CANCELLATION OF LESSONS

Failure to give 24 hours notice will result in you being charged the full lesson fee. Please note that the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (“DVSA”) stipulates that you need to give a full three working days notice of a driving test cancellation or alteration or you will lose your test fee. Please bear this in mind when booking your driving test or having the driving instructor test you for test readiness.
