Friendly professional and patient female driving instructor in the Rutherglen, Cambuslang, East Kilbride and South side areas of Glasgow.
prescribed drugs that will affect your driving. You must hold a current and valid driving licence which must be produced on your first driving lesson, and at regular intervals throughout your training. Any changes to your driving licence due to medical conditions or driving convictions must be communicated to me immediately. It is important to attend lessons with any appropriate glasses or contact lenses for reasons of road safety. If I think you are unfit to drive for failing to meet any of these conditions, the lesson will be cancelled at your expense. I cannot accept responsibility for any injury, loss or damage arising from a driving lesson.
Lesson payments must be made at the beginning of each lesson, and can be by cash or bank transfer (transfer details will be provided on request). Block bookings must be paid for in full on the first lesson of that block. Refunds will only be made in exceptional circumstances. Block bookings must be used within a 5 month period.
Prices may be varied at any time with reasonable notice.
24 hours notice is required to cancel any driving lesson. If less than 24 hours notice is given, half the lesson fee must be paid. If you do not attend your driving lesson without any notice I will wait a maximum of ten minutes whilst trying to make contact resulting in the full lesson being chargeable before another lesson will be booked.I cannot be held responsible for any mechanical or electrical failure which may cause the prevention or termination of a lesson or driving test. If the weather is too severe to take a lesson I can re-arrange your lesson. The decision will be made considering your ability and any advice given by motoring organisations. If you decide to cancel at short notice due to weather and the conditions are suitable to drive, the lesson will be chargeable.
Your driving lesson will be on a one to one basis. If you would like a parent or friend to come along on your lesson then that can be arranged. You will always receive the full lesson time you have paid for. I will be happy to start and finish your lesson from different locations, providing these are agreed and that both are within the usual area of my work.
Whenever you are driving in the school vehicle, you will be under close supervision. However, Drive DMC cannot be held responsible for any infringement of the law. Any fines that are incurred will be the responsibility of the driver. I will however endeavour to prevent these from occurring.
I will make every effort to help you reach a good standard of driving that will enable you to pass your driving test, and you must try to maintain regular lessons leading up to your test otherwise your test date might have to be moved back to give you more time to prepare. The only way to pass the driving test is to be properly prepared. In the interest of road safety I reserve the right to withdraw the use of my car for tests without prior notice, should you prove to be unsafe and not up to test standard.
During lessons, I will make every effort to avoid damage to the car. However, if I consider that you were driving in a dangerous or unpredictable way during a lesson and actual damage is caused despite best efforts made, you will be expected to pay half towards repairs (up to the level of excess on the instructor’s insurance policy). This will be discussed at the time of the damage. In addition, during driving tests, the examiner will not prevent you, the candidate from hitting the kerb or causing other similar minor damage to the car. Therefore, all damage caused by you whilst on test will be charged to you (up to the level of excess on the instructor’s insurance policy).
I will contact you if I am going to be later than 5 minutes for your driving lesson. The time lost will be added to the end of the lesson if possible, or added to another lesson at a later date. If you are late for your lesson, then that time may be lost.
To ensure that communication channels are in place, please ensure that I am aware of your current phone numbers.
I will give you notice of holidays or days where I am unavailable. Please be sure to book your first lesson after your holiday or break in tuition, to retain your place on the diary and to maintain progress. If you cease lessons and I do not hear from you for a maximum of 4 weeks your space in the diary cannot be held and you can take the next place on the waiting list.
I will abide by the Voluntary Code of Practice which has been agreed between DVSA and the main bodies representing Approved Driving Instructors.
