo card driving licence. If you have an old style licence you will need a valid passport as identification. You will also need to bring your theory pass certificate in case it is needed.
- It is your responsibility to ensure you can read a number plate from a distance of 20.5m (67 feet).
