Learn with Rich & Driver Training Cymru reserves the right to alter or amend the Terms and Conditions, fees and requirements. It is your responsibility to clarify any points that are vague or not understandable to you.

By choosing to undertake driving tuition from Rich (“The Instructor”), the Pupil accepts this agreement between the Pupil, and the Instructor.  

The Instructor shall make his services available to the Pupil for the sole purpose of giving the Pupil driving tuition at the rate per lesson from time to time agreed.

All matters relating to the timing, location and duration of individual lessons shall be subject to agreement between the Instructor and the Pupil.

The Instructor will carry appropriate motor insurance covering the Pupil whilst driving the tuition vehicle when accompanied by an Instructor or a DVSA Examiner.

The lesson fee shall be paid 48 hours in advance of each lesson. Payments should made direct to the Instructor via Bvank transfer or the Todal Drive app (fees apply), cheques are no longer accepted.

If the Pupil fails to give the Instructor forty-eight hours notice when cancelling any hourly lesson / lessons (including weekends and Bank Holidays), the Instructor reserves the right to charge the Pupil any amount up to and including the full cost of the lesson / lessons.  Repeat occurrences will result in the need to pre pay for lessons at the time of booking or in the refusal to offer lessons.

Cancellations for any intensive driving course or block booked course of lessons require 14 DAYS NOTICE otherwise the full course will be charged for.

Once a practical driving test has been confirmed by the Student the student is liable for all the costs relating to the practical driving test. A practical driving test cannot be cancelled without incurring costs unless there are FIVE clear working days leading up to the driving test. Learn with Rich & Driver Training Cymru undertakes to do everything within its ability to assist the student to complete his driving course and hours required leading up to the test. Learn with Rich & Driver Training Cymru cannot be held responsible for mechanical breakdown of the instructors car nor natural occurrences that may be assigned in legal terms to force majeure during the tuition period leading up to the test.

The Instructor will endeavour to give the Pupil forty-eight hours notice when cancelling any lesson.

The Instructor reserves the right to postpone lessons if he or she feels that the weather or road conditions are unsuitable or dangerous. The Instructor cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred as a result of him or her having to postpone any lessons, for whatever reason.

The Pupil agrees that he/she is duly licensed (inc provisional) to drive the tuition vehicle. The Pupil will be asked by the Instructor to show their driving licence at their first lesson. You must also be able to read a number plate from a distance 20.5 metres (67 feet) using your glasses or contacts if normally worn. Failing on either of these items will result in cancellation of the lesson and the full lesson fee being charged. Pupils must inform their driving instructor if they receive any endorsements or bans on their licence during the time they are receiving tuition.

The Instructor reserves the right to refuse to give tuition if, in the opinion of the Instructor, it is considered that the Pupil is unfit to drive due to any reason, including but not limited to: being under the influence of alcohol (any amount not just over the limit) or drugs (prescribed & illegal), illness, injury, failing to wear glasses or contact lenses, tiredness or demeanor. In these instances, the Instructor reserves the right to charge the Pupil for any amount up to and including the full cost of the lesson. In addition, the Instructor reserves the right to withhold the use of the tuition vehicle for the purposes of taking a practical driving test if, in the opinion of the Instructor, this would best serve the Pupil’s interests as recommended by the DVSA. This includes, but is not limited to, a situation where the Pupil has disregarded the Instructor’s advice to reschedule their test. The Pupil must also take note of any medication they are taking that may affect their ability to drive safely and advise the Instructor accordingly before taking any lesson booked.

The Instructor will issue a refund of any credit balance to pupils who cease to take hourly lessons for any reason, whether due to passing the practical driving test or not. However, where a pupil has booked and paid for a course of lessons that includes training materials, the cost of these items may be deducted from any refund. If any booking discount was applied then the refund will be calculated using the full lesson price X the number of lessons taken.

Pre paid block or discounted lessons are non transferable to other clients & must be used within 3 months. Unused lessons after that time will be forfeited. Introductory discounts and / or other offers are only valid for residents of Gwynedd & Anglesey.

The Pupil accepts that it is in their own interests to be punctual for their lesson appointments. Late pupil arrival will not mean a later finish. All such appointments should be recorded by the Pupil to ensure that mistakes are avoided. Where the Pupil fails to arrive punctually for a lesson, the Instructor would normally make efforts to contact the Pupil and then wait for a maximum of 10 minutes before the lesson would be abandoned and the full lesson fee charged. A reciprocal waiting time may become necessary if the Instructor is delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. Any lesson time lost as a result of this would be made up by the Instructor either at the end of the normal lesson time if possible or at a later date. The Instructor will endeavour to contact the Pupil to alert them of any delay greater than 5 minutes to the arrival at the agreed meeting point.

Legal Liability – Clients should be aware that their instructor’s primary objective is to promote road safety and in doing so he will have to issue instructions which clients must be prepared to carry out without undue argument. The instructor will make every effort to train you to the highest standards but can in no way be held liable for errors you commit whilst driving accompanied and unaccompanied by your instructor either before, during or after a test pass. Pupils must understand that in law they are responsible for any offences they commit whilst driving any vehicle at any time, including during lessons.

Lessons may be given in a clients own car at the instructor’s sole discretion and subject to the pupil reaching a standard close to that of the driving test, on further condition that: The car is fully insured, MOT’ed & in a clean & road worthy condition. The instructor is covered by such insurance to drive the car. The instructor can in no way be held liable for any damage or accident. While the instructor will make every effort to prevent the client having an accident, or damaging the car, it will be realised that their control is very limited. If the client wishes to have lessons in their own car then a second rear view mirror must be provided for the instructor. There will normally be no reduction in lesson charges.

Test Booking fees, for theory tests and practical driving tests need to be paid in advance. If Learn with Rich or Driver Training Cymru elects to make these payments on behalf of the student before having received any funds the student needs to effect payment within 24 hours of the said booking.
