The following terms and conditions represent the basis upon which training is offered by Driver Training Services. The provision of training is subject to the acceptance of these terms and conditions.
1. Learner’s Permit:
Student must hold a current, valid learner’s permit, and produce it at each scheduled lesson. Copies of the original not issued by the PA Department of Transportation will not be accepted. If you do not have your learner’s permit ready at the beginning of the lesson, the instructor must refuse to permit the student behind the wheel. Should this happen, you are still obligated to pay for the training session.
2. Payments and Cancellation Policy:
Tuition fees are normally payable in advance. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card. Any checks offered for payment that are subsequently refused by the bank will be subject to an administration charge of $35.00. Delinquent accounts will be suspended pending payment, and currently scheduled lessons may be cancelled.
If you need to cancel or re-arrange a lesson, you must provide at least 24 hours advance notice. Should you cancel a lesson within 24 hours of the scheduled start time, you will still be charged for the lesson in full and additional lessons may need to be purchased to meet minimum training requirements.
Your instructor will do everything possible to ensure that your lessons start and finish on time, but reserves the right to cancel, postpone or change lesson lengths and start/finish times under certain circumstances (e.g., dangerous weather conditions). In the event of postponement fees paid in advance will be carried forward.
The instructor reserves the right to cancel a lesson at short notice if it is suspected that the pupil may be unfit due to the effects of alcohol, drugs (prescribed or otherwise) or any other condition that would cause his/her driving to be dangerous or illegal. In such circumstances the lesson fee will be payable.
All services expire 1 year after the purchase date. Any service hours not redeemed by the first anniversary date become invalid and will not be honored.
Refunds are distributed at the discretion of management of Driver Training Services. If you feel a refund is due, please contact management at (215) 699-0836 or by email at email@example.com.
3. Bookings and Lesson Duration:
The normal lesson period is 90 minutes, beginning when the student gets behind the wheel. If, for any reason, the instructor is late for the lesson, he/she will make a concerted effort to inform the pupil of the estimated time of arrival. If the delay is greater than 15 minutes this time will be credited to the pupil and when possible the lesson will be extended by the time due – if this is not possible the extra time will be carried forward to the next suitable lesson.
4. Training Locations:
The instructor will determine a location for practical lessons which meets predetermined training goals with concern for both the pupil’s and public safety – this means that the instructor may need to drive the pupil to and from the lesson location; this journey time forms part of the lesson as paid for.
5. Training Vehicles:
Training vehicles utilized by the school are registered as such with the PA Department of Education and meet all requirements thereof. They are protected by commercial insurance, feature modern safety innovations, are fully roadworthy and fitted with dual controls.
6. Accompany To The Driver Exam:
Your instructor reserves the right to refuse to accompany a student in their personal automobile for a driving exam if he/she considers that vehicle potentially unsafe.
While your instructor will make every effort to ensure that the company training vehicle supplied for the driver’s exam will be fully road worthy and comply with all legal requirements at the start of the test, he/she cannot be held responsible for vehicle failure that occurs during the test and is not liable for consequential loss.
Your instructor cannot be held responsible for test appointments cancelled by the DMV due to bad weather, sickness, staff shortages or other reasons. Such cancellations are beyond the control of your instructor, and the Accompany To Test fee for the booked period will be carried forward as a credit on your account.
We reserve the right to change or alter any of the terms and conditions without notice. The most current version is always available on our website.
